AllMusic Review by

Mormon Folk Songs is a stunning, unaffected, and haunting body of folk music from across 100-plus years of Mormon history, laid down with nothing but his voice by L.M. Hilton, who also provides an introduction to each one. This is the next thing to field recording, and as vivid a picture of the real musical roots of the far west as any of us have likely ever heard or ever will hear. And it's essential listening not only for folk enthusiasts but for western song buffs and anyone with an interest in the true American west.
