Manufacturer Description

Wanna hear the real snake oil salesmen? Before motion pictures, before radio, the traveling Medicine Shows brought entertainment to middle America in the form of pitch doctors hawking elixirs, backed by a host of singers, comedians, dancers, banjo pickers, blues shouters and fiddlers. While the Medicine Show died out by the mid-20th century, a number of these wandering minstrels made it onto record, and this profusely illustrated and annotated set brings you 48 of their long-forgotten sides. Includes The Spasm Daddy Stovepipe & Mississippi Sarah; Gonna Tip Out Tonight Pink Anderson & Simmie Dooley; Tanner's Boarding House Gid Tanner & Riley Puckett; Adam and Eve in the Garden Bogus Ben Covington; The Gypsy Emmett Miller & His Georgia Crackers; Atlanta Strut Blind Sammie; Go Along Mule Uncle Dave Macon & His Fruit Jar Drinkers, and more from J.E. Mainer & His Mountaineers, Shorty Godwin, Banjo Joe, Beans Hambone & El Morrow, Fiddlin' John Carson and other scalawags!
