This 87-song retrospective reveals that much of Rounder Records' success lies with its stellar artist roster. J.D. Crowe & The New South kick it off, covering The Dillards’ 1963 bluegrass jam “Old Home Place.” Ola Belle Reed’s “High on a Mountain” is another classic standout that sounds as old as the hills but fresh as wild daisies. Still, nobody on the first disc sings Appalachian mountain music better than Alice Gerrard & Hazel Dickens, with gorgeous harmonies on “Don’t Put Her Down You Helped Put Her There.” Also spotlighted in this collection are some of Rounder’s non-folk artists, like Jonathan Richman (on the quirky, doo wop–tinged “New Kind of Neighborhood”) and a live cut of NRBQ’s “Me and the Boys." You’ll also find more contemporary-sounding Americana by artists like Alison Krauss and Jimmie Dale Gilmore, as well as blues and soul tunes by Wilson Pickett and Irma Thomas. The compilation ends eclectically with the warm guitar distortion of Son Volt’s “Down to the Wire,” a live acoustic version of “Resist” by Rush, and “Fibber Island” from They Might Be Giants’ 2002 children’s album.
