About this Item

Not a book but a 12-inch, 33-1/3 rpm, "Long Play" (mono, monaural) vinyl record, RCA Victor LPM-2634, near-mint vinyl in a very-good-plus jacket. In fact, simply by standing up and performing his songs at the microphone, front and center with his guitar, The Singing Brakeman (1897-1933, tuberculosis) was the Father not merely of Country Music, but of much of what we now recognize as the basic performance style of blues, folk, and rock, as well. Features "In The Jailhouse Now No. 1" (Feb. 15, 1928, Camden, N.J.); "Blue Yodel No. 10" (Feb. 6, 1932, Dallas, Texas); "Nobody Knows But Me" (Nov. 25, 1929, Atlanta, Georgia); "Blue Yodel No. 11" (Nov. 25, 1929, Atlanta, Georgia), etc. Catalogs $80; here reduced from $32.
