A country music Rosetta stone
Joe Sixpack -- Slipcue.com | ...in Middle America | 01/18/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Speaking of the Carter Family (and why wouldn't we be?), here is a lovely disc that a pal of theirs, guitarist/folklorist Lesley Riddle, made during the waning days of the '60s folk revival. Riddle was a local African-American performer and folklorist who shared (and sought out) many of the songs A.P. Carter added to the group's early repertoire in the 1930s when their career was at its zenith. You could almost say he was to the Carter Family what George Martin was to the Beatles, acting as a musical mentor to both A.P. and Sara Carter. This disc shows that Riddle shared their gift for delicate lyrical expression, and emotional resonance. This disc is getting harder to find, but is well worth the search."
