This is a wonderful 2-CD set that features no less than 50 songs & tunes as played by as many different groups and artists from Southwestern Virginia.Ê Both old time and Bluegrass music examples are well represented, and the list is quite impressive. Whoever selected the material did a masterful job and deserves real plauditsÑI have not found a weak or borderline cut on the set.Ê Some of the tracks are borrowed from record labels like Rebel, Heritage, Sugar Hill and Hay Holler, but many of the recordings come right from the musicians themselves and there are a lot of pieces here that we have never heard before, and the quality is excellent.Ê There are names familiar to Bluegrass fans, such as Blue Highway, Ralph Stanley, Sammy Shelor, Junior Sisk and the Lost & Found.Ê The old-time artists are too many to mention, but include the Dry Hill Draggers, Whitetop Mountaineers, Mac Traynham, Reed Island Ramblers, Erynn Marshall, Scott Freeman, New Harvest Boys, Buddy Pendleton, and Jerry Correll.Ê With a nice 20-page booklet of good song notes by Joe Wilson, this is a superb collection of some of the best rural music to be found today in any area.Ê It is a real pleasure to see it done so nicely.ÊÊÊ
