Seems somehow the song My Carolina Home from the LP has disappeared from my music program where I store all my music. But... I had transferred off the 78 of it have, so I`m just posting it. My 78 of this is in nearly mint condition, so I`d say the sound quality is as good or maybe even better than what was on the LP anyhow, plus we get one more bonus tune!

Here`s a pretty good LP on Clayton McMichen. If you know anything at all about him, you`ll know he was a member of the old string band, Gid Tanner & The Skillet Lickers. If you know a little more about him, you may know he played on some Jimmie Rodgers records and even wrote one of his most popular songs, Peach Pickin` Time In Georgia. What this LP deals with is more of what I`d call "just McMichen" recordings, that is records that had featured or soloed McMichen. He was literally on hundreds of 78`s from 1925 through 1939. I would even venture to say that he may have been on more 78`s than any other country artist (except maybe Vernon Dalhart) if you count all the records he recorded a sort of a studio artist. So, download and enjoy!
