5.0 out of 5 stars "the way music & life was meant to be" March 11, 2003
This bluegrass album has some real gems, many have not seen the light of day for more than 30 years. Thanks to the success of "O Brother Where Art Thou", fans of Mountain-Music can enjoy songs from the past and the artist that were never given the recognition they deserved. The Rounder Heritage Series opens the door and the insight to some of the earliest selections and the originality that prevailed. Much of what you hear on this CD began as entertainment for themselves. After a hard days work in the fields, early Americans would sit on the front porch and take up their banjos, guitars and fiddles as a stress-buster for the family and neighbors. Finally, an album of cross-section music that's been on the horizon for decades. If I were going to recommend an album in the genre of Bluegrass, this would be the one. A bargain value of 28 selections well over an hour of artists and musicians doing what comes naturally...music from the times and hearts of our early pioneers...pure Americana.

Over the past couple of years my interest in mountain music, the music that formed part of my parental heritage, has increased as a quick search of such entries in this space attest to. Those reviews have run the gamut from the famous, and important, work of the various Carter Family combinations (and generations) to the "discovery" by the folk revivalists of the 1960s of the likes of banjo player Roscoe Holcomb to the interest by urban folk artists of that period like the Greenbriar Boys and The New Lost City Ramblers. One of the driving forces of that simple, plain music is the banjo. Another is the fiddle. On this CD we get various combinations of both. To our benefit.

Previously, in reviewing another Rounder traditional music series CD (featuring fiddles) , in this space, I noted that I was also reviewing a tribute album celebrating the 10th Anniversary of Appleseed Records (2007), now a fixture in preserving folk and protest music. I mentioned there that certain record labels have gained a niche for themselves in music history by establishing, driving, or preserving certain traditions. That is the case here with Rounder Records who for over forty years has put together off-beat, but extremely valuable, compilations of traditional music from the shores of Cape Breton to Appalachia to Western America. This CD holds to that fine and honorably tradition.

For this CD there is also a very informative booklet (as is usual with Rounder products), also including plenty of discology-type information about each track. That leaves the final question of what is good here. This compilation, like the tradition fiddle CD is driven more by mood than anything else.
