TELL IT TO ME: REVISITING THE JOHNSON CITY SESSIONS, 1928-1929
Bear Family Productions
BCD17591

1-CD with 40-page booklet, 26 tracks. Total playing time approx. 77:27 minutes.
Released in August 2019 in conjunction with the 90th Anniversary celebration of the Johnson City sessions, ''Tell It To Me: Revisiting the Johnson City Sessions, 1928-1929’ is intended to demonstrate what music historian Ed Ward meant when he tweeted "Johnson City Sessions: Lots more fun than the Bristol Sessions. Fewer stars, more insight into a vanished world.'' 
Intended to distill onto a single CD the groundbreaking research found on Bear Family Records' award-winning 4-CD boxed set ‚The Johnson City Sessions: Can You Sing or Play Old-Time Music?’ (BCD 16083), released in 2013, ’Tell It To Me’ offers 26 essential highlights from Columbia Records' historically significant location recording sessions in Johnson City, Tennessee, in 1928 and 1929.
Recordings of this compilation album include some of the most iconic and influential recordings from the 1920s, including Clarence Ashley's original recording of The Coo-Coo Bird, Charlie Bowman's Roll On, Buddy, Byrd Moore and His Hot Shots' Three Men Went A Hunting, Bill and Belle Reed's Old Lady And The Devil, and the Bentley Boys' Down On Penny's Farm. 
’Tell It To Me’ features a new essay in which Grammy Award-nominated liner notes writer Ted Olson describes the Johnson City sessions, sets them into historical context, and assesses their lasting historical impact.  
Because ’Tell It To Me’ showcases the usual state-of-the-art sound engineering generally associated with releases from Bear Family, these nine-decade-old recordings sound warm and clear--as if they were made yesterday.

Featuring 26 recordings by 26 different musical acts that were active in the late 1920s, ’Tell It To Me’ presents a diverse and dynamic overview of Appalachia's vernacular music at the cusp of the Great Depression. While representing a range of genres and styles and showcasing both secular and sacred material, this album is thematically unified by the fact that all of the tracks hail from commercial location recording sessions held by Columbia Records in Johnson City, Tennessee, during successive Octobers in 1928 and 1929. With 25% of the released sides from those two Johnson City recording forays, ’Tell It To Me’ documents timeless performances from the 1928-1929 sessions and bolsters recent assertions by discerning aficionados of 78 RPM records that those sessions generated a particularly memorable canon of historical recordings.

Presse Archiv - Various Artists Tell It To Me - The Johnson City Sessions - Revisted (CD) - JP's Music BlogRevisit The Johnson City Sessions With New "Tell It To Me" Compilation Back in 2013, the Bear Family Records label released the award-winning box set "The Johnson City Sessions: Can You Sing Or Play Old-Time Music?" It featured songs from the Columbia Records archives that were recorded in Johnson City, Tennessee between 1928 and 1929. On August 2nd, the Bear Family Records released a new 26-song condensed version of that set, which highlights mainly the essential tracks, in honor of the 90th anniversary of the Johnson City Sessions. The set features some of the earliest recordings for Columbia Records as artists like Clarence Greene ("Johnson City Blues") and Jack Johnson ("I'm Just A Black Sheep") showcase the basics of the blues. You also get that one-of-a-kind classic country twang with artists like Grant Brothers ("Tell It To Me Baby") and Charlie Bowman ("Roll On Buddy"). The classic folk strumming of George Roark ("I Ain't A Bit Drunk") and Roy Harvey with Leonard Copeland ("Just Pickin'") will quicken your pulse with their swift guitar playing. It's nice to take a step back from today's modern music to appreciate the tunes and melodies that helped shaped these forms of music that we have come to love.

Presse Archiv - Various Artists Tell It To Me - The Johnson City Sessions - Revisted (CD) - cashboxmusicreviews Tell It To Me: Revisiting The Johnson City Sessions 1928-1929 Various Artists Bear Family/MVD 2019 Review by David Bowling It's time to climb into the time machine and visit a long-gone musical era. During the late 1920's and early 1930's, various record labels would visit different areas of the country, conduct musical try-outs, and then record the best of those who auditioned. The Victor, Okeh, and Columbia labels all visited the Appalachian area of the United States. The best known of these auditions was Victor's 1927 Bristol Sessions, which produced the first commercial recordings of Jimmie Rodgers and the Carter Family. Several years later Columbia recorded 100 songs by various artists. While these sessions may not have produced any great stars; they do form a vital link to the development of American music. Several years ago a 4-CD box set was released that included the entire Johnson City Sessions. Now Tell It To Me: Revisiting The Johnson City Session 1928-1929 has been issued. It is a more manageable release, in that it includes 26 tracks by 26 different artists. While the artists contained on this CD have mostly disappeared into musical history; the music they left behind forms the beginnings of American country, bluegrass, and rockabilly music, and helped sow the seeds of rock and roll. Songs and artists such as "When The Roses Bloom For The Bootlegger" by McVay & Johnson, "Just Over The River" by Garland Brothers & Grindstead, "Green Valley Waltz" by McCartt Brothers & Patterson, "Just Pickin'" by Roy Harvey & Leonard Copeland, "Buttermilk Blues" by Ellis Williams, and "The Battleship Maine" by Richard Harold are raw, basic, and recorded during a very non-technological age. The songs include guitars, fiddles, mandolins, banjos, washboards, spoons, and just about anything else that could be used to create sounds. The sound is nowhere near modern standards. Recorded in an empty store building; every once in a while you can hear a train whistle or sounds from a lumber company in the background. Whether this music will appeal to you depends on your commitment to the roots of American music. If you are so inclined, Tell It To Me: Revisiting The Johnson City Sessions 1928-1929 will be a treasure trove that leads to a captivating historical journey. Rating: ****
