Description
These gut-wrenching songs of love, longing, and malfeasance get right down to the real nitty-gritty. Many of them come from Cecil Sharp's Appalachian songbook, and several singers are descended from folks he heard there in 1916. A bonus DVD (The End of an Old Song) profiles balladeer Dillard Chandler of Madison County, NC, featured on 14 of these 26 milestone tracks from the 1960s. Highlights include "Pretty Saro," "In Zepo Town," "Cold Rain and Snow," "Short Time Here, Long Time Gone," and the haunting "I Wish My Baby Was Born" (heard in the film Cold Mountain).

"They certainly don't write songs like this anymore, and they don't sing 'em like this anymore, either. A wonderful, dark, mysterious, and fascinating set."—All Music Guide

"An amazing package.… If you love Appalachian music, then this is the CD and DVD for you…. Even though Dillard's experiences placed him in continual engagement with present-day America, he knew an ancient world within his head."—Musical Traditions

"Traditional songs about love and murder usually traceable to England, a century or more before, but sung in a style rooted in the region: the singers all stretch out, irregularly, on vowels of their choosing, and add upturned yips to the end of stanzas."—NYTimes

The folk music archives that form the wellspring of these Smithsonian recordings are truly incomparable. Encompassing a wide variety of styles, they reflect the heart, soul, and backbone of the American experience as well as indigenous music from around the world. Folkways' impeccable sound and documentation does these artists proud, setting their work off as the treasure it is.
