AllMusic Review by

25 Mountain Music Classics: Songs of Rural America is an excellent set extolling the fine music from rural America. Several obscure musicians from the Simon & Garfunkel of the mountains, the Ritchie Brothers, to Jim Greer and Edith Roberts are represented here next to Mac Wiseman and Hylo Brown, spotlighting a time when recording artists were first learning how to lay down more polished recordings. A necessity for fans of the Louvin Brothers and early bluegrass, 25 Mountain Music Classics: Songs of Rural America should satiate the most critical music fans.
