Free e-Book of A Brief History of Country
I have brought my History of Country series under one roof, with a few edits, in an illustrated eBook (well, a booklet, really) in PDF format, titled A Brief History of Country.
Please feel free to pass it on in good conscience or to link to it on your website: while I assert my copyright for the text, the eBook is completely free. The more people read it and, I hope, gain enough of an understanding of the genre so that they will never call it “Country & Western” again, or say “yee haw, pardner”, the more they will appreciate the wealth of country.
And because everybody likes music, I am also posting a complete recording of the Grand Ole Opry radio show of 28 December 1940. It features Roy Acuff, Bill Monroe and the Bluegrass Boys, Paul Womack and the Gully Jumpers, Ford Rush and somebody called Brother Oswald. I obtained it on a site that had huge amounts of old radio shows; alas, I have lost the link.
