I'm the first and only person to review this! Unbelievable!!

The Woodstock Mountains collective recorded several albums:

Mud Acres: Music Among Friends (dates for this vary from 1971-74)
More Music From Mud Acres (1977)
Pretty Lucky (1978)
Back To Mud Acres (1981)

I discovered this fabulous music via a mix-tape made by musician friends for my parents, and then much later I acquired the compilation Woodstock Mountains: Music from Mud Acres.

A disparate and varied aggregate of musician friends, many of whom have some sort of 'old-timey' pedigree, and a good proportion of whom were actually NY city-based folk, they got together occasionally in Woodstock, at a location known as 'Mud Acres', for what one of them termed a 'party round a microphone'. The music is made for pure love, and I think it really shows. Broadly speaking it's country, but it's country done the re-fried hippy way, and I mean that in the best way possible: there are elements of blues, jazz, western swing, bluegrass, and all sorts in there, but it's all combined in the most natural and organic of ways.

There are some absolute classics on this recording, and they're mostly originals by the various participants. Opening with the excellent 'Bluegrass Boy', by John Herald, and kickin' serious maudlin country ass with Roly Salley's 'Killin' The Blues', there's a heart-rendingly beautiful version of 'Long Journey', by 'Doc' Watson (sung by the two ladies who were part of this gathering, and as covered more recently by Robert Plant & Alison Krauss), gently jazzy humour on 'Cold Front', all the way through to the very trad-folk banjo-picking of 'My Love Is But A Lassie Yet'.
