I love the songs of the Carter Family. The songs are simple and authentic. A good mix. I like the original recordings by the Carter Family. The scratchy sound of the records in some recordings makes it more authentic to my ears.
Today is my dad’s birthday. I listened to Will the Circle Be Unbroken from his record collection when I was in college. It is a beautiful album. The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band collaborated with many old-time country legends to record a few dozen country standards, and the results are wonderful. My dad had this record for a long time, and I am glad he left it laying around for me to find.
Happy birthday, Dad.
