NOMADMan Songcatcher (55* d) RE: Songcatcher 09 Mar 06


Yes, the original soundtrack CD was quite uninterseting - to my ears at least. However, Vanguard subsequently issued a CD titled "Songcatcher II - The Traditions That Inspired the Movie." Quite nice. It includes tracks by Almeda Riddle, Hobart Smith, Doc Watson, Dock Boggs, Sarah Ogan Gunning, Roscoe Holcomb, Cousin Emmy, Fiddlin' Arthur Smith, Clarence Ashley and Maybelle Carter, all recorded long before the movie of course The booklet notes say a few kind words about the soundtrack CD, but do politely suggest that those performances were not entirely satisfying.

Regards,
John
