Great old time music!

"This is a great CD that will appeal to any mandoln players out there as well as fans of old time music and jug bands. The selections provided are varied, a little bit of everything from blues to classical. It's good to hear these songs on CD, instead of those old, hard to get and scratchy 78's. One of the most entertaining albums I have bought all year."
A mixed bag of great & not so great tracks

"This Rounder CD which, I think, was originally issued on LP, apparently was never really revised or remastered since the days of LP. Most of the material is decent but there are quite a few great pre-war mandolin performances that are far stronger that are not issued on this set, such as "Mandolin King Rag" by Walker's Corbin Ramblers or any side by the Birmingham Jug Band. To make matters worst, the sound quality on several of the sides is pretty bad, considering that there have to be better copies around in the hands of collectors."
