Product Description

BGT Americana traces the history of Americana, from its origins as a catch-all term for US roots based folk, country, soul, rhythm & blues & rock & roll to its definition today as alt-country.

Features tracks from many of the key American recording artists of the 20th and early 21st century such as: Wilco, The Band, Steve Earle, Waco Brothers, Meat Puppets, Aretha Franklin, Al Green, Emmylou Harris, Johnny Cash, Odetta, Willie Nelson, Blind Willie Johnson, Leadbelly & Woody Guthrie

Compiled by Max Reinhardt - presenter of BBC Radio 3's Late Junction & the compiler of the Americana-defining albums `Beyond Nashville', `Way Beyond Nashville' & `Further Beyond Nashville'

First off Amazon have mixed up the CDs making CD 3 as CD 1 and CD1 as CD 3.
Otherwise this is in chronolgical order but with half of this new to CD its not for beginners at all whatever that's supposed to mean
What is now called Americana was decades ago called hillbilly but the boundaries were shifted in the 70s.The media throw up all kinds of names like New Grass and Nu Grass yet its the same thing-R & B and country

Beginers guide to Americana 8 Jan. 2012
By David - Published on Amazon.com

Am pretty happy with the box.I thought there was a bit to much old cuts from the 1930s and 1940s.Prefer discs 2 and 3 over disc 1.
