AllMusic Review by

A straight reissue of a 1964 album, this CD is one of very few examples of Lulu Belle and Scotty's music that has appeared on compact disc. Recorded late in their careers, Down Memory Lane... may not be the most representative collection, but it is an excellent album that alternates acoustic hillbilly ballads and novelties with more modern-sounding efforts. "Wonderful Lies" flirts with the Nashville sound and rock & roll, while "The Devil's Tramping Ground" is a spooky minor-key cautionary tale. This isn't prime Lulu Belle & Scotty, but it's a fine collection by a duo that deserves a more comprehensive retrospective.
