Description
This "lost" Electra album of the 1960s, felicitously resurrected by Collectors Choice, positions Randy Newman's female cousin Dian James (who was influenced by Rose Maddox) at the center of a trio of male singers/musicians on guitar, mandolin, and banjo. Songs include "Sally, Let Your Bangs Hang Down," Hoyt Axton's arrangement of "He Was a Friend," Leadbelly's "Green Corn," "Tramp on the Street," "Precious Lord," "If I Were Free," and "Tragic Romance."

"James was actually a fine and wonderfully nuanced singer. The album itself was kind of a hybrid—part bluegrass, part folk, and part country—with James' impressive vocals hinting at pop possibilities as well. Among the more successful tracks are versions of 'Alabama Bound,' A.P. Carter's 'Cannon Ball Blues,' and 'Sweet Willie,' drawn from a Jean Ritchie melody, but the album as a whole coheres quite well, full of subtle variation."—All Music Guide
