AllMusic Review by

This 18-track collection features everyone from Bill Monroe to Vince Gill. With tracks from Jim & Jesse, J.D. Crowe, Ricky Skaggs, Allison Krauss, Jimmy Martin, the Dillards (who played the Darlings on The Andy Griffith Show), Reno & Smiley, Flatt & Scruggs, the Stanley Brothers, Claire Lynch, Del McCoury, Jonathan Edwards, Chesapeake, and the Country Gentlemen, it's extremely hard to find fault with any of the artists or selections aboard. A great value in the midline field.
