Henry Flynt - Back Porch Hillbilly Blues Vol. 1 & 2 (Locust Music, 2002)...

Like a hidden relic from the far side of the Harry Smith catalog, these early 1960s recordings are a splendid collection of High lonesome hillbilly fiddle and ukulele instrumentals that are surely Henry Flynt's most articulated statements to date of his honest to god, true to life affinity and love for that dry earth choogaloo upper mountain lower boogaloo foot stomping folk music. Standouts include the acid fried 13th Floor Elevators-ish 'Sky Turned Red' and the 15 plus minute lazy zen epic hum and strum album closer, 'Blue Sky, Highway and Tyme'. No doubt, this is Appalachian bruit driving music bar none.



  1. Holy crap, this is incredible! I admit, I was sloppy reading the description and though it was some sort of field recordings, or a collection of old bluegrass, so the sheer strangeness of it came as a shock, and may account for my over-reaction, but damn, this is a great combination of artsiness, psychedelia, and bluegrass! Thanks much for this post.
