Orthophonic Joy is a Real Joy

Orthophonic Joy: The 1927 Bristol Sessions RevisitedOne of the most exciting projects in recording has been released, Orthophonic Joy: The 1927 Bristol Sessions Revisited. Produced by multi-Grammy award winning Carl Jackson, this may be the best recording project of the year. Based on the music of the famed "Bristol Sessions" in 1927 where "Record Man" Ralph Peer created the "Big Bang of Country Music" when he brought his Victor Talking Machines equipment to Bristol, Tennessee/Virginia to record the music of the region. That was 88 years ago and is still significant. Johnny Cash once said that the Bristol Sessions are the single most important event in the history of country music. What Carl Jackson has done is to breathe new life into the Appalachian music of generations ago.
