Synopsis

Amazon.com
Born just five years after the Civil War in the beautifully named Smart Station, Tennessee, the Country Music Hall of Famer David Harrison Macon didn't even have a stage career until he was nearly 50 years old. A born showman, he soon became the Grand Ol' Opry's first bona-fide star, amusing audiences with antics like clogdancing, high kicking, and throwing his banjo into the air and passing it between his legs while continuing to play. Go Long Mule is vintage Dixie Dewdrop, showcasing his old-time clawhammer banjo on string band ensemble numbers like "Rock About Saro Jane" and "She's Got the Money, Too." One of country music's first and most influential stars, Macon continued to play the Grand Ol' Opry until just three weeks before his death at the age of 81.
 

CD Reviews

Excellent example of Uncle Dave Macon's work.

(5 out of 5 stars)

"This cd is another fine reproduction of Uncle Dave Macon's music and fun. A couple of tracks have some noise in them but all-in-all this is a fine recording. If you like real country music this is for you. The liner notes are even worth reading."
