Various - Historic Sessions: The Knoxville Sessions 1929 - 1930, Knox County Stomp (4-CD Deluxe Box Set)

4-CD boxed set (LP-size) with 156-page hardcover book, 102 tracks. Total playing time approx. 300 minutes.

•    With this set, Bear Family Records completes the map of commercial recording in East Tennessee in the late 1920s and early 1930s.
•    ‘The Bristol Sessions, 1927–1928: The Big Bang Of Country Music’ documented epoch-making sessions by Victor Records that launched the careers of Jimmie Rodgers and The Carter Family, while
•    ‘The Johnson City Sessions, 1928–1929: Can You Sing Or Play Old-Time Music?’ focused on Columbia Records’ similar search for early country music talent in Appalachia, sessions that yielded many other seminal recordings.

The Knoxville Sessions, 1929–1930: Knox County Stomp features the music made at two sessions conducted by Brunswick Records at downtown St. James Hotel—music remarkable both for its variety and for the rarity of the records that preserved it.

Whereas the recordings made in Bristol and Johnson City were almost exclusively of old-time country and gospel music, the Knoxville sessions captured a more diverse gathering of Appalachian voices and sounds. Amidst old-time stringbands like the Tennessee Ramblers, the Southern Moonlight Entertainers, and the Smoky Mountain Ramblers, we also hear the majestic African American blues and gospel singer Leola Manning, the hot dance music of Maynard Baird & His Southern Serenaders, the virtuoso string ragtime of Howard Armstrong and the Tennessee Chocolate Drops, sacred songs by white and African American quartettes, songsters such as Will Bennett and Haskell Wolfenbarger, a unique recorded playlet about the Hatfield–McCoy feud—and even an address by the businessman whose enterprise brought Brunswick Records to Knoxville, Colonel J. G. Sterchi, president of the famous Sterchi Bros. furniture store chain.

The Knoxville Sessions, 1929–1930: Knox County Stomp gathers together, for the first time, all the issued recordings made at the St. James Hotel, remastered from the original 78s—some of them so elusive that only single copies are known to exist. These 102 fascinating performances, on four CDs, are accompanied by a 156-page, LP-sized hardcover book containing essays on the history of Knoxville, the background to the sessions, and the individual artists, much of the material based on new research. The book is also filled with scores of rare photographs, many previously unpublished, as well as complete song lyrics and a detailed discography with 250 illustrations.

Twice nominated for GRAMMIES 2012, in the category'Best Historical Album' and the category'Best Linernotes', bear FAmily Records Box Set - The Bristol Sessions -.

The Bristol Sessions, 1927-1928: The Big Bang Of Country Music' documents the pioneering recording sessions for Victor Records, which marked the beginning of the career of Jimmie Rodgers and the Carter Family, among others.

The Johnson City Sessions, 1928-1929: Can You Sing Or Play Old-Time Music?, on the other hand, focuses on Columbia Records' undertakings and their search for young country music talents from the Appalachian region, which in turn produced many more promising recordings.

The Knoxville Sessions, 1929-1930: Knox County Stomp presents recordings from two sessions supervised by Brunswick Records at the St. James Hotel downtown. The music stands both for its variety and for the high rarity of the records on which it can be heard.

They live again

Herald Courier 28.08.2016 "None the sets’ 326 collective tracks were recorded after 1930. Astoundingly, most are absent of pops and crackles. They live again. The songs, the people and theirs as well as our Appalachian past lives again."

11 Jul 2016

Genuinely historic stuff

Mojo July 2016 "Flawlessly curated box set of landmark Brunswick/Vocalion recordings from Knoxville, Tennessee. Genuinely historic stuff!"

31 May 2016

Faszinierend

No Fences # 71 "Die 102 faszinierenden Aufführungen auf 4 CDs werden von einem 156-seitigen gebundenen Buch in LP-Größe begleitet. Viele Informationen wurden erst kürzlich aufgedeckt."

26 May 2016

Sensationelle Leistung

Good Times 3/16 "Soundtechnisch ist den Spezialisten von Bear Family eine sensationelle Leistung gelungen, man mag es kaum glauben, dass diese Aufnahmen schon fast 90 Jahre auf dem Buckel haben."

17 May 2016

Such a worthy result

CMR, NAshville , 25.05.2016 "Ted Olson and Tony Russell well deserve hearty congratulations for undertaking such a massive talk, and achieving such a worthy result, as does Richard Weize for once again presenting a set, the likes of which would only ever come from Bear Family Records. One wonders how much less rich the heritage of country music will be now that Weize departed from the label he founded. "

Press - heraldcourier.com - Posted: Sunday, August 28, 2016 2:22 am BY TOM NETHERLAND SPECIAL TO THE HERALD COURIER JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. – Neither the Carter Family nor Howard Armstrong will literally return from the dead anytime soon. Likewise Appalachia circa late 1920s. However, with the recent completion of Bear Family Records’ trio of boxed sets, each elevates in the public eye. Windows opened to Appalachian times and people long gone by when Germany’s Bear Family zeroed in on the Bristol Sessions. Its complete recordings box set, “The Bristol Sessions: The Big Bang of Country Music 1927-1928,” in 2011 proved revelatory. Maybelle Carter as best she could returned from the grave. Music arose from a forgotten heap. Culture rebranded as honorable. East Tennessee State University professor Ted Olson shepherded the Bristol Sessions and subsequent complete recordings sets from the John-son City and Knoxville Sessions in a number of ways. He served as reissue producer, wrote liner notes and researched each of the three monumental collections. “It was a labor of love,” said Olson over lunch last week at Yee-Haw Brewery. “Bear Family spared no expense.”

Veteran old-time music scholars, writers, and producers Tony Russell and Ted Olson have teamed up again with the Bear Family label to present The Knoxville Sessions, 1929-30: Knox County Stomp, the complete recordings made at the St. James Hotel in Knoxville, Tennessee, by Brunswick/Vocalion Records. The sessions were an attempt by Vocalion, one of several record companies trying to capitalize on the new and developing market for country music, to record music on location in strategically chosen Southern cities, rather than to recruit artists to their studios in New York City, a much more challenging prospect.
