By request I’m post two old country recordings to help everyone get through the long weekend. The first week of the blog I think has gone very well and I’ve really enjoyed working on it. I hope this weekend I can move away from this template into something better/less standard looking.

First up is a track by Texas Gladden, from SouthWest Virginia. Gladden has the purest voice I have ever heard. Her voice holds you like your mother would, it is that comforting and that honest.

  • Texas Gladden - One Morning in May


  • The second track is by Blind Alfred Reed, a great fiddle player from West Virginia. Reed was heavily into union organizing and writing protest movement. This song is one of the better protest songs from the era.

  • Blind Alfred Reed - How Can A Poor Man Stand Such Times

You have any other good protest songs? The issues are almost timeless.6/03/2004 10:02:20 AM|||Anonymous|||Awesome man, thanks for these.

    I remember when dry goods were cheap as dirt.
