Synopsis

Album Description
28 Track Cd Anthology of his original 1960's recordings for the Monument Label! Apocalyptic apes, black magic, inbred families, wiccanism, libertarianism and heartfelt pleas for tolerance and compassion. These are the wonderful tunes of renowned folklorist Jimmy Driftwood. Covered by everybody from Johnny Cash (on his sublime "American Recordings" album) to Johnny Horton (his #1 hit "Battle Of New Orleans") amongst many others; these are his original 1960's recordings for the Monument label. Lovingly remastered and presented here for the first time on CD. Hear the "Hillbilly Alan Lomax" chronicle ritual dismemberment, limbs that communicate from beyond the grave and other charming facets of Arkansas mountain life. An engaging stew of backwoods philosophy, cryptic observations, progressive candour, homespun spirituality and the stirring desire for a better life, these timeless recordings will make you tap your feet as they gently mess with your mind. You have been warned. First time on CD! Deluxe collectors 16 page full colour package featuring original LP artwork and exclusive liner notes. All tracks are remastered 2006 from the original master tapes! Compiled and curated by noted musician (Snog, Soma, Black Lung) and film composer David Thrussell.
