Dixon Brothers, Vol. 3: 1937-1938 is another addition to the series featuring the popular country duo. The brothers do not disappoint, delivering another strong set of country and spiritual favorites from the time period. What is notable about this entry in the series is how they have moved from an equal mix of spirituals and traditional country to mostly performing the latter. Because of this shift, this album ends up covering one of the most important times of their career. The only real problem with this collection is the sound quality, which tends to be rather shrill and obnoxious at times. This is a shame because their wonderful harmonies are weakened greatly by the poor reproduction. But with some home stereo tampering, this could be a great album for fans of the team as well as for those looking for some classic traditional country. ~ Bradley Torreano
