I would say that Boogie-Woogie was the bad little boy of the rag family who wouldn't study. I heard crude beginnings of it in the back streets of New Orleans, in those early years following 1904, but they were really back streets... such music never got played in 'gilded palaces' - Roy Carew, from Giles Oakley's The Devil's Music, BBC

Jug Tracks website
« on: August 27, 2020, 04:39:11 PM »
I spent my summer in lockdown recording a set of jug band songs by matching the original arrangements as accurately as possible. I got especially drawn into some of the guitar interplay between Will Shade and Charlie Burse. I was also forced to raise my nose whistle game for a Whistler's Jug Band song.  :)

Anyway, I just posted these in a new website with a multi-track audio player so people can explore the arrangements themselves:

I hope to add more songs over time and create a good reference for studying early jug band recordings.

Very cool.... in fact amazing.  Love how you can explore the different tracks.  The pandemic bears fruit!  I'll go back and explore further.  Thanks for sharing your work.

Thanks everyone for the kind words! This motivated me to make a couple additions to the site: links to some tabs and notation I wrote up while recording (with varying levels of legibility and completeness), and a comments function to discuss the songs. I'm also planning to add another batch of songs by the end of the year.
