(2-CD set with 76 page hardcover book) It was 1966, and the success of the American Folk & Blues festivals in Europe led to the Festival of American Country Music. But this wasn't slick Nashville music, it was old time, Cajun, bluegrass, and folk music with deep roots in the mountains and swamps of America's rural South. The artists included The Stanley Brothers (just a few months before Carter Stanley's death), Roscoe Holcomb, The New Lost City Ramblers, Cyp Landreneau's Cajun Band, and Cousin Emmy. Together, they offer a fascinating glimpse of early American music played with heart and soul. All the artists were still in peak form and gave European audiences their first taste of this side of American traditional music.
