Blessing to People
From the pen of Dorsey M. Dixon came many classics of Americana, songs that would reverberate through decades of country, bluegrass and folk. This 121-track box contains 33 of Dorsey’s solo recordings from 1961–62 plus all the surviving recordings he made with his brother Howard and their affiliated groups beginning in the ’30s. The first-ever boxed set devoted to these Depression Era legends contains more than four hours of music plus a 164-page hardcover book packed with extensive song notes, essays, unpublished photos, complete lyrics and even the original session sheets. A great deal of these haven’t been heard since the Great Depression: That Old Vacant Chair; Beautiful Stars; That Old True Love; Little Bessie; Dark Eyes; How Can a Broke Man Be Happy; Satisfied at Last; Under the Old Cherry Tree; Where Shall I Be; Broken Hearted Girl; Prisoner’s Plea; Bootlegger’s Story; Tempted and Tried; Time for Me to Go; Speak Evil of No Man; ’Twas Only a Dream; The Factory Girl; The Church at the Foot of the Hill; the original versions of Weave Room Blues; Spinning Room Blues; Down with the Old Canoe; Two Little Rosebuds; Intoxicated Rat; I Didn’t Hear Anybody Pray (aka Wreck on the Highway), and more!
