A foundation stone of the popular music of the twentieth century. Moving, fascinating and enjoyable!

It's not too much to say that in the late '20s the trio of A.P. Delaney Carter, his wife Sara, and his sister-in-law Maybelle changed the course of country - and popular - music. They did it with haunting harmonies, fine guitar playing and a vast repertoire of murder ballads, gospel tunes, love songs, and Appalachian folk melodies which would be covered by musicians for decades. And this wasn't just the often derided 'hillbilly' music; this was something timeless, that defies definition and which still resonates. Our five-CD collection is the most complete collection of their early output - from the initial 1927 Bristol 'Big Bang' sessions to their depression-era recordings. Even today, Sara Carter's voice sounds aching, yet empowered. Whether they're yodelling through The Foggy Mountain Top, singing a feminist anthem like Single Girl, Married Girl, or harmonizing with Maybelle on Worried Man Blues, you can hear the Carters' huge influence on country music. A must-have.
