This is a pleasant, low key recording by a mother & daughter team residing in Vermont (though Ms. Mindel recorded in the 1970s in California with the group Any Old Time String band). With sparse but appropriate backing by a few guest pickers, they play a dozen songs & tunes from a variety of sources. These include SWEET CHARIOT, Kitty Wells' LONELY STREET, REMEMBER I FEEL LONESOME TOO, Mr. ENGINEER, CRAZY HEART, and the Carter Family's YOU TIED A LOVE KNOT IN MY HEART. Especially noteworthy are a respectable version of Blind Roosevelt Graves' masterpiece I'LL BE RESTED, and a very nice version of the Carlisles classic GONE HOME.
