referencing Anthology Of American Folk Music Volume Two: Social Music, 2xLP, Comp, Ltd, Num, RE, 200, MRP-071

Picked it up on a whim and was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the songs and of this pressing. You can certainly hear that some songs were lifted from 78 RPM sources and that's a quality worth hearing (if nothing else to hear how much quieter production has gotten since the late 1920s). Well worth picking if you enjoy early 20th century American Folk music. The booklet inside has great per track details/commentary.
