Mac Wiseman On Susan’s Floor – Collector’s Box Set


4-CD Box Set, LP-size with 60-page hardcover book. 114 tracks. Plying time 303:36 minutes. 

Mac Wiseman retrospective, including his ultra-rare recordings for Dot, Rural Rhythm, MGM, RCA, Churchill, and his own Wise Records! Backing musicians include the Osborne Brothers and Bluegrass stalwarts like Josh Graves … all in top form! Photos from Mac Wiseman himself, photographer Les Leverett and a detailed interview bring this amazing period of Bluegrass history to life!

As a postscript this box also includes Mac Wisman’s recordings for Churchill Records between 1977 and 1979, featuring his hit single of My Blue Heaven with big band leader Woody Herman, as well as some of the most challenging songs he ever recorded.

Today, Mac Wiseman is one of the few survivors from the early days of bluegrass. He connects the music to the folk and parlor songs that preceded it, and sings with the same unaffected sincerity. That’s why so many generations know him as THE VOICE WITH A HEART.

In addition, this exclusive set includes 114 recordings, plus an extensive hardcover book with an essay by Colin Escott that includes interviews with Mac Wiseman, as well as a complete discography and many previously unpublished photos.
