Q (8/95, p.145) - 4 Stars - Excellent - "...remains the most significant album of the early '60s American white blues boom....The instrumental interplay between Koerner and Ray's acoustic guitars and Glover's harmonica is never less than engrossing and often exhilarating..."Down Beat (p.73) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "In concert segments and interviews, the three musicians reveal themselves to be free spirits hip to the zeitgeist of the time."Down Beat (1/96, p.49) - 4.5 Stars - Good/Very Good - "...[Koerner and Ray] are gifted acoustic guitarists, creating an imposing lattice of embroidered scales and bends, and they bring personality and emotional honesty to their singing. Tony `Little Son' Glover informs his vocal and harmonica playing with a rare intelligence....fresh and vibrant music..."Living Blues (5-6/99, p.103) - "...The depth of country blues knowledge, feeling, and expression displayed by these young white Northerners is startling, surpassing much of the work of today's acoustic revivalists..."Sing Out! (8-10/95, p.139) - "...[Koerner, Ray & Glover] are remarkable in the instrumental and vocal skills they brought to a traditional music form that was not of their own culture, but which they had already made their own..."Mojo (Publisher) (p.67) - "[They] injected punk-style vim and humour into covering heroes Leadbelly and Sleepy John Estes, while firing up their own spirited homages."0.3840923

Rolling Stone (3/23/95, p.123) - 3.5 Stars - Very Good - "...documents the complex cross-pollination that routinely occurred among Memphis blues artists. This in-breeding gave the city a strong but shifting blues sound, rather than one that could be clearly distinguished from the Delta style or East Coast approaches..."Living Blues (9-10/94, pp.89-90) - "...an excellent introduction to the diverse music played by pre-war Memphis blues artists..."0.251906

Rolling Stone (8/31/00, pp.69-73) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...Lavish....Smith was a master of the segue...[and] had a prophet's ear..."Entertainment Weekly (5/26/00, p.75) - "...Depression-era and reflects the old folkways' collapse. From Robert Johnson to the Carter Family to a pre-bluegrass Bill Monroe - Smith's ear for greatness was uncanny." - Rating: AQ (9/00, p.116) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...This final volume is based on his 'content analysis' of the post-1932 Depression period....all the songs are just plain bizarre and have recurring or interwoven themes....it's the CD gift of the season for those in the know."The Wire (1/01, p.34) - Included in Wire's "50 Records Of The Year" [2000].The Wire (5/00, p.58) - "...Decades of crackle and fuzz have become inextricable parts of these songs, ghost channels that seem to calling directly over time, a little ruptured window onto another world. We can literally hear the sound of a world slowly retreating into the murk of history..."CMJ (6/12/00, p.25) - "...Features 28 long-lost ballads and social music recorded between 1928 and 1940....sequenced as Smith originally intended..."No Depression (5-6/00, pp.100-1) - "...Smith's careful construction compels the listener to experience the album as a whole....this formidable work...is likely to be remembered as one of 2000's finest archival recordings."Mojo (Publisher) (8/00, p.94) - "...More lives have been touched by the music in these volumes than almost any other source.

Entertainment Weekly (p.69) - "[O]ld-time country music, early blues, and gospel....The recordings -- of varying brilliance -- are grail-like rarities."Living Blues (p.76) - "House was the greatest of all the 'deep' Delta singers, and this was his greatest recording session. The guitar work is crisp, with his usual unerring rhythmic control, and his voice is magnificent."No Depression (p.100) - "There are fetching country blues tracks.....It's all put together with enthusiasm and tongue-in-cheek ribbing of the collecting bug."Mojo (Publisher) (p.110) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[A] glittering parade of mountain stringbands and sanctified preachers, fiddle and harmonica tunes, banjo songs and guitar blues..."0.1679373
