part 2 of third man's remastered vinyl  reissue of one of the most popular string bands of the late 1920s & early 1930s' complete recorded works.

formed in jackson around 1926, the band blended country & blues fiddle music -- both old-fashioned & risqué -- & included guitarist walter vinson & fiddler lonnie chatmon, with frequent appearances by guitarists bo carter & sam chatmon, who were also busy with their own solo careers. the recordings presented in this reissue series are the building blocks & dna of american culture. blues, r&b, elvis, teenagerism, punk rock... it all goes back to these vital, breathtaking recordings. features brand new, jaw-dropping artwork by rob jones.
