Editorial Reviews

This 72-minute companion piece to The Early Years 1958-1962 is drawn from the seven Folkways albums that the New Lost City Ramblers recorded between 1963 and 1973, following the entry of Tracy Schwartz and the departure of Tom Paley, and it's every bit as essential as the first volume.
