 Notes & Reviews
 
Surprisingly good, all round.
- Terence Halden, 12/16/2011, Canada

A surprisingly good collection of artists and period songs. Startling to hear 'Love Me Tender' was an 1860's song. The Elvis film was historically correct! Standout is the McGarrigles & Families 'Hard Times Come Again No More' plus many old favorites fro m (primary) school days folk-singing sessions.
- David Jellett, 02/07/2011, Australia

A great CD that was impossible to get in the U.K.
- Michael Richards, 10/25/2004, England

Inspired by the successful Civil War documentary from Ken Burns, this powerful soundtrack tackles many diverse musical styles from traditional folk and bluegrass to black gospel and outlaw country.
