AMERICAN EPIC: The Collection gathers 100 of these original recordings from the 1920s and 1930s in one five-disc set, restored to unprecedented levels of sonic fidelity. For these releases, compiled by Director Bernard MacMahon, engineer Nicholas Bergh refined a transfer process using a mix of both modern and vintage equipment in order to extract the remarkable resolution from the records that is often missed. This ‘reverse engineering’ approach to the transfer process enabled the restoration team of Grammy Award-winning engineer Peter Henderson, Duke Erikson and Joel Tefteller to get the resulting audio closer to the original performance than ever before.
This is not “remastering,” in the normal sense, but something closer to fine art restoration. The intent is not for people to marvel at the antiquity of these discs, but rather to experience them as vital, immediate performances that speak to us as directly as they did on the day they were recorded—not simply great art for their time, but great art for all times. It includes a 100-page book filled with stunning unpublished photographs, quotes from the artists, their friends and families, lyrics for every song, essays and recording notes. Among the artists included are Mississippi John Hurt, The Carter Family, Charley Patton, Jimmie Rodgers, Lydia Mendoza, Nelstone’s Hawaiians, Big Chief Henry’s String Band, Robert Johnson and many others.

Subject: Re: [ARSCLIST] American Epic PBS Documentary
Leroy: It has never been FULLY released. It is a 3 21/2 hour film in three partts (2 one hour each and one 90). The film festival showing were only various parts. The PBS series will show over 3 weeks. The " AE Sessions " is a separate 2 hour show where a group of modern performers (Willie and Merle, Alabama Shakes and even Elton John. record songs on the last remaining weight driven disc recorder.
I've see the whole thing in prep of a review and it certainly is worth watching. I was able to convince the Producers and Directors to come to the ARSC Conference (ARSC members like Dic Spottswood are in the doc) and unless PBS needs them elsewhere, they are coming. The 5 CD set is coming in June in a deluxe box and the book is already out (and I listened to the auidiobook version last week).
Sorry you aren't coming to SA this year. We are close to you!

Maybe discussed when it was released about a year ago… just got to my neck of the woods… looks like it's worth watching.
