    Recording information: Atlanta, GA (04/14/1926-01/23/1931); Chicago, IL (04/14/1926-01/23/1931); Johnson City, TN (04/14/1926-01/23/1931); New York, NY (04/14/1926-01/23/1931); Richmond, IN (04/14/1926-01/23/1931); St. Louis, MO (04/14/1926-01/23/1931).
    An 18-track compilation of instrumentals featuring the work of Roy Harvey, Frank Hutchison, Sam McGee, Jess Johnson, Melvin Dupree, David Fletcher, Hoke Rice, Bayless Rose, John Dilleshaw and String Marvel, and Johnny and Albert Crockett, and the band the South Georgia Highballers, all recorded from 1926-30. The recordings, made for labels like Champion, Gennett, and Romeo, all sound amazingly clean, and the repertory includes blues, ragtime, and jazz, and even Spanish-influenced numbers, and a range of approaches including slide and flat-picking. Beyond the solo numbers, the accompaniments range from harmonica to fiddle band, and styles cover several regional influences to be found in West Virginia, Georgia, Tennessee, North Carolina, and other points east and south. Uncle Dave Macon appears speaking encouragement over a pair of two-part numbers by Grand Ole Opry veteran Sam McGee. The annotation is thorough, if a little disjointed in structure, and includes photographs and original label reproductions. ~ Bruce Eder
