BA4 - A hardcover book with no dust jacket in as new condition that is still in shrinkwrap. Three compact discs featuring 102 original historic recordings from the 1890s. Led by internationally-famous evangelists Dwight Moody and Ira Sankey, the revival business of the late 19th century was an established juggernaut, complete with its own musical soundtrack. It met up with an infant recording industry in the 1890s still experiencing growing pains. Waxing the Gospel is a groundbreaking exploration of how tradition and technology merged in three distinct areas of recording: commercial, celebtrity, and vernacular. This beautifully-illustrated 408-page book includes a prologue by noted folklorist Joseph Hickerson, an extensive essay by Richard Martin, artist biographies, discographical information, historical notes and full transcripts of the recordings, and nearly four hours of music on three CDs. 9"x6.25", 408 pages. Satisfaction Guaranteed.
