...1927-1935 - Blues, Jazz, Stomps, Shuffles & Rags. "24 tracks of rare fiddle music from the early years of recorded sound, covering a wide range of artists and styles. Playing ragtime tunes, country breakdowns, hardcore blues and hot jazz, these fiddlers cut loose on the instrument known as 'the devil's box.' Blues fans recognize Lonnie Johnson, Bo Carter, and Big Bill Broonzy as masters of the guitar, but these men were also talented fiddlers, and they're all included on this disc. You'll hear jazz from Chicago's South Side, string band music from Mississippi, and blues from Beale Street. The State Street Boys play uptown blues, while groups like the Alabama Rascals and the Dixieland Jug Blowers provide good-time dance music. And there's much, much more -- a full 74 minutes of music. Old Hat Records has teamed with Long Gone Sound Productions to capture the brilliant, clear sound of the original 78rpm records. The CD comes with a full-color, 32-page booklet that tells the fascinating story behind the music, illustrated with many rare photographs, drawings, and artifacts."
