Johnny Cash at Folsom Prison by Johnny Cash( Recording )

9 editions published between 1999 and 2015 in English and No Linguistic content and held by 760 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Johnny Cash's monumental At Folsom Prison remains a touchstone for country artists in and out of the mainstream, and a landmark in Cash's career, coming at the moment when he was ascending to the Mount Olympus of beloved American artists. As a statement of purpose, At Folsom Prison explores all the styles Cash has made his own and championed as the years have passed -- it's as honest an album as any artist has ever recorded. Bonus tracks include "Busted," "Joe Bean," and the tall tale Cash owns, "The Legend of John Henry's Hammer." Cash's original, Grammy-winning liner notes are reproduced, and he's added an intimate, personal reflection on this project to boot; for good measure, Steve Earle puts in his evocative two cents' worth in the liner copy as well

The history of American popular music provides crucial insights into the establishment of a distinctively American culture. Authors Larry Starr and Christopher Waterman examine popular music in the United States from its beginnings to the end of the 20th century, furthering our understanding of the relationship between music, culture, and social identity. Using well-chosen examples, insightful, up-to-date commentaries, and an engaging writing style, American Popular Music: From Minstrelsy to MTV poses such questions as: Why do people make and listen to music? What do they want from it? What does it give them? Numerous listening examples (corresponding to the 2-CD package that accompanies the text) prompt readers to listen closely to popular music and to learn about its history and the people and institutions that have produced it. American Popular Music: From Minstrelsy to MTV integrates detailed discussions of particular popular songs and recordings with a thoughtful consideration of the broader historical and cultural context. Other distinctive features include a rich illustration program, strong pedagogy including numerous boxed inserts, inclusion of earlier American popular music, and well-organized listening charts with lyrics. Themes such as the multicultural roots of popular styles, the development of musical technology, and the operations and strategies of the music industry unify the text. This book is an ideal text for courses in American Studies, Cultural Studies, Popular Culture, and Music. Its accessible style and warm tone will captivate students and other readers, encouraging them to become more critically aware listeners of popular music [Publisher description]

The unbroken circle : the musical heritage of the Carter Family by Carter Family (Musical group)( Recording )

4 editions published in 2004 in English and Dutch and held by 194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The history of American roots music lies with southwestern Virginia's Carter Family's hymns, white blues, transplanted British folk ballads and sentimental 19th-century parlor songs. Playing melody on her bass strings, Maybelle helped to bring the guitar to the forefront of pop instrumentation. Even at the peak of their 1920s-30s success, lead singer Sara's deep tones resonated with restrained sorrow (perhaps for a troubled marriage and a career she wanted far less than husband A.P. and sister-in-law Maybelle). With a voice as weathered as her native Clinch Mountains, Sara, though only in her 30s, sounded like "Worried Man Blues" would eat at her until she reached the "River Of Jordan." These 20 rural tunes come from 1935 and 1940 sessions for ARC and OKeh. None of them were previously recorded for Victor, but Legacy's sound far surpasses Rounder's catalog of their Victor output
