ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“It Sounds So Sweet: Jug Band Music For Ukulele” serves up twenty classic songs from the early years of recording performed on vintage and modern instruments; including ukuleles, jug, washboard, fiddles, banjo-guitar, mandolin-banjo and more. You’ll hear songs from the classic bands like the Memphis Jug Band, Earl McDonald’s Original Louisville Jug Band, The Hokum Boys, and the Mississippi Sheiks among many others.

Uncle Hazbin's Ephemeral Flea Stompers - Mark Nelson, Tim Crosby and the elusive Uncle Hazbin himself - transport you back to the day when jug bands played on every street corner and a good cigar cost a nickle.

In the spirit of jug bands everywhere, we have not limited this collection solely to recreations of early jug band recordings – although you’ll find plenty of those. Instead, I have tried to track down the sources for songs that have became part of the jug band revival. Some come from early jazz and hokum bands, others from the repertoire of blues singers or the musical hall stage. There are even a couple songs from old time Appalachian and early country artists.

And you’ll find rarities like the complete 1919 version of “Blues My Naughty Sweetie Give to Me,” and the long lost introduction to “Coney Island Roundelay.”

If you like to have a good time, you'll love "It Sounds So Sweet: Jug Band Music for Ukulele."
