The fourth volume in Document's seven-part Fiddlin' John Carson chronology covers his recorded output from mid-March 1926 through early October 1927, beginning with the last side he ever cut as a solo act. A humorous ode to indolence, "Everybody Works But Father" would be revisited decades later by an elderly Groucho Marx in concert at Carnegie Hall. Carson 's performance is anchored by his peculiar stage presence, a mysterious force that enabled him to make so many records without ever seeming even remotely leached out.

To put it bluntly, most of the records were beat to hell and no effort whatsoever seems to have been made to clean them up. Some, like "Hop Light, Lady" and "The Old Frying Pan and the Old Camp Kettle" are so worn that the needle seems to have trouble negotiating the grooves. These old 78 rpm platters were cut during a period extending a little over eight months from.

Fiddlin' John Carson (March 23, 1868 – December 11, 1949) was an American old-time fiddler and singer who recorded what is widely considered to be the first country music song featuring vocals and lyrics. Carson was born in (or near) Fannin County, Georgia, and grew up on a farm there. His father worked as a section foreman for the W&A Railroad Company. In his teens, Carson learned to play the fiddle, using an old Stradivari-copy violin brought from Ireland in the early 18th century
