The 1978 film, Raw Mash, and it's companion LP, made Hamper McBee an underground celebrity. As a media cult figure, you might say he blazed the Appalachian bad-boy trail later trod by Jesco White and Popcorn Sutton. Foul-mouthed but engaging, Hamper loved the attention that followed him most of the remaining twenty years of his life. Cumberland Moonshiner, originally released in 1964 by the Prestige label, was comprised of recordings of McBee made by folksinger and activist, Guy Carawan in 1962. Hamper was known as a rough-hewn but excellent ballad singer and he excels on that part of his repertoire as well as giving great performances of folk and old time country standards as well as original material such as Jasper Jail. Also included are two tracks of McBee's commentary about his exploits as a moonshiner.

All New Items on flyvintageandvinyl.com are Priced Below MSRP
and do not reflect our in-store prices and are not necessarily in stock at our physical store.
In fact, most items won’t be because we’re a small, family run business and don’t have space to stock nearly 500,000 new titles.

Separate Shopping Carts for New and Used Items
Because new items available on flyvintageandvinyl.com are fulfilled by our distributor and used items available on used.flyvintageandvinyl.com
(via the “Buy Used” button above) are fulfilled by us at our physical store, they require separate shopping carts and checkout procedures.
It’s a minor inconvenience, but we’ll try to make it worth your while with our selection, ultrasonic-cleaned used records and competitive prices.
Shipping within the U.S. is $5 for the first LP plus 50¢ for each additional LP via USPS Media Mail.

Orders containing both pre-orders and “Available to Order” items from flyvintageandvinyl.com will be shipped in one package when the pre-order title(s) is/are released.

International Orders, Box Sets and Larger Items
may incur an additional shipping fee and we’ll notify you by email before we process your order. Customs forms for international orders are marked as "Merchandise"
and we are not responsible for any additional customs fees when packages arrive at their destination country. Select items aren't allowed to be shipped outside the U.S.
