5.0 out of 5 stars Essential listening, 12 Jun 2002
This review is from: Freight Train Boogie (Audio CD)
For far too long the Delmore Brothers were never accorded the recognition they deserved. Not quintessential hillbilly, blues or boogie, but an inimitable mixture of the three with superb close harmony added, this CD covers their recordings from 1946 to 1952. These seminal recordings work on 2 levels: if you're a student of contemporary music the first will show how much The Everly Brothers were influenced by the Delmore Brothers years later; later still "Rounder's Blues" lyrics were revised, the record retitled "Going Up County" and recorded by Canned Heat.
On the second level the tracks are simply superb listening - "Boogie Woogie Baby" and "Pan American Boogie" alone make the CD worth the money. A great purchase and yet another outstanding Ace CD.

Definitely one of the best releases by Ace Records . If you like bluesy , boogie , rootsy country in its rawest form , this cd is a must . Great blues harp , great guitar picking and twenty tracks that are the equal to anything that you will find in American Roots music . An essential buy !

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful crossover, 5 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Freight Train Boogie (Audio CD)
This is one of the most wonderful boogie/country crossover records you'll ever hear! Lovely evocative sounds from a bygone musical style portrayed by two singers who left us too early. Rush out and get it - you won't be sorry! CD producers - let's have some more like this!
