CD Reviews

Archival Rare Recordings
busotti | 02/09/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This Ocora disc collects recordings from an earlier era of recorded sound (1920's). While the audio fidelity is not up to modern standards, the performances shine through and this is going to be one of your only chances to hear celebrated musicians of the day. Of exceptional interest to those who enjoy Yazoo records insanely great "Secret Museum of Mankind" series.

I can only shake my head in bewilderment at the reviewer who decried this on the basis of audio fidelity. Should we toss out the recordings of FDR or MLK because they weren't recorded at 24 bit/96 kHz? Should be ignore the recordings of Blind Willie Johnson or Skip James in favor of the modern sound of a "Blues Hammer"? Yikes."
