CARTER, ANITA - SONGBIRD (CD)


"Anita Carter is the great "lost" voice of Nashville. The Appalachian siren, who once heard, will break your heart and mend your soul. Daughter of the legendary Mother Maybelle Carter and sister to the exalted June Carter Cash, Anita sang, played (a mean upright bass) and recorded her entire life (solo, in duet and with The Carter Family). Featured here are rare and previously un-reissued sides and 45 only cuts from her mid-1960s and early 1970s tenures with RCA Victor and Columbia Records. Chill to the hauntingly prophetic "2001 (Ballad To The Future)", thrill to stunning duets with Waylon Jennings, Hank Snow and Johnny Cash or be blistered by the country-fuzz of "I Don't Need You Anymore" and the feisty snarl of "It's My Life (And I'll Live It)". Deluxe collector's edition remastered with love and care from the original master tapes including exclusive liner notes and rare photos. Underrated and under appreciated, Anita Carter possessed a voice you will simply never forget." (label info) 28 track CD, 20 pages full colour booklet
