Thread Name: The first song of the Carter Family
Subject: RE: Help: The first song of the Carter Family
Hi Stewie, No I understood that they only recorded four on the first day, but a total of six for that first 'session' even though it spanned two days. (Am I correct in assuming that or is my thinking totally warped? ;-)) Just think how it must have seemed to them at the time, probably thinking that this rube wanted to record them and they might make a dollar or two. Could hey have had any inkling that what they were doing would set standards in the world of what we now know as old time music and in the country field as well? How will some of the things WE do today affect future generations?
