Liner notes by Ted Olson, song lyrics, and discography; produced by Ted Olson.
"In this collection, all of Reed’s songs, both faith-based and secular, recorded for the Victor Talking Machine Company over two sessions in 1927 in Bristol TN and Camden, NJ and two sessions in 1929 in New York City, are on one 22 track CD, complemented by well researched essays by Producer Ted Olson and LOTS of archival photos. Reed played fiddle and sang and on some sessions he was accompanied on guitar by his son Orville. ... Olson has included the younger Reed’s solo recordings." --Steve Ramm Review on Amazon
