On the positive side of this 2-CD anthology is the fact that the buyer will get a lot of music, with 40 songs and tunes drawn from Rural RhythmÕs extensive back catalog of material recorded in the 1960sÑthe price is certainly a bargain. On the negative side of things, thereÕs no real theme here, and the collection is sort of a hodge-podge mixture of odds and ends rather than any real reflection of the ÒGolden Age of BluegrassÓ that the title implies. There are 8 cuts by Hylo Brown (not all his strongest efforts), 3 strong cuts by Red Smiley, and four pieces by J.E. Mainer which would fit better in an old-time collection. The remaining space on the two CDs features mostly average material by groups like Ernie & Mack, James Wall, Roy Ross, The Log Cabin Boys and Red White, though there are also a couple of tracks by Earl Taylor and one by Mac Martin. Some items of interest here, but not an essential record, even at the budget price
