Certainly there are dozens if not a hundred compilations of the music of the Carter Family. While Rounder issued the complete Victor recordings, and there have been some Columbia sets issued as well, this fairly priced single-disc, 25-cut collection from Proper is all most people need. These tunes were all taken from the 1920s and '30s, and are the original recorded versions of these standards. Virtually every major Carter cut is here -- "Wildwood Flower," "Stay on the Sunny Side," "John Hardy," "Wabash Cannonball," "Worried Man Blues," "My Clinch Mountain Home," and many others. For the money, this set cannot be denied. ~ Thom Jurek
