Clarence Ashley (1895-1967) was a legendary singer and banjo player who helped introduce old time country music to audiences throughout the USA. He recorded for Columbia Records in 1929, was featured on Harry Smith's 'Anthology Of American Folk Music' in 1952, and toured the US in the 1960s. Jalopy's vinyl-only release was produced in 2016 from tapes he personally recorded in 1963 at Greenwich Village's Gerdes Folk City. John Cohen, founding member of The New Lost City Ramblers, wrote the liner notes and provided never-before-seen photographs of Ashley in Greenwich Village. A 16-page illustrated booklet includes additional notes by Peter K. Siegel and Eli Smith.
