Our CDs

These days there are lots of ways to get a little Flood in your life, all through the magic that is the Web.

78You can order complete CDs and have those little boxes of plastic delivered to your house by mail. Or you can download CDs, song by song, and save them in your computer, cutting the postal service right out of the equation.

But wait -- say you don't want an entire Flood CD. You can say that. Oh, you might break our hearts, but you can say that. In that case, you'll want to sample the tunes on the Flood CDs and then just pick and choose the specific tracks you want and have only those tunes downloaded.

Here are some ideas for flooding your ears...


Live, In Concert

We're excited about our first ever live, in concert album -- cleverly entitled "Live, In Concert" -- which you can order right here online for $14.95 (plus S&H).

CD 6

In many ways, this album has been a dream of ours for years. In fact, Joe Dobbs would have loved the fact that The Flood finally has a live CD. It was our late fiddlin' friend's favorite comment that the band he helped form 40+ years ago always sounded better at parties and concerts than it did in rehearsals and in studios. “It helps that everybody’s a ham,” Joe would say with a grin. This is the debut CD for Paul Martin who also did the editing and mixing magic that made this album possible!

Cleanup & Recovery

Hip BootsOn its fifth commercial CD, The 1937 Flood continues exploration of some favorite terrain -- jug band tunes, party music of the 1920s and '30s, re-inventions of classics from pop ballads to folk songs -- but also steps off in some new directions.

This is the first Flood CD to feature bassist/vocalist Randy Hamilton, and his influence can be heard in the tighter vocal harmonies with which Michelle Walker, Charlie Bowen and he are experimenting.

Also this CD finds long-time Floodster Doug Chaffin moving from bass to full-time soloist; on guitar and mandolin he has some sweet work on everything from ballads to jump tunes. The album is a celebration of the Flood's ever-evolving sound.

All the track were engineered and mixed by the incomparable Bud Carroll.

Our price $15.00 (plus shipping and handling)

Wade in the Water

Hip BootsThe 1937 Flood's first new release in nearly eight years, "Wade in the Water" was recorded in a single evening in August 2011 in the Huntington, West Virginia, studios of Live at Trackside.

Continuing The Flood's reputation as West Virginia's most eclectic string band, the disc features everything from jug band songs and blues to swing numbers and ballads to fiddle tunes and folk favorites.

All the track were engineered and mixed by the incomparable Bud Carroll.

Our price $15.00 (plus shipping and handling)

NOTE: The Flood also made its first DVD during this session. Click here to read all about it.


I'd Rather Be Flooded

cd3I'd Rather Be Flooded is the latest product of The Flood's finding its way to the studio, a disc full of surprises, from the band's first "live in concert" track to the introduction of the vocal stylings of Michelle Walker, from the the recording debut of Doug's bluesy guitar and lively mandolin and Chuck's mellow tenor guitar to the introductory of Joe's original composition, "Vandalia Waltz." Our Price: $14.95.


The 1937 Flood
Plays Up a Storm!

cd2Fast on the heels of the boys' 2002 debut album, The 1937 Flood Plays Up a Storm is this second CD from The Flood, a lively and engaging disc that allows the band to stretch out and show off its diversity. Recorded in a single day-long session in November 2002 in Charleston, West Virginia, the tracks were engineered and mixed by The Seventh Floodster, Buddha-patient producer George Walker. Our Price: $14.95.


The 1937 Flood: The Band,
Not the Natural Disaster

cd1Twenty-five years in the making, The Band, Not the Natural Disaster is the 2002 debut CD that started The Flood on a rollercoaster ride. Released on the Braxton Recordings label, the album was recorded in two sessions in Charleston, West Virginia, during the summer of 2001. The recordings were engineered and mixed by the incomparable Buddy Griffin. Our Price: $14.95


Hip Boots: The Flooded Basement Tapes

Hip BootsAs everybody's mother always said (usually with a pretty heavy sigh), if you want something Done Right, do it yourself.

Well, in our case, the real truth is that after more than three decades of making music, we just got flat-out tired of waiting for someone else to produce The 1937 Flood bootleg album, and (with a pretty heavy sigh) we decided that if it was going to happen, it looked like we'd have to make it so.

So... meet Hip Boots: The Flooded Basement Tapes. It's a collection of nearly two dozen cuts from various drop-in points during the 30-year-plus history of The Flood, a band deeply rooted in the foggy (some more foggy than others) years of The Hippy Culture.
