Synopsis

Album Description
Almost 40 Years ago the New Lost City Ramblers began their campaign of appreciation for Southern string band music, performing traditional music in traditional ways. Their vision and talent helped broaden popular music styles. In this, their first new recording in over 20 years, they offer a fresh look at old-time, early bluegrass, and Cajun music played on a variety of acoustic instruments. A booklet by this historic trio contains essays, notes, discography, and photos. A lively blend of primarily Appalachian songs and tunes...full of fresh energy and joy. -Goldenseal

CD Reviews

NLCR sounding as their predecessors
old_time_music_nut | 12/31/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Their first recording together in over 20 years, this album is a grand tribute to some of the musical genres and playing styles that they may have overlooked in younger days. Mike Seeger's voice now sounds like the old timers he revered and learned from 40+ years ago. The cajun tunes are a welcome mix from the traditional early blugrass and old-time styles that NLCR are known for. Seeger, Cohen, and Schwarz have an inner sense of each others playing styles and a respect for their individual musical preferences that can be heard on this recording. A great collection from one of(if not THE) best old-time music bands."
