"24 tracks recorded live in the late 50s/ early 60s, but sounding as fresh and fiery as if they had been performed yesterday. What these musicians (among them Lester Flatt, Earl Scruggs, Clarence Ashley, Doc Watson) do is truly amazing, the sound quality is very good, too. If you like the fiddle and the banjo, you will love this collection. My favourite songs on this collection are the haunting 'Train 45' by the New Lost City Ramblers and the 'Maggie Walker Blues' by Clarence and Doc, but there's lots more to thrill you."

"I am amazed at how well this stuff has stood up over time. This CD contains some of the best bluegrass I've ever heard, particularly the selections by Jim and Jesse. And half of this CD (the better half, actually) is not bluegrass but old-time mountain music. Some of the selections by Ashley and Watson are haunting. Overall, for both vituosity and sheer energy, the music on this CD is head and shoulders above anything produced today."
