Happy Mother's Day 2011
Happy Mother's Day to Everyone! Since it's Mother's Day weekend, I thought I write a dispatch around the great Atlanta label Dust-To-Digital's recent release, Never A Pal Like Mother: Vintage Songs & Photographs of the One Who's Always True.
Included in the rare package are 40 recordings from 1927-1956 from esteemed 78-collector Joe Bussard. Sarah Bryan wrote the essay to this 96 page hardback book that includes two CDs.
In Rosanne Cash’s words “The songs in this collection wail, grieve, rock, celebrate, and worship Mother, and occasionally acknowledge her failings. As a whole, this music paints a rich and compelling portrait of a time that no longer exists.”
Much love to all the Mother's,
