Dock Boggs Country Blues Complete Early Recordings 1927-1929

Photo for Ad 112229

With his dark genius lauded by the literary likes of Greil Marcus in this compilation's accompanying 64-page hardcover booklet, Dock Boggs is remembered as a grim and tortured man who barely managed to save his soul with a banjo and a handful of songs. Originally recorded in the late 1920s, this collection illuminates the history of murder ballads like "Pretty Polly" from their origins in the English countryside to their more contemporary expressions (see "Polly" by Nirvana). While Boggs experienced popularity when these recordings were made, he retired from music for more than 30 years until being "rediscovered" in the early 1960s. Along with 12 classic Boggs performances, Country Blues includes five unreleased outtakes and four cuts with Dock as an instrumental sideman. --Mitch Myers

Nice book and one CD == cheapest used one on amazon is $39 including shipping and goes up from there

some static - but original recordings from 1927 - 1929

In the book he tells a story about being broke and out of gas --- went into town --- played his banjo and raised $10 in just a short amount of time with 200-300 people listening and the police told him he had to move ----

my grandma said .50 cents was a wagon wheel in the 1920's ... so Dock Boggs must have been amazing in person. He is quiet captivating even almost 100 years later!!!

$20 includes media rate with tracking .... insurance is $2.50 extra
