50 Years: Where Do You Come From? Where Do You Go?

50 Years: Where Do You Come From? Where Do You Go?

Collectively known as the New Lost City Ramblers, Mike Seeger, John Cohen, and Tom Paley were pioneers in the revival of Southern mountain music during the folk music revival of the late 1950s and early 1960s. They brought the sounds of genuine old-time string band music and early bluegrass to eager city and college audiences who had grown disillusioned with the commercial pap of the folk boom. This set features two previously released CDs of the Ramblers classic Folkways recordings: The Early Years, 1958-1962 with the original trio, and Out Standing in Their Field: Volume II, 1963-1973, with Tracy Schwarz replacing Tom Paley. A newly compiled third disc,Where Do You Come From? Where Do You Go? celebrates the band's 50th anniversary in 2009, presenting more choice Ramblers selections along with their field recordings of the traditional Southern musicians who inspired them including: Dock Boggs, Roscoe Holcomb, Tom Ashley, Maybelle Carter, Elizabeth Cotten, Eck Robertson, Cousin Emmy, Reverend Gary Davis, Kilby Snow, Dillard Chandler, Dellie Norton, and the Balfa Brothers. 81 tracks, over 3 ½ hours of music, 88-page booklet over 3 CDs. Disc #3 includes 6 previously unreleased songs.

EN ESPAÑOL
Conocidos colectivamente como New Lost City Ramblers, Mike Seeger, John Cohen y Tom Paley fueron pioneros en el renacimiento de la música de las montañas del sur durante el renacimiento de la música popular de la década de 1950 y comienzos de 1960. Ellos trajeron los sonidos de la música genuina de la banda de cuerda de antaño y de principios del bluegrass, al público entusiasmado de la ciudad y la universidad, quienes habían crecido desilusionados con la trivialidad comercial del auge popular. Este kit incluye dos CDs de los Ramblers lanzados anteriormente en las grabaciones clásicas de Folkways: The Early Years, 1958-1962 con el trío original, y Out Standing in Their Field: Volume II, 1963-1973, con Tracy Schwarz reemplazando a Tom Paley. Un tercer disco recién compilado, ¿De dónde vienes? ¿A dónde vas? en 2009, celebra el aniversario número cincuenta de la banda, presentando más posibilidades de elección de las selecciones de los Ramblers, junto con sus grabaciones de campo de músicos tradicionales del sur quienes los inspiraron e incluyen a: Dock Boggs, Roscoe Holcomb, Tom Ashley, Maybelle Carter, Elizabeth Cotten, Eck Robertson, Cousin Emmy, el reverendo Gary Davis, Kilby Snow, Dillard Chandler, Dellie Norton y los Hermanos Balfa. 81 pistas, más de 3 horas y media de música, folleto de 88 páginas sobre 3 CDs. El disco # 3 incluye 6 canciones inéditas.
