5.0 out of 5 stars My favorite of the "Clawhammer Banjo" albums May 20, 2005
Format:Audio CD
This record is the epitome of old-time banjo music. Every artist is top-notch and one of the best clawhammer banjo players in history. Volume two has a wider range of artists then volume one, which I like. I also like the song selection better.

This is a very accesible album and you don't have to be "obsessed" with old-time music to enjoy it. A lot of the songs are classics, and anyone with a love of music will appreciate the passion and skill of the people on this record.

All three of these records are musts for anyone that plays or is interested in playing old-time music on the banjo.

A great learning tool, a pleasure to listen to, and basically a masterpiece compilation, this cd is among my all-time favorites!

5.0 out of 5 stars An outstanding set of bluegrass/old-timey music! February 12, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Yahoo!! These are some of the most welcomed reissue records in all of bluegrass-land, extended versions of the original three-volume series of vinyl LPs from the 1960s and '70s, that feature some of the sweetest, simplest examples of the downpicking, or clawhammer, style of banjo playing... These tracks were all gathered by folklorist Charlie Faurot, who recorded informal sessions by Tommy Jarrell, George Stoneman, Wade Ward, and many other, less well-known clawhammer pickers. Most of the tracks, but not all, are instrumentals, and while you might think that three albums worth of the same style of music on the same instrument might wear thin after a while, I actually found these to be some of the most enjoyable records I've listened to recently. You can just kick back and let the music flow, washing you in waves of a bygone time... As the liner notes point out, since these records were originally issued, all of the artists featured on them have passed away, and with them went the direct connection to the older, backwoods world they came from. Sure, there are folks today who can play in the same style and who know all the old songs, but somehow there's nothing that quite matches the feel of music made by people who really grew up in rural communities without electricity or many of the other amenities of modern life, folks who have felt the sweet side of hard times, players from another time and another world altogether. Anyway, these discs all sound special to me, and I think you'll like 'em, too... And for present-day students of clawhammer banjo, you couldn't ask for a better guide to the style... Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent old time banjo album April 1, 2007
Format:Audio CD
If you love old time style banjo playing, and performed in a mostly all instrumental, not many lyrics, style, then you'll love this album.

As a banjo enthusiast, I do not know how I have not stumbled upon this earlier. I am glad I did and now cannot stop listening to this album. There is link on the NPR website with more information from a contribution by another great banjo player Paul Brown.

4.0 out of 5 stars Authentic and Enjoyable February 4, 2014
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
If you enjoyed volume 1, this won't disappoint. There is some great fretless stuff on this one, and a nice variety of different-sounding banjos, clawhammer styles, and tunings.
