The Golden Age

Mrs CC randomly plucked Columbia Country Classics Volume 1 - The Golden Age from the Country shelves to accompany Saturday breakfast.
She also solved my conundrum as to what to feature today.

In case you are wondering the Golden Age appears to be from 1935 to 1953 as the 27 songs featured were recorded between these years.
You will all be familiar with most of the songs on the CD and will certainly recognize the 1st and 3rd songs featured below
The 2nd one is probably not as well known and is one of the many gospel songs penned by Hank Williams
It is Sunday after all.

The Carter Family -Can the Circle be Unbroken (Bye and Bye)

Molly O'Day & the Cumberland Mountain Folks - When God Comes and Gathers His Jewels

Roy Acuff & his Smokey Mountain Boys - Wabash Cannonball


  1. I had that whole series of Columbia Country Classics on cassette. Some amazing music on those.

  2. I seem to have this and volume 2 (on CD)

  3. Songs 1 & 3 are great classics and I enjoyed the fiddle on #2, CC. I'm looking forward to more in "The Golden Age" series.
