AllMusic Review by

A classic for lovers of good and heartfelt music played with joy. This has Paddy Moloney and the Chieftains combining forces with one of the best assemblages of country musicians put together. A diverse group it definitely is, stretching from Ricky Skaggs to Don Williams to Colin James running into Willie Nelson and Chet Atkins and so forth in a cornucopia of audio delight. From the opening joy of "Happy to Meet," tcrossing the musical streets to "Heartbreak Hotel," to the romping joy shown by the players in "Cotton-Eyed Joe" and "Cunla," this CD is a never-ending country grab-bag of musical mastery. The players seem to be a unit that has been been down the long hard road of wire fenced stages in cheap bars together honing its skills, which arrive at fruition here.
