Reviews:

1. AllMusic - Steve Leggett
Brothers J.E. and Wade Mainer and their various bands and configurations formed a kind of bridge between the Appalachian string bands of the 1920s and the high-powered bluegrass bands that emerged after World War II. This 100-track box set from JSP charts the early years of this oftentimes dueling and quarreling pair in their various guises, sometimes together, sometimes not, and, more often than not, working with guitarist Zeke Morris as the Mountaineers, the Dixie Reelers, or the Morris Brothers.
