Yazoo has here another of its wonderful thematic anthologies, this one presenting 23 songs by both black and white rural artists of the 1920s and 30s, all in excellent sound. Here are some of the neat old recordings that will interest collectors of old-time music: THE OLD FASHIONED COTTAGE (Blind Alfred Reed), DARK HOLLER BLUES (Clarence Ashley), I TRULY UNDERSTAND (Shortbuckle Roark), LULU WALL (Bascom Lunsford), WHAT WILL I DO FOR MY MONEY’S ALL GONE (Eck Dunford & Hattie Stoneman), STOLEN LOVE (Red Fox Chasers), DARK EYES (Morris Family), plus powerful cuts by Cannon’s Jug Stompers, Blind Willie McTell, Lottie Kimbrough and Robert Wilkins, etc. There is also a second volume that is equally good (YAZOO-2031). Fine stuff. GOING TO GERMANY, LOST LOVER, SHORT LIFE OF TROUBLE, LITTLE MAGGIE, etc.
