Overview

Country Folk

Those looking for a comprehensive, cheaply priced compilation of the Carter Family's work will be more than satisfied with this four-disc set from Proper Records. Clocking in at 103 songs, it spans the entire length of the Carters' career, from their initial recording sessions in Bristol, VA (the same sessions that helped make Bristol the birthplace of country music) to the trio's final studio appearance in 1941. Some key songs are missing, most notably "Will the Circle be Unbroken," but Country Folk stills offers a better summary of the Carter Family than most collections. A 44-page booklet is also included, featuring an enjoyable and detailed narrative that traces the group's history alongside the compilation's tracks.

The Carter Family is perhaps the most important musical family in American history. Their recordings, in every practical sense, created the Country Music industry (if not the modern Recording industry as a whole). Their songs, their lyrics, are amazing in their content and performance. Any song writer would benefit tremendously by being exposed to these songs. This very affordable four disk set is a true gift to any fan of Country Music or Roots Music. But if you're a true fan, with lots and lots of money to spend, then you ought to get the definitive 12 CD box set titled: "In the Shadow of Clinch Mountain" from the Bear Family Company (available on this Barnes and Nobel site).
