Call it country, bluegrass, old-timey, or even Appalachian soul. Whatever the label, the voices of Hazel Dickens, Carol Elizabeth Jones, and Ginny Hawker take you straight to the heart of American mountain music. In duet and trio settings with spare bluegrass instrumental backing, the three women cover a repertoire that ranges from a Civil War ballad to an obscure Woody Guthrie love song, plus plenty of Stanley Brothers-style gospel and some fine original songs by Dickens and Jones. This is a stirring album that reveals the depth, beauty, and raw power of simple song.
Amazing Bluegrass Classic!
Beautiful music sung by voices that are full of character from women who have lived life and experienced suffering! Great bluegrass harmonies. If you are a Bluegrass fan, you will want this album in your collection.
Disregard the probing, insightful review that precedes this one: this album is timeless and classic. Any collection with Hazel Dickens on it is a guaranteed masterpiece, and this one is no different. If you enjoy perfect 3-part harmony and simple, quiet, beautiful music, then you'll love this collection. Even if it sounds as if it were recorded, like, a gazillion years ago.
