Product description

Product Description

Five essential, out-of-print albums by US alt-country / bluegrass legend and Grammy Award-winner John Hartford. Originally recorded for RCA Records, the albums John Hartford Looks at Life (1966), Earthwords & Music (1967), The Love Album (1967), Housing Project (1968) and John Hartford (1969) form the foundation on which Hartford built a legendary musical legacy. A contemporary of Kris Kristofferson and Mickey Newbury, Hartford's music is masterful and unique, never easy to categorise incorporating elements of country-rock, folk, bluegrass, pop and low-key hints of psychedelia. As a respected American roots scene multi-instrumentalist Hartford commanded a loyal fan base and following his involvement with the Coen Brothers' acclaimed film O Brother, Where Art Thou? (2000) and his death in 2001, interest in his music has continued to flourish. These albums presents some of his finest moments, including his original version of the self-penned 'Gentle on my Mind', later a major US hit for Glen Campbell and also covered by Frank Sinatra and Aretha Franklin. These rollicking albums showcase Hartford's laconic wit, song writing skills and instrumental prowess. "A brilliant performer, the quintessential musician and storyteller" - Emmylou Harris. "The single most original musician/composer in Nashville" - Del McCoury. With 63 tracks of superb audio quality, color booklet and detailed liner notes this is a must-have collection for all alt-country / bluegrass aficionado.
