With 80 tracks spread over four CDs, this is a remarkable budget-priced collection, covering not only the tracks Charlie Poole recorded with his band, the North Carolina Ramblers, but also cuts that bandmembers laid down separately. The hits are all here, beginning with 1925's "Don't Let Your Deal Go Down Blues," which sold a staggering 100,000 copies.
