All Music Guide - Matt Fink
Combining their two LP's on one disc, this extremely accomplished and versatile female string band rips through 25 songs in just under 80 minutes, all the while managing to throw out a dizzying array of influences. Featuring truly exemplary instrumental skills, as well as excellent harmony singing, Any Old Time String Band bounce with apparent ease from exuberant fiddle tunes to 20's and 30's pop influences and Cajun tunes.

Featuring truly exemplary instrumental skills, as well as excellent harmony singing, Any Old Time String Band bounce with apparent ease from exuberant fiddle tunes to 20's and 30's pop influences and Cajun tunes. Bluesier material is represented with covers of two Bessie Smith tracks, "I've Got What It Takes" and "Lock and Key," as well as Ma Rainey's "Fairwell Blues." More traditional country elements are also found with the outstanding harmony singing on the Carter Family's "Hello Stranger" and the straightlaced cover of Jimmie Rodgers "California Blues."
