Sandy and Caroline,

I just received my copy today. An excellent, clear reproduction of recordings made years ago. What a joy to hear those voices! An excellent choice for Vol. 1 from your field archives. It is important to keep these CDs rolling out. I was delighted that you chose to give us different versions of several of the ballads. It is rare that we get a demonstration of the folk process within one recording.

This CD was a long time a-coming, but was put together with great care and intelligence. Sandy, the investment in the listener's desire to learn-- with a 56 page booklet of notes-- is unheard of. Thank you for thinking it mattered.
