Here is a very interesting and welcome re-issue package from the British JSP company that has brought us some fine old-time collections in the past few years. This 4-CD set contains 100 recordings --all taken from the Bluebird label, and documenting some groups that have been poorly represented on CD in the past. It is not all great music, but there are some very good cuts here. Among them are songs & tunes by 25 different bands or solo artists including J.H. Howell, Lester ' Pete' Bivins, Walter Couch & His Wilks Ramblers, Southern Melody Boys, Gwen Foster, Louisiana Lou and the Rouse Brothers. Some of the most interesting tracks are 6 by the Southern Melody Boys (Odus & Woodrow), eight by J.H. Howell's Carolina Hillbillies including a couple of nice harmonica pieces. Also a couple of neat blues by Jack Pierce (SOAP BOX BLUES and RABBIT BLUES), 3 lovely songs by the Hill Brothers & Willie Simmons with autoharp & guitar, and ORANGE BLOSSOM SPECIAL by its writer, the Rouse Brothers. Others represented are Grady & Hazel Cole, Roy Shaffer, the Blind Fiddler, Pete Pyle and Dewey & Gassie Bassett. The sound quality is good and there's a lot to take in here. As in other previous JSP sets, this is a real bargain at the low price of just $ 27.50 for the 4-CD set!
