CD Reviews

D. B Pepper | Plainview, NY United States | 10/23/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is an excellent cd to purchase if you'd like to experience Darby & Tarlton, but don't want to pay 80 dollars for their 3 cd's which include their complete recordings. Songs like "Frankie Dean" (a version of "Frankie & Johnny"), "Lowe Bonnie" (in the "Henry Lee" family) and "On The Banks Of A Lonely River" are immortal testaments to American folk music. The guitar playing by both men is excellent, and the singing is better than that of just about any Old-Timey duo I can think of. If you like Grayson & Whitter, Burnett & Rutherford, or Frank Hutchison, buy this cd!"

"The music of Darby & Tarlton is by far something of the finest you can find in old time country music. - Why I only gave 4 stars? - Because of some of the best records are not on this CD. You may find it on Darby & Tarlton, Complete Recordings by Bear Family Records, Germany (BCD 15764 CI). It's a 3-CD box and an absolute 'must' for all slide/lapstyle guitar fans."
