    Dirty Linen (4-5/00, p.93) - "...these CDs cull from remastered 78 r.p.m. records of rags, banjo songs, fiddle tunes, ballads, religious melodies, and, of course, the blues....this is a mighty series and required listening for anyone who thinks American music started with Elvis."
    Mojo (Publisher) (5/00, p.94) - "...A Jurassic Park of Americana, a fabulous landscape where giants of blues and early country music stride side by side..."
