More Info:Greetings From Wawa is Old Crow Medicine Show’s first album. It was originally released in January 2000 and has been out of print for seven years. Includes the fan favorites “Gospel Plow”, “Cumberland Gap” and “Reuben’s Train”.
Greetings From Wawa, Old Crow’s first full-length album, was recorded over the course of a few weeks in September 1999, in a small farmhouse on Flatsprings Road just outside Elk Park, North Carolina. It captures the primitive sound of a young old-time string band in its brilliant infancy. With nearly 60 minutes of music, Wawa captures rasping fiddle lines, shocks of guitar and banjo, and clear, gripping vocals — in addition to yipping beagles, howling locomotives, and the crack of drill sergeant snares — all encompassed in a collection of traditional rural, American songs — the kind of tunes that blow into town, get drunk and leave in a hurry.
It all started a decade ago with a record called Greetings From Wawa, and a new band in town called Old Crow Medicine Show.
