Charlie Poole | You Ain't Talkin' to Me | CD Set

  • $ 49.99

Charlie Poole, groundbreaking banjoist/songwriter, is known as the –Robert Johnson of country music." With his banjo-fiddle-guitar trio, The North Carolina Ramblers, Poole wrote and recorded country music's first mega-hit single (–Don't Let Your Deal Go Down") and many other classic songs that gave birth to the music of both Bill Monroe and Hank Williams. This three-disc set chronicles the stompin' sides made for Columbia by Poole between 1925 and 1931. In addition, the package also includes performances by the early roots music players and singers who either influenced Charlie Poole or were influenced by him.
