John said he had been to the doctor, who said, "You gotta quit smoking those Camels". Eyeing the cigarette that John was about to place in his mouth, someone said "But John, you're still smoking", to which John replied, "Well, he didn't say nothin' about Pall Malls" - from Phil Ratcliffe's Biography of Mississippi John Hurt

Sara Carter home recordings
« on: January 16, 2017, 09:36:13 AM »
Hi all,
Once again while looking for one thing I found another thing. That 'thing' being a reference to home recordings made by Sara Carter and sent to Maybelle Carter as a Christmas gift in 1965. This then led to Sara and Maybelle recording 'An Historic Reunion'. See for more.

I'm a big fan of home recordings and a little digging found the below link which is a home recording of Sara Carter with Coy Bayes doing 'I'm Thinking Tonight of My Blue Eyes' and 'Little Moses'. It doesn't state whether it's the same home recordings which Sara sent to Maybelle but either way it's an interesting listen.

The sound quality is pretty rough and the transfer isn't the best but thought I'd share.

There are several more recordings here:

I've also found on youtube, a clip from the A.P. Carter Fold dedication in 1975, with Sara on guitar and Maybelle on autoharp playing "Happiest Days of All". It's a good, yet brief look at Sara's right hand strum.
That's all she wrote Mabel!
