  • Critic Reviews
    Rolling Stone (p.75) - Ranked #4 in Rolling Stone's '10 Best Reissues Of 2011' -- "The 1927 recordings include the first ever by Jimmie Rodgers and the Carter Family -- history enough for one week."
    Record Collector (magazine) (p.85) - 5 stars out of 5 -- "[T]here are very few genuine 'must-have' collections, but this, like Harry Smith's ANTHOLOGY OF AMERICAN FOLK MUSIC, is definitely one of them."
    Uncut (magazine) (p.90) - 5 stars out of 5 -- "There are sacred and secular songs, traditional ballads, dance tunes and zesty instrumentals, sounds and styles that transcended their hillbilly roots by stirring in gospel, blues and folk influences."
