Considering the age of these recordings they are excellent quality and the music was right at the beginning of the American Folk Explosion. Like all compilation albums there will be tracks you love and others you'll wonder why they were included but it is still well worth the modest asking price. Gives a real taste of the early country folk scene in the US in the late 20's to 40's.

With 60 tracks it seems good value but it's a collection of cowboys yowling along with the coyotes. I dare say there's more bluegrass on the dark side of the moon. "Country, Bluegrass and Mountain Music" says the title with a matching picture on the front cover - even though the banjo is mostly hidden; somebody must have a conscience. But there is absolutely minimal class instrumental; I'm not even sure it comes within what most would expect of 'country'. In my opinion this is just an attempt to cash in on the buzz words 'bluegrass' and 'mountain'. I've played my copy once and cannot see me playing it again intentionally.

some of this c.d. was quite enjoyable, but the backings and some of the singing were a bit "dodgy". all in all i thought it was worth the money, i made one c.d. out of the pieces that i liked best. some of the songs surprised me as i had only heard modern versions of them and assumed they were recorded in the las twenty to thirty years rather than so long ago. interestin!

I have this on in the background now, as part of a bigger play list. I'm not sure if I could really stand the whole thing start to finish, as it's not really the sort of music you listen to for hours! Never the less, I like it- the songs are basic, the recordings are old, but the performers can sing, the music is nice and the voices are in tune.

Rubbish ? Why do they muck about with the original recordings. the quality of this recording, they call it remastering, is appaling.

I love this compilation. I listen to it in the car and I sing along, interspersing my bawlings with merry cries of "yee HAW" and "Gosh DURN"..... These discs are not for the sophisticate, this stuff is OLD but GOOD, from the days when a singing cowboy (trivia: Ken Maynard had a horse called Tarzan... sure was confusin' on the posters) was a believable figure. I think the oldest might be the Runaway Train by Vernon Dalhart (1929) and some of these tracks reveal their age by the thin sound (Jimmie Rodgers, the Singing Brakeman who died in '33 of the TB- his hit "TB Blues" isn't included here). But others from the 40s and 50s subvert the genre (Carson Robinson and his Pioneers "The West Ain't What It Used To Be").

Revel in the nostalgia of "So Round So Firm So Fully Packed" a string of advertising slogans from the period reworked in praise of the singers girlfriend (SSSHHHH it was a cigarette slogan and wouldn't be toasted these days!)

If you like thuh old days uf singin' on the range, an' down home hospitality, and good ol' country (as opposed to todays Nashville product) treat yourself to this trio of CDs. At the price you won't see better.

You-all come back now, yuh hear? *Phtttt*
