4.0 out of 5 stars Dadgum your soul September 14, 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is a fine collection of songs by country brother acts from the 1930s. Practically all of the acts feature just two brothers playing and singing together (the exception is the Lone Star Cowboys, who have a third guy playing guitar). The CD feature three songs each by six different teams. Many of the songs here are classics that became better known when covered by later performers. The best known act here would be the Monroe Brothers, featuring Bill Monroe, the Father of Bluegrass. There is a lot of good music here. Fans of old time country music should really enjoy it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Selections from a Lost Era January 28, 2012

These are timeless songs and harmonies, recorded in a primitive format, which does not detract from their power.
They laid the foundation for mucch of the country, folk and rock that emerged in the decades to follow.
Listen to "Nashville Blues" by the Delmore Brothers, for example, an uptempo country blues that I'm sure people
like Doc Watson listened to when they were learning guitar.
The song about the inebriated rat and the sinking of the Titanic are hilarious and harrowing, in equal measures.
Great early insight on Bill Monroe, with these early songs he recorded with his brother, before his discovery
of bluegrass.
I listen to this CD more than just about any others that I own, so it's a high testament to just how great
these performances are.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great sampling of early blue grass music January 2, 2004

Format:Audio CD
This is a great look at music from the 30s with unique sounds. My favorite track is " Here to Get My Baby Out Of Jail" which has almost all of the elements of a perfectcountry song.
