Another excellent CD by this great group but be aware that Amazon states this CD was released in 2011 when it was actually released in 2007.
Not a new release. Was their second CD.

This is one of the best of the CCD so far. This contains much of the material from their other CDs (before Genuine Negro Jig), but even if you have all that stuff, its worth a listen.

Some of the tunes were recrded live at various venues early in their career, such as "Jack "O Diamonds" which has a nice mountain feel to it.

The version of the country classic "Sitting On top of the World" (a staple of Black string bands some eight decades ago) is quite well done with Dom Flemmons lead, as well as the subversive "Bye Bye Policeman" from the legendary country bluesman Jim Jackson (I would have loved to hear the CCDs take on Jackson's OLD DOG BLUE. Maybe they'll do this in the future).

This also has the classic JALIDONG, which appears in an identical version on COLORED ARISTOCRACY. Here, Rhihannon's sister leads in with a poem called "Banjo Dreams" about Black musicians reclaming the pre-jazz heritage of string band music, which segues into charter Sankofa Sounds (predecessor of the CCDs) member Sule Greg Wilson singing about the role of the Jalis (aka griots-the singers storytellers of West Africa) and tying all of this in with what the CCD do today. No other tune I know of truly caturs the connection between the Black music of American and Africa. A classic, as is this CD.

I first heard the CCD on "The Hunger Games" cd. I got it because Neko Case had a song on it. When I heard "Daughter's Lament" I hit the internet at ordered the "Heritage" disc. To say I was impressed would an understatement.

Their respect for the heritage of early black music,from the days of Charlie Patton, Blind Lemon Jefferson, up the Missippi to Memphis and countless towns and jukes to Chicago. Is all blended in the music that they do so well.

I play it at least once a week, and never tire of it.

I first heard this style of music when I went into the Air Force in 1966. My class went to Gunter AFB outside of Montogomery, AL.'66 was a long hot summer. Wallace was running his wife, Lureen, for governer. It was the summer James Meridith was shot in Mississippi. At times downtown was off limits. We knew why. The Klan.

My roomate was a black kid from Pittsburg and tough as nails. But had a fear of the 'necks in Alabama were, obviously, everywhere.

Another friend of ours, T. Boaz, asked if we have ever been to the black church up the road a piece. We haven't. Now Tom and I are white and my roomy Jerry black.

We were taken in like family. we wern't white or black. Just folks. After services we had an outdoor dinner with music. Aaaah the music.

When I listened to the Carolina Chocolate Drops "Hertige", the memories of that summer came back in an emotional rush. Events long placed in the back of my mind came forward. I became proud of how I was raised.

My mother was born and bred on the Virginia,Carolina line. I was never taught racisim. She would say "Your no better or no worse that anyone else". "Treat all people with respect and they will treat you the same in kind".

Heard their Going to Jackson on a PBS tribute to Johnny Cash and thought they were better on that then even June and the Man. Bought one cd, then another, then another. They are great and Ms. Giddens is beyond great.

The entire album is incredible, but "Sing It Louder" (aka "I can help you feel that love") just rocks. On this recording Cary Morin reveals a deep connection to the powerful strain of rhythm and blues that originated in the Mississippi Delta and found its way into American popular music via the likes of Mississippi John Hurt. The alternating fingerpicked bass lines, sometimes root to fifth and back, sometimes chromatic, illustrate technical mastery. The brilliant sensitivity to subtle changes in dynamics and tempo reveal an artistic depth that comes only through passion and many years of listening, performing and living.

But the most impressive things about this recording, the biggest surprise for me, was Cary's voice. Now Cary has always been able to sing. I first heard Cary perform in the early 90s. But the surprise is this: he sounds even better today than he did back then when he sang his own "Dream Marquee" and covered some of the greats, including Dylan's "I Will Be Released," Bob Marley's "No Woman No Cry" and even Disney's "I Wan'na Be Like You." He killed it then, but he's still killing it today.

To sum up, you need to buy this recording. Now. Just do it.

Really good album to hear traditional string band music with very strong vocals by Rhiannon Giddens. Album is the mostly the sort of thing that I call fun music.

The release is filled with upbeat acoustic folk/blues tunes which are expertly crafted and sung by Morin. It's curious listening to this recording as it brings to mind the early music of James Taylor where his singing was soothing, invigorating and enjoyable. Morin is a terrific guitar player and uses his acute dexterity to play both chords and finger pick his way through the recording. I have listened to it a number of times today and would say based upon my description, it isn't the typical recording that I would buy, but I am very happy that I have it and plan to play it often. Cary demonstrates great songwriting, singing and playing talents and has put together a very cool recording that if given the exposure it deserves, should find it's place in many permanent collections.
