We are thrilled to announce the release of a 2 CD soundtrack of music from the documentary—38 tracks of soulful, raucous music from the musicians who captured the ears and heart of Arhoolie songcatcher Chris Strachwitz. The gorgeous 10 x 5.5″ package includes a 32 page full-color book filled with pictures and notes written by Adam Machado and Mr. Chris, and a written introduction by the filmmakers.
Artists featured include Big Mama Thornton, Ry Cooder, Lightning Hopkins, Mance Lipscomb, the Treme Brass Band, Fred McDowell, Big Joe Williams, Flaco Jimenez, Clifton Chenier, Lydia Mendoza, Los Alegres de Terán, the Pine Leaf Boys, Los Cenzontles, Santiago Jimenez Jr., Michael Doucet of BeauSoleil, George Lewis, Country Joe McDonald, and many more!
Passionate, earthy music…does justice to Strachwitz’s amazing career and the multifaceted appeal of the vibrant music his company has shared with the world. —Roger Wood, Living Blues
