VARIOUS – THE BRISTOL SESSIONS 1927-28 – WE SHALL ALL BE REUNITED – BEAR FAMILY CD
‘We Shall All Be Reunited’ showcases on a mid-price single-CD 26 memorable and varied recordings from the late 1920s Bristol sessions by a range of Appalachian musicians.
The recordings were painstakingly remastered in 2020 by sound engineer Marcus Heumann.
The album features an evocative 44-page insert booklet designed by Bear Family art director Mychael Gerstenberger.
New liner notes written by Ted Olson in which the 1927 sessions are reassessed based on recent scholarly research and discussion.
The liner notes explore “the rest of the story”- the related cultural occurrences all-too-often ignored or marginalized.
This CD continues the series of Bear Family’s mid-priced releases exploring East Tennessee’s influential 1920s-era location recording sessions.
Follow-up album to the Independent Music Award-winning 2019 single-CD ‘Tell It To Me: Revisiting The Johnson City Sessions, 1928-1929’ ( (BCD17591).
