Product Description

Led by steady-handed guitar picking, the quavering, deadpan voices of the Carter Family spelled out tales of longing, death, and faith with a imperturbable calm that obscured the roiling storm clouds their songs described. Of course, much has been written about the Carter Family's haunting, lonely sound, and a quick read of the family's turbulent history only adds to the chilly mystique of this legendary group. And while the Carter songbook certainly had its share of gloom and doom, many of the songs collected on this wonderful recording also speak to the other trait that ran through Carter blood: hope. "I'll Be Home Someday," "Something Got a Hold of Me," and even the WWII anthem "Keep on the Firing Line" all inspire listeners and preach that somewhere (either heaven, Virginia, or Tennessee), there is a better place. These are simple songs, but the wallop they pack makes this collection absolutely essential for any understanding of American song. --S. Duda
