"The songs on the CD are not really sung by the original singers. A disappointing buy. The music is barely tolerable. Fortunately I didn't pay much for it."

"i borrowed this cd from my dad a while back and taped some of the songs i liked at first, and excluded others for lack of patience. so while i haven't had the opportunity to thoroughly examine a few of the tracks on here, some of them i loved and discovered particular artists from. my standout picks include ERIC ANDERSEN - VIOLETS OF DAWN, ODETTA - JOHN HENRY, RICHARD AND MIMI FARINA - PACK UP YR SORROWS, JOSE FELICIANO - LA BAMBA, and PETE SEEGER - EAST VIRGINIA BLUES. some of the songs annoy me, particularly anything with joan baez (her voice drives me nuts!)... the song WALK RIGHT IN by THE ROOFTOP SINGERS is rather dated and whatnot as someone said elsewhere, but i like it anyway.
i recommend this set, but not all of it's good."

"I won't bill myself as a connoisseur of 60s folk compilations, but this one isn't half bad. The real stars are Doc Watson, Flatt & Scruggs, and Mississippi John Hurt whose version of "Candy Man" is unequaled in any other Hurt collection I've heard (and I now own four). Joan Baez, Odetta, and Pete Seeger are also in rare form here, and you're likely to enjoy cuts by lesser-known artists whose records casual folkies are unlikely to own. Unfortunately some songs that were popular in their day (e.g. "You Were on my Mind" and "Walk Right In") now sound awfully dated to those of us born after '65. A less important problem is that the styles represented on this CD are so wildly divergent that no matter how you arrange them, it's hard to find a sequence that really flows. All in all, I recommend buying this CD. If you already like some 60s folk music, you may be introduced you to other artists whose music you will enjoy."
