"This is a compilation from 3 of his albums, from '71,'76, and '84. It is a great CD and perhaps the best single one you can get to introduce you to the incomperable Mr. Blake's talent over a period of time. I absolutely guarantee you will like this CD."
A sleeper.

"Rounder comes through again with great compilation. This one has one good number after another. Highly recommend."
Excellent collection, but missing some great tunes

"I was initially confused by this CD because the cover art/photo is identical to that used for an earlier Norman Blake album called "Nashville Blues." Some of the songs from that album are on "Slow Train Through Georgia" along with others from Norman's first two albums. Unfortunately, some of the best (in my opinion) material from these earlier albums has been omitted for this retrospective collection. You don't get the smokin' version of Charlie Monroe's "Bringing In the Georgia Mail" (with Tut Taylor tearin' it up on dobro) from Norman's first album "Back Home in Sulphur Spring" and you also don't get the hilarious old-time novelty number "My Name is Morgan (But It Ain't J.P.)" from the original "Nashville Blues" album. The Blake version of "My Name is Morgan" (done by various string bands over the years) does not appear to be available anywhere now except on old vinyl and cassette copies of "Nashville Blues". That said, "Slow Train Through Georgia" is still a great collection of tunes and definitely the place to start if you're new to Norman Blake, who is a national treasure in the pickin' arena."
