AllMusic Review by

Jasmine's Just Plain Folks: Country Songs of the Old Folks at Home collection features 27 very specific front-porch ruminations on moms and dads culled from the vaults of the early American country music scene. This ballad-heavy compilation stays true to its subject with quality (there are some scratchy numbers here) old-timey, gospel, cowboy, and traditional country numbers from the likes of Eddy Arnold ("Tennessee Ploughboy/That Wonderful Mother of Mine"), Hank Snow ("Answer to That Silver Haired Daddy of Mine"), Matty O'Neil ("Don't Sell Daddy Any More Whiskey"), and Esmereldy & Her Shotgun Five ("Put Down Yore Shootin' Iron Pappy").
