The Mainers (Wade and J.E.) were one of the most prolific and influential of the old-time groups to record in the mid and late 1930s, paving the way and supplying lots of material for early Bluegrass groups. This new CD is a fine starting point to get into their “sound”, (which actually was several sounds) from old-time fiddle band (SEVEN AND A HALF by fiddler J.E.), to solo with guitar like Jimmie Rodgers (Daddy John Love’s CURLY HEADED BABY) to the brother duet style (Wade & Zeke Morris). Although this album is billed as “Wade Mainer”, there’s plenty of J.E. and his fiddle here too. A very generous 28 tracks include such key songs as MAPLE ON THE HILL (a giant hit at the time), GREENBACK DOLLAR, NUMBER 111, CITY ON THE HILL, LIGHTS IN THE VALLEY, LONGEST TRAIN, and TAKE ME IN THE LIFE BOAT, as well as the wonderful NEW LOST TRAIN BLUES and ONE TO LOVE ME (with Clarence Todd & Ollie Bunn). An important collection.
