An absolute gem of old-time folk
Patricia Hennessy | USA | 02/20/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"With splended intrumental work, a perfectly-suited vocal style, and little unnecessary adornment, Norman Blake captures the heart of old-time folk music in the beautiful melodies of traditional North Georgia and further afield.
Already an accomplished session musician, Norman Blake launched his long and distinguished solo career with this treasure of an album. After nearly thirty years, Back Home in Sulphur Springs stands up beautifully to the test of time. Indeed, the record is arguably the equal of anything that Blake has put together since. Those new to Norman Blake would do well to start here; long-time fans who have yet to hear this album will be delighted to hear the record that started it all. A number of songs which have since become classics - Randall Collins, Crossing No. 9, Ginsing Sullivan, When The Fields Are White With Daisies - were first recorded here.

As is perhaps rare with an artist's first album, there is little that one would want to change about this gem. Back Home in Sulphur Springs is about as close to a perfect record as anything in my collection. Review by Rainbowcrow.
