Thirty-Year Retrospective Collection

These tunes, which appear on O’Connor’s two-CD “Thirty-Year Retrospective” release, represent every stage of his remarkable career and celebrate the ever-evolving legacy and heritage of American music.


From the Thirty-Year Retrospective album notes; “I began to choose and arrange some of the best tunes of my 30-year recording career. As I worked, it all came flooding back. The places, the people, the feelings. Tunes from my  childhood... ”Pickin’ in the Wind,” the first tune I ever wrote...material from my Rounder and early Warner Bros. recordings...The Championship Years, New Nashville Cats, Heroes, Strength in Numbers, the Appalachia projects for Sony Classical. It was all there. A musical biography...started out as a retrospective of my career, during the process it became more. As I listen now, I realize that these recordings stand as a testament to the living, breathing, ever-evolving heritage of American music. As I watch these and other young players rise, I know it couldn’t be in better hands.”


Original music printed from the composer’s manuscripts.
