Product Description:

Includes liner notes by Ralph Rinzler.
Possessed of one of the truest, most haunting voices in bluegrass, Hazel Dickens is a true unsung hero of the genre. Her 1981 album, HARD HITTING SONGS FOR HARD HIT PEOPLE, is a perfect summation of not only Dickens's artistry, but also her social and political attitudes. Born and raised in Harlan County, Kentucky, Dickens experienced first-hand the hardships that many other performers can merely sing about. Her renditions of tunes such as "I'm Busted," "Aragon Mill," and "Old Calloused Hands" are imbued with a beauty that comes both from genuine musical talent and a deep knowledge of the stories within. As a lifelong advocate for working people, Dickens makes HARD HITTING SONGS as much a statement of intent as a brilliant country album. Essential and deeply moving.
