AllMusic Review by

Featuring over 75 minutes and 23 tracks, Rediscovered compiles tracks off Hurt's four Vanguard releases -- Today!, The Immortal Mississippi John Hurt, Last Sessions, and The Best of Mississippi John Hurt. The tracks selected are truly first-rate and give a fine cross-section of Hurt's gently rolling country-blues, including many of his better-known tracks such as "It Ain't Nobody's Business" and "Avalon, My Home Town," as well as a few spirituals and a handful of live tracks. These recordings are some of the last Hurt would make before his death, and are fine evidence of just how good he still was up until his last days.
