Overview

Despite the generous number of tracks on this album and its companion, Jones Laughing Record -- 25 songs per CD -- there is much duplication of what is already widely available (Rhino and RCA both have fine collections out). Avid seems to have deliberately mixed obscure titles with well-known ones, but they have either ignored or did not know about the existence of other compilations. Consequently, there aren't many rarities here. "MacNamara's Band," "Old MacDonald Had a Farm" and "Mother Goose Medley" -- none of which are as lame as the titles would indicate -- make their CD debut with this disc...The transfers vary in sound quality...
