Abstract:

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.
