Classic Recordings of the 1920s & 1930s

Yazoo 2200; Ordering Information

As the Mississippi Delta is to blues, Kentucky is to fiddle music, banjo playing, and classic old ballads and songs. No other state comes close in both terms of amazing diversity of styles and just pure prodigious amounts of classic performances. This 7-CD box set contains 167 all-time great performances by some of the finest country musicians who ever lived — it is a treasure trove of Americana. Since all the recordings are from the 1920s and 1930s, it's as close to the ultimate sources as anything can be. Included in this box set is a 32 page 5" X 11" booklet containing stunning period photos of many of the musicians and copious background notes.
