Roots and Rhythms
Wednesday December 17th, 2014 with Lloyd Smiley
Native North America, vol. 1

Tonight, the show is dedicated to an excellent box set released by the great Light in the Attic Records. It's called "Native North America vol. 1: Aboriginal Folk, Rock, and Country 1966-1985". ------------------------------------------- If you haven't already, check it out: http://lightintheattic.net/releases/1332-native-north-america-vol-1-aboriginal-folk-rock-and-country-1966-1985 ------------------------------------------- We're only scratching the surface here, but upon initial listening, these are the songs that caught my ear. Consider the playlist my... 'best of set,' or just the most I could fit into a 1-hour show. I hope you enjoy them! You'll be hearing a lot more from this collection on future shows.

I think a lot of these were originally on CBC records.

Lispener, you're right. Many of them were indeed on CBC records originally, but since this collection was released by L.I.T.A., I attributed the Label credit to them. Thanks for listening!
