"Arhoolie's Hillbilly Jamboree is a terrific 24-track collection of old time and traditional country. There are a number of big names here -- including Rose Maddox, Del McCoury, and the Carter Family -- but what really makes it noteworthy is that the artists who aren't household names (Uncle Patterson, Armstrong Twins, the Hodges Brothers, Bill Neely, and Sam McGee, among others) deliver music that's equally enjoyable, resulting in a very, very good sampler."
