Vinyl LP pressing. Pioneering Southwest Virginian collective, The Carter Family, were one of the very first groups to be captured on disc and are now recognised as 'The First Family of Country Music'.With rich vocal harmonies and innovative musicianship, Sara Carter, husband A.P. and sister-in-law Maybelle, would shape future generations with their earthy mix of traditional folk, bluegrass, and Southern Gospel. This collection, pressed on 140g black vinyl, presents some of their finest work and celebrates their undeniable importance. Their influential sound would shape the future of Americana and all aspects of music which sit under that umbrella including bluegrass, folk, gospel, rock and, of course, country. This 14-track LP includes famous songs such as Can The Circle Be Unbroken, I'm Thinking Tonight Of My Blue Eyes, Wabash Cannonball and their biggest seller Wildwood Flower. A fascinating portrait which celebrates The Carter Family's vital contribution to US culture.
