Americana, also known as American roots music, is a mixture of genres that blend together into a distinctive roots-oriented sound. It's a fusion of folk, blues, jazz, country, rock and roll, bluegrass and even gospel at times. Americana finds the origin of its name in 1984, when a radio station in California started to call their mix of American roots music "Americana", but the genre goes back decades before that and knows many great names. Americana Collected compiles some of the best Americana artists, including Gene Clark, Townes van Zandt, John Prine, Bonnie Raitt, Chris Whitley, John Mellencamp and Band of Horses amongst others.
The brand new compilation album Americana Collected is part of the Collected compilation series, which is a collaboration between Universal Music and Music On Vinyl. These compilations bring together the biggest and best names of its genre, combined with forgotten hits and less discovered gems, giving the listener an experience of both nostalgia and uncovering new musical grounds at the same time.
Americana Collected is available as a limited edition of 2000 individually numbered copies on red coloured vinyl. This 2LP includes an insert with liner notes, photos and credits.
