Entitled, Good’le Days: Essential Recordings, the new CD is part of Rounder’s budget-minded Perfect 10 Series, each of which includes ten tracks from an important Rounder artist. They show the selling price online as $7.99.
How would you like to pick just ten tracks to represent the music of such a legend? Well, here’s what Ken Irwin and Marian Levy came up with…
- Skippin’ in the Mississippi Dew
- Gum Tree Canoe
- Gentle on My Mind
- In Tall Buildings
- The Vamp from Back in the Goddle Days
- Wrong Road Again
- Good Old Electric Washing Machine — circa 1943
- Take Me Back to My Mississippi River Home
- Old Time River Man
The tracks were taken from recordings Hartford did for the Flying Fish label between 1976 and 1989. They include featured performances from guest artists and frequent Hartford collaborators Sam Bush, Jerry Douglas, Mark O’Conner, Roy Huskey Jr., Benny Martin, Norman Blake, Vassar Clements and Tut Taylor.
