Victor Talking Machine Company Sessions in Bristol, Tennessee
Excerpt: In a 1988 essay published in the book “Country: The Music and the Musicians,” music scholar Nolan Porterfield observed: "Music historians and others fond of dates and places have a special weakness for 'Bristol, August 1927.' As a sort of shorthand notation, it has come to signal the Big Bang of country music evolution."
