On The Honky Tonk Highway With The Brother Boys - New Hillbilly Music
- Unit Price
Bear Family RecordsÂ® presents the Brother Boys, an Americana act from East
Tennessee founded in the late 1980s by Ed Snodderly and Eugene Wolf, still active these days. The individual style mix of classic country, folk, old-time, bluegrass, blues, rockabilly, gospel, and singer-songwriter pop stubbornly resists any pigeonholing and still sounds ahead of its time.
Described by the band itself as 'New Hillbilly Music,' the Brother Boys carry musical traditions from the last century into the modern day.
The album includes nearly all of the tracks from the 1988 debut album, a host of tracks from the two albums originally released on Sugar Hill, as well as eight unreleased live and radio recordings and selections from the 2021 comeback album.
Compiled and annotated by Appalachian music expert Ted Olson, the double album delivers 51 songs, extensive interviews and numerous photos, some published for the first time.
Marcus Heumann has sensitively remastered the recordings from the original sources.
