Bottlenecks & Rednecks
The liner notes (included below) seem to be misleading. Although, the text seems to indicate that the collection is a sampling of Hawaiian steel guitar tunes from 1900 to the WWII era, it is actually a collection that only spans the 30's and 40's.
Regardless of the liner notes' inconsistency, this is still a representative compilation of the musical style that influenced every facet of American music- folk, ethnic, or pop tunes. This album was re-issued by Rounder Records on CD in 2000.
