A rich 2 disc seam of American musical history, presented with a gorgeous booklet containing liner notes, photographs and essays on the phenomenon of medicine show music. May seem like a minority interest item, but if you like early blues or bluegrass there is plenty here for you to enjoy. There is even a version (the original?) of Tell it to me, the song done so well by Old Crow Medicine show. I have given it 4 stars out of 5 only because of the price. JSP records knock out well remastered 4 disc sets of this kind of stuff for half the price (though their liner notes are not is this league).
