"This is an astounding collection of classic jug
bands from the 20s and 30s, remarkably re-
mastered to near pristine order" - Victory Review
"Seventy years later these recordings sound lively
and full of joy" - Cover
"Breaks our hearts that we weren't there when
this music was going down for real
"

Everybody loves jug band music! It is universal in its appeal, at times raggy, at times stompin', and at other times hauntingly plaintive and evocative. The fascinating thing about jug band music is that it encompasses theater spectrum of early rural music styles and some from uptown too! This collection of classic recordings from the 1920s and 30s features many all-time best performances of early American traditional music.
