Joe Cormier
The Dances Down Home

A wonderful anthology of Joe's recordings spanning a 25 year period, this collection includes medleys from an LP titled The Dances Down Home as well as material from other previously unreleased sessions. This long play, 20 track CD is one of the finest productions in Mark Wilson's North American Traditions Series (for Rounder Records). The notes by Anselme Cormier are a delight to read and include rare early photos of Joe, his family and some of his musical aquaintences such as Angus Chisholm and Winston Fitzgerald.
