CAT No: MR036

RELEASED BY: Mississippi Records

The semi-legal/semi-bootleg label Mississippi Records released this collection from raconteur and one-man-band troubadour Abner Jay. Songs such as “Cocaine” and “Vietnam” are equal parts protest folk, country-blues ballads, and outsider treatises. Jay sings his hard-times tales with deep soul and the haunted lilt inherent to men of vision. The songs are all stomped out by Jay and Jay alone—on electric banjo, harmonica, and bass drum—and illuminate both the artist’s pure talent and his strikingly idiosyncratic aesthetic. THE TRUE STORY OF is about as fine a collection as one could hope for from this nearly forgotten American oddity.
