There was a remarkable seven-year gap in the recording of the tracks on this disc. After years of struggling for widespread success, the members of this seminal family trio finally parted ways. The material is terrific as usual, though some tracks sound a bit flat in the delivery. Perhaps the strain of maintaining a family group began to show in the performance of the tunes, as daughters Maybelle and Sara struggled for their own identity. Not the best of the Carter Family recordings, but certainly great.
