4.0 out of 5 stars Stole and Sold December 31, 2004
Format:Audio CD
I'm not sure why it took me so long to getting around to buying this disc. Southern Banjo Sounds is great. True Vine is great. This one is 10+ years older than both of them but I didn't get it until late in 2004. Yes it's a cliche but better late than never.

I think the original release date on the site is incorrect. There is no mention in the notes of this being a re-release. In fact Mike mentions the New Lost City Ramblers as clearly being in his past, and that this release is around the 30th anniversary of his quitting a real job and becoming a full-time musician. So, be thinking a '91 release, rather than a '62. Beyond that, it just doesn't sound like the early '60s.

Of the 3 solo Seeger albums I just mentioned, this is simultaneously the most uneven one and one of the best ones. Maybe not so much uneven, it's just that a few tunes on the first half of the disc aren't my preferred style. I tent to like the darker, more emotional, hard hitting old-timey music more than alot of the more lighthearted goofy stuff... thusly Tennessee Dog, Groundhog, etc... are lightly entertaining, but they aren't my bread and butter for the soul.

Although when I look at this album in terms of the big picture, I easily forgive the few tunes for which I don't much care. Why do I do that, you ask? Roustabout, Tucker's Barn, Wind and Rain, Fare You Well Green Fields, We're Stole and Sold from Africa, Rockbridge Holler, and Quill Ditty are the main reasons.

If you like autoharp, you need this disc. There are only two autoharp tracks here (Tucker's Barn and Wind and Rain), but they are both fantastic. Tucker's Barn is absolutely beautiful and quickly became one of my favorite autoharp tracks I've heard.
