Origins of American Primitive Guitar [coll] – [Tompkins Square]

This is like a step back in time to early rural America, and reading the liner notes on the album is essential to appreciating the significance of the music contained herein. The artists on this record took guitars and banjos and introduced them to parlors in much the same way that hosts of salons in France introduced literary ideas and philosophy. Dating from 1923 to 1938, most of the songs are instrumental, although Side B contains a bit more commentary to accompany the music. Sylvester Weaver’s “Guitar Blues” was the first finger picked guitar solo to be recorded, ever.
