Synopsis

Product Description
The late Hamper McBee was a moonshiner, carnival barker & balled singer of legendary proportions with a warm, powerful voice seasoned by prodigious quantities of cigarettes, booze & joie de vivre. Recorded by the renowned country music scholar CHARLES K. WOLFE and filmmaker SOL KORINE at HamperÕs home in Monteagle, Tennessee, in 1977, "The Good Old-Fashioned Way" compiles the best of McBeeÕs traditional ballads, affecting original compositions, & outlandish, side-splitting stories of life on the carnival circuit, at the moonshine still, in the back of Sheriff Bill MaloneÕs patrol car, & as Hamper McBee.

"Calling Over Time is that record you've been looking for...the one record you can put on when your alone in your room with a dim candle-light shimmering in the corner. You press play on your stereo sending forth the first haunting chord, and another, then a warm rush of energy tingles up your spine like a spider crawlling on her web: and angel softly cooes the most lush and beautiful sound you've ever heard...that's Edith Frost."

"I first heard the song "Temporaray loan" (the first on the album) on a compilation. I found it wonderful: a song without many effects, a few chords, but an incredible atmosphere, absolutely mesmerizing. Infinite sadness, but quiet, without desperation. A few months later, I saw Edith Frost on stage in France, opening for the "Dutch Harbour" project (a silent documentary about fishing in Alaska, with a live soundtrack played by Edith's musicians). Beautiful gig. I bought the album which was really difficult to find. "Temporary loan" is maybe the best song, but all the others, including some happier ones, are great. I think Jim O'Rourke produced it. or maybe John McEntire. There are many Chicago post-rock musicians playing on it, and also Sean O'Hagan (High Llamas). They play just as they should, supporting lightly Edith's voice. If you like Cowboy Junkies, Tarnation, and all the new folk-country-indie scene, you will love this record."
You need to listen to Edith Frost!

"If you haven't discovered Edith Frost by now (and if you're reading this review -- you must have and are curious), you really need to take 5 minutes out of your life to listen to her CD. Soulful, purposeful, passionate....quiet. This is how I would sum up Edith Frost and especially her release "Calling Over Time."You will be stunned by her music. Edith Frost is part of the Drag City crew, and you can find her on several other artists' releases. She is excellent on her own and she definitely adds a little extra to other's releases too. Nothing flashy, just down home alternative rock/country/folk....there's probably a million other ways to "categorize" her music, but I'll you, dear listener, be that judge."
