  • $13.50


Obviously designed as a companion piece to Rounder’s “Mountain Journey” CD (see review ROU-0546), this compilation is not quite as musically satisfying, but still contains a number of fine tracks by good artists. Some highlights are James Bryan’s CHICKEN IN THE SNOW BANK, Dirk Powell’s HOP HIGH MY LULU GAL and WHEN SORROWS ENCOMPASS ME ROUND, Lynn Morris’ HELP ME CLIMB THAT MOUNTAIN, and other pieces by Corey Harris, Mac Benford, Dry Branch and Norman Blake.
