Submitted for your approval: it's the '70s, and you're an awkward teenager who has just been "initiated" into the little-known parallel universe known as the Old-Time Country Music Revival. In this dimension, the timeframe is permanently locked on the 1920s and '30s-- yet the Revival's festivals, called "FIDDLERS' CONVENTIONS," look like mini-Woodstocks and most of it's participants like Dead Heads... except they're clutching vintage fiddles, guitars, mandolins, upright basses, 5-string banjos and weird "banjoid" instruments, like banjo-ukeleles and banjo-mandolins. All over the given festival's campsite are jam sessions that go on for hours where old friends and new merrily swap obscure tunes learned from scratchy 78 rpm records and field recordings.
Then, you mosey on down to the main stage. Check it out-- there are four guys and one gal up there who look like you and your friends, except for one difference; they can play the grits out of this stuff on high-octane and they're having a blast doing it.
You've now entered the HIGHWOODS STRING BAND Zone.
Thanks to Rounder Records, you can recapture the magic of the Highwoods String Band on this reissue of recordings made from 1972 to 1978. Here you can hear the tight-- but fun-- band arrangements that helped define today's old-time string band sound. Taking the lead are Walt Koken's and Bob Potts' twin fiddling and Mac Benford's racous 5-string banjo, while the rhythm section, made up of Jenny Cleland' bass fiddle and Doug Dorschug's guitar, propels the band and gives it a driving back beat.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best of them all June 12, 2001
By mattgb1
Format:Audio CD
If you can only listen to one old-timey pickin' album, this is it! The energy alone is downright incendiary, and the virtuosity is first rate. I can't count how many times I've listened to it, completely under its spell. The best!
If that's not high enough praise, let me tell you some of the other reasons I love it. First of all, the rendition of "Wild Bill Jones" is so far above any other I ever heard, that I consider this now to be THE Definitive version of that song. Even the subtle baritone harmonies behind the twangy lead voice give it a fullness and energy unheard elsewhere. And the instrumentals are downright breathtaking, for an overall transcendent listening experience. I'd buy the album just for that song.
But wait -- there's more. They don't let the sublime quality of their music interfere with the need to be plain old silly when they feel like it. In the song "Who Broke the Lock" (of the chicken coop), they have fun making whacky chicken sounds with the fiddle, and shucking and clucking in their lyrics. You'll feel like you're right there, joking around with them. And despite their mastery of instruments, the lyrics are always clear and easy to follow so you won't miss out on any of the fun.
I've shown this album to many friends. After they see the title, they look at me like I'm nuts; then they hear the music and ask if they can "borrow" it for a while. I just email them the Amazon link so they can buy their own. So there!

5.0 out of 5 stars True music with heart and soul. March 14, 2000
Format:Audio CD
If you never had the chance to see and hear the Highwoods String Band live then you need to get this CD. It will be the closest you will ever get to true mountain music. You can feel the closeness Mac, Walt, Doug,Bob, and Jenny share and experience their love of the root of music as it must have been so many years ago. I'm not a writer, I'm a lover of music. I long for the days back in 1972 in Norfolk, Va. at the Old Dominion Folk Festival seeing this group in action. You owe it to yourself to own this piece of art. I want more!

5.0 out of 5 stars My kids go wild over this! May 8, 2007
By pamela
Format:Audio CD
Never in my wildest imagination did I think this CD would be such a HIT with my children! They BEG to listen to it, and have most of the songs with words memorized! I bought it because I have joined an old time fiddle group jam session, and it had some of the tunes on it that we play...but it is more than that...it is PURE fun to listen to! The rendition of Hawks and Eagles is unbelieveably GREAT!

5.0 out of 5 stars The best 'new' bluegrass you'll hear January 26, 2008
Format:Audio CD
I've got the old original albums this compilation comes from, so I'm busy putting my vinyl on my computer rather than buying here. But let me put it this way...Highwood Stringband's version on Lee Highway Blues is the reason I bought a vinyl-to-computer pre-amp at all! They're one of those bands that makes you glad you're alive to hear them.
