America Salutes The Carter Family!

Markly Morrison spent two years convincing people to play covers of The Carter Family into a cassette recorder, and here is the result. There'll probably be some familiar names on there, but all of it is worth investigating. Modern-day field recordings of classic country songs, plus a lengthy zine about the process of collecting the songs, all for $10? Yes please. Buy it now, or wait sixty years until the Smithsonian Folkways re-issue.
