AllMusic Review by

Going Back to Old Kentucky is essentially a showcase for the instrumental skills of Roger Cooper, one of the best old-timey fiddlers of the '90s. As a result, there's might be a lack of full-fledged songs here -- nearly every song is arranged as a vehicle for Cooper's fiddling -- but it stands unparalleled as a fiddle record. There is zest and vigor within in his playing, which elevates him from the category of a mere technical wonder and into a fully rounded musician.
