10/10 Hy Shuster

Leave it to the Americans to astutely and beautfifully deconstruct their own music and cultural history. In a unique and breathtaking way, this anthology by, as the label says, 'the Grammy award winning team of Christopher King and Hank Sapoznik' have constructed a package which allows both experts and novices a critical insight into the rise of commercial rural music both for blacks and whites. Sparkling remastering by King with a brilliantly fetching design by Susan Archie gives the listener an heirloom quality package while the notes by Sapoznik and Tom Waits illuminate the tenor of the times in erudite and colorful language. This is a terrific team and one can only hope that Tompkins Square will reunite them for many more reissues in the future.
