"Beautiful and archaic music...How often do you get
to step into another world.
" - Musician Magazine
"The care and attention is obvious from the superb
presentation. Powerful, archaic, ebullient."
- Folk Roots

Compiled on this exciting release are some of the greatest recordings of Early American rural music ever made. This volume presents an array of all-time great traditional musicians/masters of early country fiddling, banjo & guitar playing, and singing. These recordings were captured at a period during the golden age of recording when traditional styles were at their peak of power and emotion. These classics have been painstakingly remastered from ultra-rare original recordings using state-of-the-art digital techniques. This volume has extensive notes and beautiful period photographs that work together with the music to communicate an exciting sense of discovery.
