Editorial Reviews

Women in America began staking a claim in country music long before recording equipment existed. The women country singers are the ones known as the Flowers in the Wildwood and on this disc they sing their old time country music in high sweet voices with only the sparsest of instrumental accompaniment. Though edging out from folk tradition, this music is made by women who were for the most part commercial country singers, because that's who typically made it onto records and the radio, after all. This collection dates from the decade before World War II, with a few precious offerings reaching back as far as the 1920s. These 25 rare recordings, released by Germany's quirky Trikont label, seem untouched by modern technology. 2005.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous April 3, 2004
By Beth
Format:Audio CD
This cd collects early country music made by women 1923-1939. Except for Patsy Montana and The Carter Family, most of the songs here are from obscure artists. The booklet is informative and goes over the history and struggle of these women, each artist in the disc is discussed. A lot of the songs featured on the cd are rare. The most creative group here is the DeZurik Sisters, who incorporated the sounds of their barn animals into their yodeling. They're not only original but they have great harmony. Another song that stood out was Louisiana Lou's bluesy With my Bango on my Knee Blues. The music here may have come from a long while ago but much of the material here is inventive.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic material, excellent compilation June 8, 2007
Format:Audio CD
This album turned me on to some fabulous folk and gospel singers I'd never heard before - like the Dezurik Sisters, whose synchronized chirps and yodels are pitch-perfect as well as entertaining, and the Chuck Wagon Gang, who seem to have taken a jar of happy pills before launching into "We Are Climbing." Other favorites: the Aaron Sisters, Patsy Montana, and the sometimes frightening Roba Stanley. Other songs are hit-or-miss, but the 8 or 9 gems make this a disc worth having for any early country or bluegrass fan. Liner notes are excellent as well. -AR

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Beautiful January 27, 2008
Format:Audio CD
A great collection of music from early women contributors to the Country, Cowboy and Hillbilly canon. The simplicity of the songs, the voices and the production really allows their artistry to shine.
