Treasures Untold

(5 out of 5 stars)

"The original trio's 20-track Chicago session for ARC in October, 1940. It was their first studio session since leaving Decca in June, 1938. This set is immeasurably better than their previous ARC output (1935) in that the songs are new to their recorded repertoire, and, even today, sound fresh. The recording quality is very good, and the remastering work of Nick Shaffan and Mark Wilder has made the sound clear and clean. The songs themselves span the range expected from a Carter Family session. There is the old folk song, Black Jack David ( often known as 'Black Jack Davy'), the traditional sounding 'Beautiful Isle O'er The Sea', with its tuneful collection of unrelated verses, and the western tinged 'Buddies in the Saddle', from the pen of Maybelle. Religious material is, as usual, well represented, and there is also an A.P. solo in 'I Found You Among The Roses'. This is a love song, given an almost innocent charm by A.P.'s faltering tones. I liked this one, and 'Little Poplar Log House On The Hill', with its catchy, immensely hummable tune. My favourite is 'Bear Creek Blues', which uses much the same tune as their 'Coal Miner's Blues', recorded for Decca in June, 1938. Maybelle's intricate guitar work is pure joy. This is a superb album, both for Carter fans, and for fans of great country music."
Great old music

"This music hits close to the heart of us who worked the soil and lived by the sweat of our brow. The messages are close to home. Harry Summers record collector from Lancaster, PA USA"
