Fiddlin` Sam Long - Gennett 3255
Fiddlin` Sam Long Of The Ozarks - Gennett 3255
Sandy Land / Listen To The Mocking Bird
recorded January or February 1926 in Richmond, Indiana
Here is what seems to be a pretty rare disc. Sam Long was a fiddler from southwest Missouri that apparently got to make some records as a result of a fiddling contest won in Joplin, Missouri. This was about all the information I could find on him. My copy of this disc is not in the best condition, but the sound quality is pretty listenable. Sandy Land has been issued on CD, but as far as I know his Listen To The Mocking Bird has never been re-issued, which is the main reason I`ve posted it here. Happy listening!
