Sam McGee, 1926 Sessions with Uncle Dave Macon (18 tracks)

I first heard Sam McGee in the early 1970s on the excellent Arhoolie album "Grand Dad of the Country Guitar Pickers" featuring 1969/1970 recordings and became fascinated by his style of picking.

Over the years, I've been collecting whatever I could find of this guitarist, solo, as guitarist for Uncle Dave Macon, and with his brother Kirk McGee and fiddler Arthur Smith.

Here are Sam McGee's earliest sides, both solo and with Uncle Dave Macon, recorded in New York, NY, April 1926.
