The album features 41 tracks by the top old-time groups performing at the time, from veterans like the New Lost City Ramblers and Highwoods String Band to up-and-comers such as the Indian Creek Delta Boys and the Horse Flies. You have household names (well, in old-time households, at least) such as Art Rosenbaum, Brad Leftwich, Pat Conte, Alan Jabbour, Mac Benford, Bruce Molsky, Doc Watson, Paul Brown, Richie Stearns and so many more.

I've been wanting to get this album on CD for a long time, but them I found it for sale on Discogs for a dollar more than I would have paid for the CD on Amazon. Unfortunately, the album is missing the inserts, so I may try to track those down somehow. If you have any leads, let me know in the comments!
