  • DISC 1.THE BIG BANG: At the height of the Roaring Twenties, music scouts armed with cutting-edge recording technology set out across America to capture the unsung voices of everyday folk. This is the Big Bang of modern popular music--the first time America hears itself. BLOOD & SOIL: America's poor--cotton field slaves, mine workers , sharecroppers--find freedom through music, creating gospel, protest songs, and Delta Blues. OUT OF THE MANY, THE ONE: Exotic cultures spanning America are captured on record for the first time--inventing new instruments and new cultural identities as disparate voices harmonize in a musical melting pot
  • DISC 2.THE AMERICAN EPIC SESSIONS: Jack White and T Bone Burnett produce an epic recording session using the only working 1920s recording device in existence in this tribute to the artists celebrated in the documentaries. Starring Alabama Shakes, the Americans, Ana Gabriel, Ashley Monroe, The Avett Brothers, Beck, Bettye Lavette, Bobby Ingano, Elton John, Frank Fairfield, Jerron Paxton, Los Lobos, Lost Bayou Ramblers, Nas, Pokey LaFarge, Raphael Saadig, Rhiannon Giddens, Steve Martin & Edie Brickell, Taj Mahal, Jack White, and Willie Nelson & Merle Haggard
