Various - Historic Sessions: The Johnson City Sessions - Can You Sing Or Play Old-Time Music? (4-CD Deluxe Box Set)

4 -CD boxed set (LP-size) with 136-page hardcover book, 100 tracks. Playing time approx. 302 mns.

The famous 1927 Bristol Sessions, produced by Victor Records in Bristol, Tennessee are known as 'The Big Bang Of Country Music.' But don't overlook the recordings made in nearby Johnson City by Columbia Records in October 1928 and October 1929. Collectively, the Johnson City recordings are regarded by scholars, collectors, and lovers of old-time music as a distinctive cross-section of Appalachian music, captured on the cusp of the Great Depression. Indeed, the final recordings of the 1929 session took place on October 24 - the infamous 'Black Thursday' when Wall Street crashed.

Bear Family Records has gathered the entire issued output of the 1928–29 Johnson City sessions. This is the first time all 100 songs have been issued together...and the first time many have been heard since the Depression. The accompanying 136-page, LP-size hardcover book contains newly researched essays on the background to the sessions and the artists, with many rare and unpublished photographs. Also included are complete song lyrics and a detailed discography.

Three of these performances were chosen by the pioneering scholar Harry Smith for his 1952 compilation 'Anthology Of American Folk Music' - a seminal source for the urban folk revival of the 1950s and '60s: The Coo-Coo Bird by Clarence (Tom) Ashley, Old Lady And The Devil by Bill and Belle Reed, and Down On Penny's Farm by The Bentley Boys - the inspiration for Bob Dylan's Hard Times In New York Town and Maggie's Farm. Other gems include a topical best-seller of the Prohibition era, When the Roses Bloom Again For The Bootlegger, the Grant Brothers' Tell It To Me, revived by the Old Crow Medicine Show, and many more.
'Can You Sing Or Play Old-Time Music?' is packed with stringband tunes, ancient ballads, sacred songs, hillbilly blues and blue yodels - the entrancing musical world of old Appalachia.

The Bristol Sessions - The Johnson City Sessions - The Knoxville Sessions

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.

The Johnson City Sessions, 1928-1929 – Can You Sing Or Play Old-Time Music

Vor rund zwei Jahren nahm sich Bear Family Records den Bristol Sessions an, nun folgt ein weiteres Box-Set zur Geschichte der Country-Musik. Sicher sind die Johnson-City-Sessions im Rückblick nicht so wichtig wie die Aufnahmen im nur einige Kilometer entfernten Bristol gewesen, die heute als „big bang of country music" gelten, machten im Jahre 1927 hier doch Jimmie Rodgers und die Carter Family ihre ersten Aufnahmen. Rund ein Jahr später machte sich ein anderer Produzent auf den Weg nach Tennessee, um wie bei den Bristol-Sessions vor Ort Aufnahmen zu machen: Frank Buckley Walker von Columbia Records war auf der Suche nach Talenten in Sachen originaler, volkstümlicher Musik der Appalachen. Auf vier CDs und mit einem 136-seitigen Buch dokumentiert Bear Family Records nun die Geschichte der beiden Sessions, die im Oktober 1928 und zwölf Monate später in Johnson City abgehalten wurden; erstmals sind alle veröffentlichten hundert Songs dieser Aufnahmen zusammen zu bekommen. „Can you sing or play old-time music?", fragte damals eine Anzeige in der lokalen Zeitung und lockte so zahlreiche Musiker der Gegend an. Hillbilly, viel Geistliches und sehr viel Blue Yodels gibt es hier zu entdecken. Auf die Länge für den Durchschnitts-DYNAMITE-Leser sicher zu anstrengend; für Fans der Old-Time-Music aber unerlässlich — mit den abgedruckten Texten aber zum Mitmachen geeignet und somit an mancher Stelle sogar erbaulich ...

If the 1927 Bristol Sessions can be considered \the Big Bang of Country Music\", then the Johnson City Sessions were a major aftershock.

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.”

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.

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.

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: ****

Presse Archiv - Various Artists Tell It To Me - The Johnson City Sessions - oltimereviews Some of the included tracks here make it seem obvious why the Bristol Sessions are considered seminal and these are not so well known. The Carter Family and Jimmie Rodgers are perhaps more individual in hindsight and their influence can be traced clearly and strong through the generations of future artists and musicians. However, here we find examples of the music of the people, which is as fine and representative of the people of the day living in those rural areas as was the work of the Carters and Rodgers. There is quite a shortage of female voice here. That is possibly the only thing which sticks out as unusual. Otherwise, the 26 artist names also bring to mind charmingly a bygone world. There are names and song titles which bring vibrancy and life to a time long gone. Despite this evocation, this music feels as fresh today as ever.

Press Archive - The Bristol Sessions - The Big Bang Of Country Music - East Tennessee State University
Presse - DYNAMITE MAGAZIN 11/12 - 14 Auflage 15.000 BCD16094 East Tennessee State University This essay considers the Bristol, TN/VA (1927-1928) and Johnson City, TN (1928- 1929) Sessions recordings released by the Bear Family label, as well as recordings, made by linguist Joseph Hall in the 1930s, of musical performances by residents of the Smokies in eastern Tennessee and west- ern North Carolina. I also consider here a collection of performances, by contempor- ary artists, of songs that Hall recorded in the 1930s. This essay is informed by my experience as a musician who has listened to, played, and written about the string- based vernacular music often called “old time music.” Like others who style them- selves connoisseurs of this music, I have paid careful attention to the content and context of recordings like those I consider here. I am particularly interested in these recordings since they are part of my current local environment; I currently live near the sites of these recordings, my work as a per- former and teacher involves using these recordings, and I work with people who were involved in the production of these collections. I chose these four collections because I am curious about what sense of place they afford other aficionados of old time music. My experiences with these recordings lead me to consider the larger question of how contemporary audiences and producers of old time music consume, engage, and create a sense of place through their music-making (listening, performing, mediating, etc.). As a participant-observer in old-time music-making circles, I have observed that we seem very concerned with place.
