Format: Audio CD
Where else, I wonder, would you find Bobbie Leecan's Need-More Band on the same CD as Thelma Terry & her Playboys and Frenchy's String Band? That's just three little-known bands on the first CD, which covers 1925 to 1930. The second CD goes from 1931 to 1941, and includes Lionel Belasco, Milton Brown, Eva Taylor, and Bob Wills. The third CD concentrates on the output of bass player Bill Johnson, which takes in jazz, gospel, blues, and jug bands.

There's a total of 79 tracks in this eclectic compilation, and each gets a page to itself, with photo, line-up, and commentary, in the accompanying 96-page book. All that's missing is details of the original 78 issue. It's a fascinating collection, beautifully remastered, which should be more widely-known.

bull fiddle in its hay day!! 31 Oct 2009
By L - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
my favorite instrument is the upright bass or as i call it bull fiddle. i have been collecting music from the 20-s through 40s for many years. only other good collection of bass cds that i know
of from this era, brother he sure can pull sum bow(mostly blues and one disc) but this one is much better, covers more ground, from jug bands to bob wills, jack teagarden, duke ellington, cab calloway, jelly roll mortan, roy accuff, tampa red, , 3 disc and all the songs are good. many players on here ive never heard who play in ways ive never heard. comes with a very well made 96 page book with information on the the history of the the upright double bull fiddle. lots of information about the bands, and lots and lots of really cool pictures of basses throughout time. higly recommend.

A Bass Player's Dream 9 Mar 2007

Wow! What an excellent historical overview of the string bass-an instrument that doesn't always get the attention it deserves. This anthology is a wonderful resource for my course about the jazz masters of the bass. Bravo!!

Reasons this collection doesn't get a full five stars 9 Feb 2014
By Dan Weinstein - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
It's a fine collection with many rare items that fill in the picture of the rise of string bass in recorded jazz and other styles. There are a few inaccuracies in the booklet: A photo of Moses Allen, Jimmie Lunceford's bass player, which is a still out Lunceford's one and only movie short subject, is misidentified as Al Morgan. Allen has no records in the collection, as well. Also, the notes to "Who's Sorry Now" state that piano and drums are inaudible. In fact, Zutty Singleton's cymbals are heard clearly in parts of this record. Missing artists that would have filled in the picture even more: Hayes Alvis (particularly with Mill's Blue Rhythm Band), Billy Taylor Sr., Harry Goodman, Bob Haggart, Chick Webb's "Don't Be That Way" and Teddy Wilson/Billie Holiday's "What a Little Moonlight Can Do" with major contributions from John Kirby, the 16-year old(!) Israel Crosby on records with Jess Stacy, Gene Krupa, Albert Ammons, Teddy Wilson and Fletcher Henderson, Bob Will's "Osage Stomp", several of the Dec. 1932 Bennie Moten sides with Walter Page and many early Count Basie records with Page, that influenced bass players around the country to move higher up the neck. Just sayin"...
