Fonotone Americana

From Dust-to-Digital

Thanks to A Personal Miscellany for alerting me to this really wonderful item from dust-to-digital records, a massive 5 CD Fonotone box set of gorgeous americana - blues, gospel and hill-billy. A Personal Miscellany have even posted a couple of tracks including a really early John Fahey piece. Clearly reminiscent of the historic Harry Smith Anthology of American Folk Music - it should take pride of place alongside it. You can listen to excerpts from every track on the Fonotone website.
