JIMMIE DRIFTWOOD. Battle Of New Orleans. BACM CD 627

Classic recordings from the school teacher and folklorist whose songs became massive worldwide hits – including Battle Of New Orleans (Johnny Horton and, in the UK, Lonnie Donegan), Tennessee Stud (Eddy Arnold). Driftwood’s song writing catalogue eventually ran to over 6,000 songs, many with distant roots into early American folk tradition. The CD showcases Driftwood’s performing talents, both as a distinctive vocalist and as a talented multi-instrumentalist on a wide range of instruments including banjo and longbow (a curved wooden bow with a string attached to its ends) as well as guitar. Tasteful accompaniment from a group of top musicians on various sessions including Chet Atkins and John D. Loudermilk on guitar and the legendary Bob Moore on bass.
