The third of four volumes featuring the complete recorded works of the hillbilly recording artist, Roy Harvey. The 4 volume set follows Harvey's recording career over a five year period from his first recordings in New York in September 1926 to his last recording session in Atlanta, October 1931 and includes some of the finest hillbilly recordings of the era. In May 1929 Roy Harvey was back recording alongside Charlie Poole, pianist Lucy Terry and fiddlers Odell Smith and Lonnie Austin. With Roy as vocalist they recorded the hillbilly sides "San Antonio" and "What Is A Home Without Babies". In October of that same year Roy recorded for the final time with yodeller Earl Shirkey and at the same session he recorded alongside the Weaver Brothers. The success of the Harvey-Copeland guitar duets (Volume 2) recorded in 1929 encouraged Columbia to summon the two guitarists back to the studio in April 1930 to cut three sides, only two of which were issued, "Back To The Blue Ridge" was preserved as a test-pressing. By the end of 1930 Roy Harvey was now recording with fellow West Virginian Jess Johnston who was a very fine fiddle player and remarkable guitarist as displayed on "Jefferson Street Rag" and "Guitar Rag". These final two tracks and the Harvey-Copeland duets are amongst the finest examples of country guitar recordings. Includes informative booklet notes by Tony Russell and full discographical details.
