This chapter analyzes old-time records that are framed as functional equivalents of live performances. Here recording artists extend their personal invitations to listeners, encouraging them to participate in records as immanent, eminently accessible events. Though they have never actually met, performers assume they are personally acquainted with their listeners through their common acquaintance with Southern folk music.

Keywords:   old-time records, recording artists, record listeners, Southern folk music
