Obligatory Christmas restock! 24 Recordings from 1917 - 1959. "Following up last year's critically acclaimed Goodbye, Babylon box set, Dust-to-Digital is proud to announce our new Holiday Series, curated by musicologist Dick Spottswood. Based on his popular radio show in Washington, D.C., our series is initiated with a Christmas Gift, a compact disc full of rare yuletide gems. Just as Goodbye, Babylon showed the many sides of gospel music, this CD shows many sides of Christmas -- from Jesus born in the manger to Leroy Carr spending the holiday in jail. Some of the artists featured include Alabama Sacred Harp Singers, Butterbeans and Susie, Fiddlin' John Carson, Cotton Top Mountain Sanctified Singers, Lightning Hopkins, Los Jibaros, Kansas City Kitty, Lead Belly, Lord Executor, Maddox Brothers and Rose, and Bessie Smith. Together they provide a stark contrast to the commercialized Christmas we know today..."
