    Liner Note Author: Chuck Young.
    A decent overview of "The First Family of Country Music," filled with excellent examples of why the Carter Family was so influential. Old-timey classics like "Can the Circle Be Unbroken" and "Wildwood Flower" are represented as familiar favorites, but "Black Jack David" stands out as a showcase of both Maybelle Carter's pervasive guitar picking and the family's haunting vocal harmonies, so much so that Harry Smith selected it to be included it on his Anthology of American Folk Music, Vol. 4. The recording is beautifully dotted with analog pops from the original masters, but the packaging is woefully lacking detail regarding the tracks and recording dates. ~ Zac Johnson
