Martin Bogan & Armstrong, 'the last of the old time black string bands,' reunited after some three decades, and were soon touring the world. Carl Martin played guitar and mandolin; Ted Bogan, sock-rhythm guitar, Howard Armstrong, fiddle and mandolin (with Howard's son Tom on 'doghouse bass'). They recorded three albums of infectiously exhuberant music, drawing from their enormous repertoire of blues, sentimental and popular songs (the latter mostly from the '20s, '30s and '40s). This CD collects all 19 tracks from their second (Martin, Bogan & Armstrong) and third (That Old Gang of Mine) albums, the latter of which was produced by Steve Goodman.
