ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
When a large number of viewers expressed interest in the YouTube posting of Jonathan Guyot Smith's vintage recording of "Beautiful Dreamer," he returned to the recording studio to complete an album of songs by Stephen Foster, the "Father of American Popular Music." Included are several rare songs never previously recorded by anyone. Foster, the first composer named to the Hall of Fame of Great Americans, wrote the most famous popular songs of the 1850s - two of which are now official U.S. state songs. Stamps and coins have carried his likeness, and there are parks, public schools, and memorials bearing his name. He was the first American to prominently devote full-time to composing pop music, and his songs have been sung for over 150 years.

In the early 1980s, Smith taught the only college course then in existence which dealt exclusively with the life and times of Stephen Foster. He now returns to perform the Foster songs once more - not as they might be sung on the concert stage, but as families of the 1850s and 1860s might have sung them, standing around the family piano in the parlor.
