A strong, nicely selected anthology of old-time songs and tunes from Rounder Records extensive catalog. The 21 track collection begins and ends nicely with two fine songs by Ola Belle Reed (WAYFARING PILGRIM and MY EPITAPH). There are really no weak cuts on this well-sequenced disc that also includes songs by Bascom Lunsford, Mike Seeger with Etta Baker, Buddy Thomas, Connie & Babe (CRUEL WILLIE), Blue Sky Boys, Doc Watson, George Pegram and Dirk Powell with Tim O’Brien. A fine sampler, and a very listenable album as well.
