First album on Jalopy Records, released by the venue of the same name that’s located a short walk away from 50 Miles’ home base.  Edition of 500 red vinyl copies with liner notes insert, sounds great, very nicely done. 

“The Jalopy Theatre and School of Music proudly presents Pat Conte in the release of American Songs with Fiddle and Banjo, the debut album of the brand new label, Jalopy Records. Pat Conte, a longtime musician and collector of world folk music (producer of The Secret Museum of Mankind series on Yazoo Records) has put together fourteen tunes, specifically arranged for the fiddle and banjo. The record spans old-time, primitive blues and archaic songs to celebrate the harmonious and traditional pairing of these instruments in American music. … Conte has performed with dozens of bands, most notably The Otis Brothers, Major Contay and the Canebrake Rattlers and The Empire State String Ticklers.” – Jalopy.
