There's nothing that quite compares to the elemental and evocative sound of the Dixon Brothers. Their country blues might bring Dock Boggs to mind, but where Boggs failed at a banjo, here you have the tropical twang of Howard Dixon's acoustic slide guitar lines. The Dixons also precede the great Louvin Brothers, with close harmonies and a mix of sacred, heartfelt Gospel and secular tunes like "Sales Tax on the Women." But the lack of polish on the Dixons makes them all the more compelling. So forget the comparisons and just revel in this wonderful music: honest, tuneful, and simply delightful. The transfers are excellent on this reissue, with clear reproduction that leaves enough of a scratch to give a sense of the history to these sessions. Awesome. ~ Tim Sheridan
