Attractively presented, and with tons of talent, this is the third installment of the landmark 3-LP set that came out some 30 years ago. Obviously, it cannot be faulted for not having the impact of the original collection: for one thing, superstar, super-session "event" type projects are becoming pretty much matter-of-fact these days. Alas, it does not have the quality of music, either, though there are some very nice moments. Showing best on the 28-track, 2-CD set are the Del McCoury Band (2 songs), Iris Dement, Doc Watson and Emmylou Harris. There are also nice cuts by Sam Bush (LONESOME RIVER), Vince Gill, and Alison Krauss (CATFISH JOHN). Jimmy Martin's two songs (HOLD WHATCHA GOT and SAVE IT SAVE IT) lack the punch and tightness usually found in Jimmy's performances, and much of the rest is OK but not really inspiring. Still, it's a collection that many will want to have, and it's priced very fairly. Some of the other artists who appear are Dwight Yoakum, Johnny Cash, Taj Mahal, Earl Scruggs, Willie Nelson, etc. A 12-page booklet of notes is included.
