The first 4 selections are from an out of print LP (Leader LED 2053, 1973, UK, thanks Bobb) entitled Virginia Reel.

Recently, in Greensboro, I chanced upon a near-mint copy of County-718, Ernest East and the Pine Ridge Boys. What a seminal album! Having long ago worn out my copy, this one got digitized immediately. Chris King at County Sales was kind enough to let me post these recordings here. Featured are Ernest East on fiddle (just one fiddle on these cuts, amazing), Scotty East - guitar and vocals, Mac Snow, guitar, and Gilmer Woodruff, banjo. Listening to June Apple makes you realize how much a part of the Camp Creek Boys sound Ernest was.
