Pioneering singer / banjo player Dock Boggs (b. 1898) got his start playing (while working) in the coal mines all over the poverty-stricken Appalachian region. His earliest recordings, a blend Appalachian old-time music and early blues, come from 1927-1929. During this time Boggs was fairly popular and able to make a living with his music, much to the dismay of his wife who, like many others at the time, considered secular music a sin. By 1930, however, the Great Depression had forced Boggs to pawn his banjo and go back to selling moonshine and working in the coal mines. This would have been the end of Boggs' career had he thankfully not been rediscovered by folk revivalist Mike Seeger in the 1960s and subsequently recorded some great records for Smithsonian Folkways. This record is comprised of some extremely rare alternate takes (recorded between 1927-1929) of some of his greatest songs. Tracks - Side A: 1. Lost Love Blues (alternate take #1) 2. Will Sweethearts Know Each Other There? (alternate take #1) 3. Old Rub Alcohol Blues (alternate take) Side B: 1. Lost Love Blues (alternate take #2) 2. Will Sweethearts Know Each Other There? (alternate take #2).
