Music from the South, Vol. 1: Country Brass Bands

The fieldwork for this album sought to explore sources that would lead listeners back to the decades between the emancipation of the slaves in 1863 and 1900. The collector, Frederick Ramsey, Jr., endeavored to find old artists who had not yet been recorded, and with the single exception of Elder David Ross of New Orleans, he succeeded.
