Product Description
Product Details
Performer Notes
  • 2 LPs on 1 CD: DARLING COREY (1950)/GOOFING-OFF SUITE (1955).
  • Producer: Moses Asch.
  • Reissue producers: Anthony Seeger, Matt Walters.
  • Recorded in 1950. Includes liner notes by Alan Lomax, Pete Seeger & Anthony Seeger.
  • Combined on one CD in 1993 after decades of near-total obscurity, DARLING COREY and GOOFING-OFF SUITE were originally released by Folkways Records in the short-lived 10" LP format. 1950's DARLING COREY is one of Seeger's most purely musicological recordings, collecting a number of traditional Appalachian and Southern folk melodies and songs, played in the traditional style. The rollicking "Skillet Good and Greasy" and the wistful title track are standouts, as is the instrumental showcase "Four Banjo Pieces."
  • In contrast, 1955's GOOFING-OFF SUITE finds Seeger in a more progressive mood, creating world music decades before that term was invented by combining traditional guitar and banjo with themes from Bach, Beethoven, and the sort of Russian folk tunes that inspired Tchaikovsky. His acoustic variations on Bach's "Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring" are particularly impressive. Together, these two albums showcase Seeger's immense range.
Professional Reviews
