Not Their Best Effort

This is a good album but it is not their best. It has several historical songs but they are not the best. The songs were not recognizable. I did like hearing unusual songs but this was not my favorite album.

Great tunes

This is another fantastic collection of civil war era songs from the 2nd Carolina boys. I think that this is one of their most enjoyable albums.

Finally, the correct The Swanee River (except name)

Every version of The Swanee River on iTunes is either to up tempo, to slow, or some boogie and non-banjo perversion. If all of those are checked off as okay, then it's the lyrics. The song is about a black feller, poorly educated, far from home, and yearning fondly to go back where he's accepted for who he is. It's a beautiful song, but everyone seems worried the mispronounced words (like 'ribber' and 'mudder') are somehow offensive. Correcting the pronunciation destroys the quaint charm of the original writer, and is a slap to the face of folk song history. These gentlemen got it right; perfect tempo, lyrics, and instrumentation. The vocalist is so-so, but I doubt the original singer was any better, which actually helps the song feel more authentic. Excellent job guys!
