The 40 tracks on Hills of Home include performances by legendary artists such as Woody Guthrie, Leadbelly, and the Louvin Brothers; noteworthy contemporary musicians such as Bill Morrissey; and a selection from the classic Have Moicy! album by Michael Hurley & the Unholy Modal Rounders. In other words, there is so much good music on this album that it's worth hearing even if you dislike a few of the artists or already own a few of the selections.
