CD Reviews

Charles Wilder | Dover, NH United States | 09/20/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Cliff at this stage of his career was very much of the "Jimmie Rodgers" school. Like Gene autry he had a better singing voice and Cliff was a better musician than Gene or Jimmie. Jimmie is much more historically important for the genre but Cliff does it as well as any of the blue yodellers. And he is certainly the father of the Country/Bluegrass dobro! No mean accomplishment! All that said this CD stands on it's own as just a great listen. Just good old country blues at it's best!!"
Amazing old hillbilly blues!

"Well, the title of this album pretty much says it all... but I'll add my two bits as well. Of the same breed and era as bluesy country artists such as Jimmie Rodgers and Jimmie Davis , Carlisle was by far a superior musician. His flashy guitar work is reminiscent of Tampa Red, and many of these tracks are quite strikingly bluesy and raw. Fun stuff!! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED."
