Subject: Looking for Hamper Mcbee Lp
From: GUEST,JamesB
Date: 29 Jun 04 - 12:00 AM

I found the Mudcat site via Yahoo, and hoped someone might be able to help me locate this LP.
It was recorded in 1978 with Rounder. The name of it was "Raw Mash:Songs and stories of Hamper Mcbee". We originally bought a copy from Hamper years ago and I have asked some of his family but noone seems to have a copy, If anyone here has a copy or the Lp they would not mind selling   or know where I can locate one it would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
James

I've got a copy of Hamper's album, James. My late business partner spent a couple of days testing a few fruit jars of the local product with him back around 1963 or 4. I'll have to talk with my wife about selling the record (we're both unreconstructed collectors and have never parted with any of the recordings in our collection), but even if she says "no" I can probably arrange to make a respectable copy of it for you.
    I'll get back to you by direct e-pistle.

I love that album. I love the fact that he sings 'Roger Esq', as I do, having heard it on the great Phil Tanner's recording. How and when did it get out to his neck of the woods. Hamper didn't have much connection with the folk scene so it's good to see that he is not forgotten. How is he doing nowadays? Anybody know? Is he still alive even? I'm so glad that somehow Rounder got him on record, God Bless 'em. Hamper's sense of fun and zest for life came leaping off the record, plus the impression that he'd sampled quite a few fruit jars at the time. Somebody please post news of Hamper McBee

Sandy sorry about that I made post under guest, My   knew Hamper and my uncle was in law enforcment back when Hamper was makining moonshine. I have heard sooo many stories about Hamper yet I personally never got to meet him.
My uncle caught him sleeping at his Moonshine still and   shaved half of Hampers mustach off, He said when Hamper woke up he just started cussing    saying "Julius you SOB!!!" I thought it was funny he knew exactly who had done it..
Anyways I have been lookig for several years , seems no one from his family even has a copy. If there is anyway you would be willing to sell or even a copy on cassette or cd would be better let me know how much you would need for it. I would love to have it.
thanks,

Burl,
Hamper was a moonshiner he had made moonshine for years, He made a moonshine still at the 1982 worlds fair for the TBI in Knoxville, TN. There was also a documentry on him called "Raw Mash" He had went to New York and was on the "Tom Snider morning show". he had a pretty full life. I was extremely surprised to find out people from all over knew him.

I have a copy of "Cumberland Moonshiner" dated 1964. Of course it's in my other home in Maryland and I won't be there for another three weeks. Don't recall the label or contents other than "The Brown Mountain Light". Like Sandy, I'm not ready to sell from my collection but could probably copy it for anyone interested.

I grew up in Monteagle Tn. where Hamper lived. I knew him preety
well. My sister and I were just talking the other day about the
time he got drunk and climbed the water tower in Monteagle and the
police couldn't make him come down. I was a young man at that time
and worked across the street at the Dairy Queen. I still remember
looking up and seeing him up there..That was about 1974 or 1975.
He worked at the Monteagle Silo Co from time to time , and that
is where I remember him from the most. My Father owned the Silo Co
and I worked there from time to time also. My father could tell
you some good stories about Hamper. He knew him real well.

Josh , did you know James Haney ? I grew up with him and he was good friend of mine and Hamper's ...

If any of his kin, or fans would like a cassette of it, Imight could make a copy. NOVA had a t.v. special, but I can,t find it. I know he is up ther laughing about all this fuss over him.   Hammer 318 east first street, Monroe,Michigan 48161

I am aware of 2 LPs by Hamper McBee (Prestige and Rounder), some tracks in anthology albums, and 2 documentary films.
The films were supposed to have been released on DVD, but
seem impossible to find - I've sent an inquiry to the company
and will report back.
There is also an unconfirmed report that a CD of McBee is due
to be issued this year.
I'll post any additional information I find.

Thanks for the heads up on the possible re-issue of the Prestige
LP (Prestige FL 14008 Hamper McBee - CUMBERLAND MOONSHINER ??1964).
Do you know who is doing it?
It would be a wonderful addition to the catalog, particularly hope
they also include previously unissued material from these 1962 recordings done by Guy Carawan.

Troy, thanks for the news re a possible release of Cumberland Moonshiner on CD. We lived in Sewanee for a couple of years in the mid-60s -- my brother and I went to Sewanee Public School, and my dad taught at the university -- and we bought the Cumberland Moonshiner LP at a local store. I recently looked through my old LPs, but I don't have it anymore. I've asked my brother to look through his old records to see if he has it, but no word from him yet. In any event, I hope the reissue on CD happens. Great LP.

Just received the CD "The Good Old Fashioned Way" this week, after first learning about it a couple of weeks ago. It's terrific. I remember a number of the same songs (different versions) from Cumberland Moonshiner.

By coincidence, I'm heading to Monteagle on Wednesday for a meeting and will drive over to Sewanee while I'm on the mountain. Looking forward to it.

Lee R.
