AllMusic Review by

An excellent collection that ranges from Delta blues to Appalachian folk, covering an impressive amount of ground. Featured artists include John Lee Hooker, Sonny Terry, Jean Ritchie and Peggy Seeger. The upgraded sound is excellent, cleaned up nicely without negative effects on the music. The Riverside catalog contains some true gems, and it's nice to see a few of those emerging here.
