Aimer et Perdre: To Love & To Lose Songs, 1917-1934

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Steve Leggett
Drawn from the Carpathian Mountains, the Cajun bayou and the rural Appalachians, this two-disc set of 78s released between 1917 and 1934 is made coherent by its theme of love found, lost, abandoned, and mourned, and with tracks like the desperately wracked "False Hearted Lover's Blues" by Dock Boggs, Emry Arthur's "She Lied to Me," and the Carter Family's "I Never Will Marry," it makes for a kind of alternative, rural, and often spooky journey through the joyous, sad, and sometimes tragic tangles of love.
