The Carter Family – “Wildwood Flower”


The Carter Family were the first Country Music singing stars, and in fact they were among the very first recording artists, in any style. Their magnificent performance of the American classic, “Wildwood Flower” was captured at Victor Records’ Camden, New Jersey studio, on May 27, 1928. Originally penned in 1860 by Maud Irving and Joseph Philbrick Webster, the song has been covered by June Carter, Iris DeMent, Joan Baez, and too many others to list here. This clean MP3 from the original 78RPM vinyl is yours to enjoy.
