...Old-Time Music of North Carolina 1926-1936. "'North Carolina, the 'Tar Heel State,' has a proud heritage of traditional music, and this CD anthology from Old Hat Records, In The Pines, offers compelling proof. Here are 24 rare tracks first recorded between 1926-1936, a decade of inspired musical achievement. You'll hear old-time fiddle and banjo tunes, folk songs and murder ballads, gospel hymns, mountain blues and railroad songs, all performed by the state's top musical talent. Most tracks are reissued here for the first time on compact disc, and the music is digitally remastered for brightness and clarity. In The Pines has been carefully crafted by Old Hat's team of experts, and the entire CD package is handsomely designed in a style to match the music. Included is a 24-page, full-color booklet with rare vintage photographs, many unpublished until now, and extensive historical notes on the era, the songs, and the musicians."
