About

ABOUT THE BONUS TRACKS:
Every extant session tape from the August 1958 sessions for Songs Our Daddy Taught Us was reviewed for this reissue. Alternate takes of four of the songs – “Roving Gambler,” “Down In The Willow Garden,” “Barbara Allen,” and “Put My Little Shoes Away” – were selected as bonus tracks and are all, heretofore, unissued. Of particular note are rough early takes of “Down In The Willow Garden,” the first of which shows producer Archie Bleyer experimenting with incorporating electric instrumentation into the sessions. Bleyer ultimately thought the better of it and stayed true to the original concept of presenting the songs and performances in their purest form.
