AllMusic Review by

Originally released on LP, these are the original Columbia recordings of the Maddox Brothers & Rose from the '50s. The 13 tracks run the gamut between sacred songs, hillbilly, rockabilly, and novelty tunes including "Old Black Choo Choo," "Bringing in the Sheaves," "Ugly and Slouchy," "The Death of Rock & Roll," and "The Hiccough Song." Since Arhoolie and Bear Family have reissued this material on CD, you won't need to spend your time searching used record stores or websites for it.
