"The Brothers Four were my favorite folk group of the 1960s. I have several records and tapes of their original music but this CD is better, if that's at all possible, than the originals. The sound is so deep it almost shocks you back into the '60s. The first song on the CD, Greenfields, is the one most often associated with this fantastic group, and it's done so well it stops you in your tracks. Shenandoah, Green Leaves of Summer, Scotch and Soda, Where Have All the Flowers Gone, and Lady Greensleeves are so mellow and smooth - completely familiar in every way. I don't remember them singing San Francisco Bay Blues (I have that song by Peter, Paul, and Mary and love it, but back then songs were often recorded by several different artists). The Brothers Four rendition of San Francisco Bay Blues is now one of my favorite songs. A wonderful wonderful CD. I loved their music on my scratchy little record player of 35 years ago but I love it more on a high-quality sound system of today. If you were once a Brothers Four fan and wonder where they are today - they can be found in this CD - and you'll feel young again, too!"
Sound as good as they did 30 years ago

"This is one of the few groups with all original members still performing. They still sound great (the material was apparently recorded in 1996 according to the liner notes). Although most of these were folk hits, most were made hits by other artists (They tend to choose a lot of songs with the word "green" in the title, don't they?). The Brothers Four interpretations are pleasant and well-done. If you like to sing along in the car, this will be a much-played CD. I don't think it's a 5-star classic, but it is a worthy addition to a folk collection and makes me hope I get a chance to see them in person."
The Brothers 4: Pillars of the Folk Movement

"The Brothers 4 were in the forefront of the folk movement in the 1960's and without them, I am not sure if it could have reached the height that it attained.This new compilation offers the best that this fantastic group could offer. Although many of the songs are re-recordings, they sound just as fresh and as good as the original recordings, though some rearrangements had been made here and there.The passing years have not dimmed the group's talent to interprete traditional folk songs. This album is a solid proof of that."
