Video Title:
Dock Boggs - "Pretty Polly" [Official Audio]
Description:
Listen to the official audio of Dock Boggs' "Pretty Polly" from the 1998 album 'His Folkways Years, 1963-1968' on Smithsonian Folkways. 'His Folkways Years, 1963-1968' is available on 2xCD box set and digital. Stream/download/purchase: Smithsonian Folkways: https://folkways.si.edu/dock-boggs/his-folkways-years-1963-1968/american-folk-old-time/music/album/smithsonian Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/album/4WMxXEUDqIGwWhCltLc0sM?si=xpNwNnBxSvmmtCWAAeVNFQ Dock Boggs recorded only 12 songs in the 1920s, but his raw, powerful singing and distinctive banjo-playing caused Harry Smith to include him in his Anthology of American Folk Music (SFW 40090) and Mike Seeger to search for him in the hills of Kentucky in 1963. A new series of recording sessions captured the 50 blues, instrumentals, regional and religious songs included in this two-CD set. Originally released to high acclaim on three Folkways Records LPs in the 1960s, they have influenced musicians ever since. Extensive notes by Mike Seeger and Barry O'Connell.
