Blues, Blues, Hoodoo Halloween

Blues Blues Hoodoo, HaloweenA treatise could be written about the cultural meanings of Hoodoo and Voodoo in Blues lyrics and indeed Catherine Yronwode’s “HOODOO IN THEORY AND PRACTICE.

An Introduction to African-American Rootwork “is a highly recommended read.

She says “Hoodoo consists of a large body of African folkloric practices and beliefs with a considerable admixture of American Indian botanical knowledge and European folklore. Although most of its adherents are black, contrary to popular opinion, it has always been practiced by both whites and blacks in America.

Other regionally popular names for hoodoo in the black community include "conjuration," "conjure," "witchcraft," "rootwork," and "tricking." The first three are simply English words; the fourth is recognition of the pre-eminence that dried roots play in the making of charms and the casting of spells and the fifth is a special meaning for a common English word.

This CD represents a cross section of some of the finest tracks produced. In the future we hope to bring you more but for now we hope that this CD makes your Halloween listening a spooky pleasure!

New releases on the 8,000 series:

This ever popular series spotlights the many masters of the early Country Music genre known to many as Old Timey music.

Georgia Yellow HammersWe have been working with Tony Russell, Harry Bolick and others to expand the series and we are delighted to present the first two volumes in a series of four of The Georgia Yellowhammers "Bill Chitwood and Bud Landress, with their friends Phil Reeve, Ernest Moody and Clyde Evans, and associates such as Andrew and Jim Baxter, the Harper brothers, Gus Boaz, Lawrence Neal and others, would represent and promote the musical culture of their region for most of a decade. Thanks to them, Gordon County, Georgia, has come to be held in high regard by lovers of old-time Southern music.

Today we can see it as a prism, its facets reflecting the different forms of Southern music: old-time fiddling, quartet singing, stringband ensembles, rustic comedy, yodelling, blues."

Georgia Yellow HammersAided by this collection (and the music of the Baxters, available elsewhere on Document), we can hold a magnifying glass over a map of Gordon County, so that towns and communities leap into large-print life.

We see the streets of Calhoun and Resaca and Sugar Valley, hear the rattle of wagon wheels and the distant whistle of the railroad train, the massed voices from the singing convention in Calhoun’s City Auditorium, the strains of contesting fiddlers at the Courthouse, of the Baxters playing for picnickers at Dew’s Pond, and of Bill and Bud and their cronies serenading the townsfolk in Gentlemen’s Park.
