VARIOUS ARTISTS - Texas Hillbillies - 4 CD Box Set

This collection of 93 instrumentals and songs provides a tantalizing glimpse into the string band music performed by Texas 'hillbilly' musicians in the 1920s and 1930s. An eternity of musical secrets is locked within these discs that beg for further study and sleuthing, and will keep the listener mesmerized for a lifetime. These musicians from the pre-war era drew from very old folk traditions while they forged new pathways with boundary breaking experimentation. A journey far back into the depths of an early Texas, when the music was resonating with echoes of the elders and the birthing pangs of young bloods. A magical place where you'll find as much diversity within the early string band traditions as you find in the history of popular Texas music itself.
