This is the fourth of six volumes featuring the complete recorded works of The Skillet Lickers. The 6 volume set covers some of the finest, and some of the rarest, hillbilly and string band recordings of what is often called the golden age of old-time music. By October 1929 the Skillet Lickers were back in the studio to record more tunes and sketches for Columbia. Their sketches continued to depict scenes drawn from life. "A Night In A Blind Tiger" tells of the aftermath of a fiddlers' contest, the losers uniting in an illicit watering-hole to complain that Clayton McMichen shouldn't have won. By the end of the 1920s record sales were beginning to decline and this was reflected in the sales performance of the Skillet Lickers' hillbilly recordings. The group continued to produce fine string band tunes but times were hard and the whole music industry was starting to feel the pinch. Includes informative booklet notes by Tony Russell with bibliography and full discographical details.
