Reviews

"This collection is very much the cream of the crop for Jug Band Music from the 20's and 30's. So many of the classic Jug Bands are here: The Memphis Jug Band, Gus Cannon's Jug Band, King David's Jug Band, The Dixieland Jug Band... For a one-disc collection, it packs a lot classics: "Walk Right In", Cocaine Habit Blues, Minglewood Blues, Tear It Down, Boodle Am Shake, so many songs later covered by the likes of the Jim Kweskin Jug Band, Maria Muldar, the New Christy Minstrels, the Lovin' Spoonful, the Grateful Dead, this CD is a great introduction to Jug Band Music without drifting all the way into the Hokum of Tampa Red and/or Barbecue Bob. Larger doses may be found in the JSP Box Sets Memphis Jug Band with Gus Cannon's Jug Stompers and Memphis Shakedown: More Jug Band Classics as well as Ruckus Juice & Chitlins, Vol. 1and Ruckus Juice & Chitlins, Vol. 2." - Anonymous
