Overview

Rural Rhythm's 40 Classics: Old Time Mountain Music is really a "two-fer" collecting J.E. Mainer & His Mountaineers' 1967 albums Old Time Mountain Music and More Old Time Mountain Music. Fiddler Mainer and his Mountaineers were one of the more popular string bands of the 1930s, blending classic old-time country and gospel-tinged bluegrass into an Appalachian stew that the music community ate up like hotcakes. The recordings featured here are not from the group's heydays, but the improved late-'60s production makes for a smoother listen, bringing to mind early recordings by the Dillards and late-era Bill Monroe.
