AllMusic Review by

Topic's travellers recordings are fine, but this distillation from Peter Kennedy's superb Folktracks collection comes near to being definitive. Some of the singers -- Scotland's Jeannie Robertson, Ireland's Margaret Barry -- are fairly famous. Other singers and musicians -- Phoebe Smith, the multifarious Stewarts -- are even names only to the real buffs. All are guardians of a true and noble tradition.
