Extensive booklet note by Larry Tedder.

As with our two volume set, Jazz & Blues on Edison Records, there was such a treasure trove of Country Music Recordings left to us in the Unissued Thomas Edison Archive that one CD issue just couldn't contain it all. The recordings here cover the years 1923 through 1929, and are taken from both Diamond Disc and Lateral Cut Test Pressings. There are many original songs presented, and also some "cover" recordings of songs made famous by Jimmie Rodgers, such as Frankie Marvin performing Blue Yodel No. 1 and the vocal duo of Frank Luther and Carson Robison (under the pseudonym "The Jimson Brothers") with Waiting for a Train. This issue has been a long time in coming, and we do hope our efforts here have made it well worth the wait. Enjoy!!!
