AllMusic Review by

Up on the Mountain, Vol. 1, is a collection of songs produced, arranged, and recorded by Uncle Jim O'Neal in the mid-'50s to 1960s for his Rural Rhythm label and features his usual stable of performers, including Earl Taylor, Red Smiley, J.E. Mainer, Hylo Brown, and Raymond Fairchild. Mostly light bluegrass, the musicians here are competent, pleasant, and professional, but the results are pretty generic and nothing truly catches fire.
