The Carter Family are, without doubt, the most influential figures of American Roots music. That influence is as palpable today as it has ever been, passed down through successive generations of musicians and writers. The simple, but profound content of the songs contained here, and the beauty of the performances, many over eight decades old, cannot be denied. As a point of entry into the timeless music of the Carter Family, this collection is unbeatable. The family’s June Carter would marry the legendary Johnny Cash – 50 tracks from this legendary genre defining group.
