Description
An object lesson in music of the people, this 18-track anthology includes laments such as the Lee Brothers Trio's "Cotton Mill Blues" and Fisher Hendley's "Weave Room Blues": "Working in a weave room fighting for my life / Trying to make a living for my young'ins and my wife / Some are needing clothes and some are needing shoes / But I'm getting nothing but those weave room blues."

"Blind Alfred Reed's 1929 rallying cry 'How Can A Poor Man Stand Such Times And Live' could well have served as the album's subtitle. The same could be said for just about any of the collection's plaints about tenant farming or toiling in the coal fields and textile mills—everything from the Bentley Boys' jaunty-in-spite-of-itself 'Down on Penny's Farm' to Frank Hutchison's brooding, black-influenced 'Miner's Blues'."—No Depression

"An enjoyable collection. Fiddle, guitar, and banjo accompany Kelly Harrell's vocal on the catchy 'My Name Is John Johanna,' while bright, bouncy banjo bolsters Uncle Dave Macon's lively 'Wreck of the Tennessee Gravy Train.' Clarence Ashley and Gwen Foster deliver 'Bay Rum Blues,' which sounds like a stripped-down version of a jug band song, and Lowe Stokes offers his unadorned opinion in 'Prohibition Is a Failure.'"—All Music Guide
