Reviewed on 4/3/2008...
If you dig eclectic mixes of music of the country vein, go ahead and spin this puppy. Willie, Lucinda, Rosanne/Johnny and the Jayhawks represent, and Junior Brown's "Little Rivi-Air Head" is tops. The disc's songs (20 of 'em) are sequenced perfectly for your enjoyment (and mine).

CD Reviews

How can you NOT buy this for such a low price?

"Whether your perspective on this CD is as an introduction to broader musical interests or a supplement to your current collection of Americana material, you simply can't pass up this bargain. I was already a fan of large amouts of bluegrass and alternative country, two genres intertwined with the "Americana" scene, so I knew several songs on this compilation already. However, it's a good listen in itself, and it sent me off to buy more good music I'd just discovered.

If you have any interest in any part of Americana, do not pass up this opportunity. It will definitely broaden your musical perspective."

"One would think that the success of the O Brother soundtrack and sold-out festivals such as Bonnaroo and Austin city Limits would tell the music and radio industries that the nation is ready for music with authenticity. Sadly, though, that hasn't seemed to be the case. To quote the Danny Barnes track on this album: "new country music ain't worth a dime, and the radio plays it all the time."

This is a solid collection of tunes spanning an arc from twangy country to soothing folk. The producers have done a nice job of mixing big-name artists like Willie Nelson and Rosanne Cash with newer singer-songwriters who deserve wider recognition such as Tift Merritt and Slaid Cleaves.

Pick up this bargain-priced CD, then go out and see these bands live when they come to your town."
