Synopsis

Amazon.com
Released in 1995 to commemorate Rounder Records' 25 years in business, Hills of Home is a terrific investment for anyone interested in exploring the label's myriad folk offerings. (Blues fans would be well-advised to check out Deep Blue, Hills's silver-anniversary blues twin.) Bargain-priced and boasting a wide range, this two-disc overview is elevated over standard label anthologies by superior sequencing and worthwhile liner notes. The Massachusetts-based imprint has been a stronghold for developing troubadours and stalwart mountain musicians as well as an outlet for classic reissue material. Indeed, everyone from instrumental hotshot Mark O'Connor to Woody Guthrie to acid folkies the Holy Modal Rounders to hill harmonizers the Louvin Brothers are represented here. --Steven Stolder

Excellent summary of Rounders clientele. From folk to country to Americana; this is quite a complementary overview of the label. It got me to seek out other CD's by some of the artists.
