Ed Helton Singers


Now here's some great old time singing! I have no information of this group. Its safe to assume that they were probably from East TN, West NC, East WV or Southwest VA because this was recorded in Johnson City, TN on October 18, 1928. These are the only sides that they cut.

One thing I should note: Their version of My Old Cottage Home predates the Carter Family's recording of it by 2 and a half years.

Great stuff! ENJOY!
