Subject: RE: Carter Family Lyric Sites
My pleasure. The one that I labelled #2 has been mentioned a few times in the forum - and now Mudcat linked by Joe - but these things are sometimes missed by those who would be most interested.

I got a beaut CD in the mail yesterday: Jody Stecher and Kate Brislin 'Songs of the Carter Family' Appleseed CD 1043. It has Larry Hanks adding bass vocals to several tracks and Suzy Thompson added on one track. There are 12 songs, including many less covered ones such as 'Bear Creek Blues', 'Away Out on the Old Saint Sabbath' and others. This is the loveliest tribute to the Carter Family since the truly wonderful 'Meeting In the Air' LP on Flying Fish by members of the Red Clay Ramblers - sadly, that gem has never made it to CD. Appleseed have also released a second volume from Warner Collection - 'Nothing Seems Better to Me: The Music of Frank Proffitt and North Carolina' Appleseed CD 1036. Indispensible.
