(Various Artists) ÒSong of the MountainsÓ is a concert series based in Abingdon, Virginia that has been running weekly on some public television stations since 2005. The series has included over 200 bands, mostlyÑbut not exclusivelyÑ featuring musicians from Southwestern Virginia, North Carolina and east Tennessee. This 20-track CD is drawn from what must be an extensive library of songs and tunes in what is billed as a collection of ÒBluegrass, Old-Time, Celtic, Gospel, Country and AmericanaÓ live performances. While there are several really nice cuts here, overall the selection of material is a mixed bag, and the quality level of the talent varies greatly. In our estimation, less than half of the 20 songs and tunes are worthwhile listening. Among the notable pieces are those by Snyder Family. The Grascals, McPeak Brothers, Joe Mullins & the Radio Ramblers, The Primitive Quartet and Michael Reno Harrell, and Donna Ulisse, plus a really nice job by Doc Watson and Jeff Little on WHISKEY BEFORE BREAKFAST (Little plays a really neat country piano). NOTE : This CD has a corresponding DVD (SOTM-2011-DVD, $ 18.00) , but it only has 15 cuts.
