Product description

Product Description

The Delmore Brothers, Alton (b. 1908) and Rabon (b. 1916), were one of the great early country harmonizing duos who recorded from 1933 to the early '50s and were a significant influence on other sibling duos such as The Louvin Brothers and The Everly Brothers. Their later recordings, from about 1944 on, are fairly widely available but the earlier sides on this 87 track, 4CD set have been harder to find until now. Unusually for that time the Delmores would switch high and low harmony parts from song to song or even within the same song, and whether performing their own songs, traditional ones or gospel they brought a strong bluesy feeling to both their music and their vocals. The subject matter of the songs the duo recorded in the '30s was also akin to the blues, covering such disparate topics as unrequited love, marital problems, the urge to travel to escape from a poor life, plus the nostalgic and more sentimental songs that yearn for days of long ago. This is a typically authoritative JSP coverage of the duo's best early recordings, with extensive essay detailing their life and career.
