The blues is a bantering conversation on, for the most part, the subjects of sex, love, anxiety, and travel, that was little different from the idle back-and-forth talk that might have been overheard in a 1930s barrelhouse. - Michael Taft, review of Barrelhouse Words by Stephen Calt

Moonshiner's Dance Part One--What's On the Other Side?
« on: January 23, 2006, 11:42:06 AM »
From the time that I first acquired the Anthology of American Folk Music in the late 60's I have been struck by the singular nature (in the AAFM collection at least) of "Moonshiner's Dance" Part One by Frank Cloutier & The Victoria Cafe Orchestra. I was always curious about the other side of the record--was it "Part Two?" And if so, what did it sound like?

After visiting the JuneBerry78s website and seeing that they have compiled a couple of CDs titled "Other Sides of Anthology of American Folk Music" and noticing that the flip side of "MD Part One" was not among the offerings, I e-mailed Norm at Juneberry78s and asked him if it was among their holdings. He replied that he had never heard it and did not know of anyone who had the original 78. He is as curious as I am about it.

So fellow fans of this particular aspect of human phenomena sometimes popularly referred to as American Roots Music, have any of you ever heard the other side of "MD Part One" or know if it is available?

Have you asked Joe Bussard? I bet he'd know, probably has a copy and might make you a tape... http://www.vintage78.com/siteCF/

Forgive me if you've already been down that track.

Rivers:

Thanks for the suggestion. I assumed (forgetting, of course, to "assume nothing") that the people at Juneberry78s would have exhausted all leads when interrogating the usual suspects in their search for the "Other Sides" in their AAFM complementary CD project. I'll send Joe and e-mail and let you know what I hear back.
