"Thank the Good Lord a great recording engineer caught this music and recorded it well. This CD has some of the deepest and richest acoustic sounds you'll ever hear. Far too many of the old Bluegrass greats have less than acceptable sound recordings. Lester Faltt's vocals on this CD are as smooth as sippin' whiskey and gives you the same warm felling inside. The sound engineering is so good on this CD, that while listening I've turned around thinking the dobro or autoharp, or banjo player was coming up behind me. This CD and Flatt and Scruggs' Live At Vanderbilt University recording are outstanding examples of Bluegrass musicianship - I can, without reservation ,recommend this CD to anyone who likes music."

"My Dad had this as an album in the 1960's and as silly youth we made fun of it ! 35 years later I purchased the CD. Like my father then, I am a little older and wiser now. I too love good music regardless of genre [I purchased a Jimi Hendrix CD along with this one ] . Flatt and Scruggs were the best at what they did regardless of of the genre. If you love to hear acoustic instruments played by masters this is the group to listen to. It is a CD that you can listen to straight through 12 tracks. You will be tapping your feet trying to sing along and attempting to clog dance even if you never knew how. Hey Dad- now my kids are making fun of my music er... OUR MUSIC !"

"Mother Maybelle Carter, a legend in country music history, joins bluegrass legends Flatt and Skruggs in a delightful collection of tunes originally recorded by the Carter Family. Lester Flatt does all of the vocals on this CD. I would have enjoyed hearing Maybelle's voice also, but there may have been an overriding reason why she chose to remain silent. Maybelle plays the autoharp on this one, rather than her usual guitar. Her playing meshes nicely with the playing of Flatt and Skruggs. On some of these tunes Earl Skruggs lays aside his famous banjo to play a guitar. All in all, this is a splendid listening experience for those who enjoy mountain music, and who are fans of the Carter Family, and Flatt and Skruggs."
