Wow. This is quite possibly the most fun, most raucous collection of field recordings I've heard in my life. Sure, I love the (usually) more somber works of folks like Leadbelly and Mississippi John Hurt, but the Memphis Jug Band rock out! The jug is used to great effect... its limitations as a pseudo-instrument are constantly transcended on this set. It sounds awesome, as does the frequent use of kazoo.

The Memphis Jug Band is totally punk rock! Check out "Cocaine Habit Blues"... any ignorant pop dork who thinks that the Velvet Underground invented "dark" drug songs needs to listen to this song (not to mention a million others from this era) and get schooled. I've never done drugs in my life, but that doesn't make this song any less awesome. It's the most rock and roll thing I've heard in a long time. (a customer)
