The Cedar Cultural Center says
This is Corpse Reviver's second album, and their first one to be released on vinyl (thanks to the good folks at Hymie's Records!). Their first CD, Volume One: I'll Be Rested When The Roll Is Called, was released in September of 2013 at the Cedar. They are still continuing to mine the music that is found on the Anthology of American Folk Music, and are including eleven more of some of our favorite songs on Volume Two: Dry Bones.

Corpse Reviver is a Twin Cities-based trio that pays homage to Harry Smith's Anthology of American Folk Music. First compiled and released in 1952 by Folkways Records, the Anthology offers a glimpse into the world of vernacular American music that was recorded in the 1920s and captured on rare 78 rpm records. Reissued on CD in 1996 and consisting of 84 tracks spread over six discs, the music runs the gamut of musical styles, and includes early blues and jug bands, old-time country, cowboy songs, Cajun tunes, fiddle breakdowns, and a wide range of sacred music.

Corpse Reviver (who takes their name from a mid 19th century "hair of the dog" cocktail from New Orleans) likes to play the old songs, but strives to put their own stamp on the music while maintaining respect for the older styles. They've been playing together for over six years, and have been holding down a bi-monthly Sunday afternoon residency at the 331 Club since the start of the band.
