I haven't listened to all the tracks yet as I first digitized the music and added tag information to the files.
I must say this is a very unusual collection, not what you would typically find in commercial offerings. I haven't listened enough yet to comment on the organization or classification of the songs on the albums, but all the discs did digitize successfully.
These are not songs that will stick in your memory and have you repeating them over and over in your mind, but if you truly appreciate the art, this is a good collection The only thing so far that I have noticed is that a few of the tracks definitely should have been 'cleaned' much better maybe they weren't at all?
I'll have to do this myself before I finally commit them to our music server. The printed documentation that is included seems to be very nicely done and will, I'm pretty sure, make for good background on the recordings. This is definitely music that will have you tapping your foot or nodding your head in time.
It's a great preservation of lots of tracks by artists you would not otherwise hear at all because they weren't so famous or popular. I must say that most of the songs I have never heard before.

A Must Have Collection! First I listened to them via Spotify, but after finding out that Mississippi Records out of Portland, OR had done a limited pressing on gram vinyl only in a one time only pressing, so act fast! I knew I would need to seek these out. Like many record collectors there is always the concern of quality.
Well i can tell you the quality of this reissue is superb. The sound of this pressing is immaculate and the packaging is wildly indulgent; the cardboard sleeve is so thick and heavy it is almost absurd! The collection consisted of recordings produced between and , a period that Smith perceived as the final years of distinct regional musical traditions. During the late s professional musicians in rural America remained relatively insulated from the influence of the mass market and many were recorded performing vernacular music before they knew how they sounded on records.
