Fortunately, Jody Stecher and Kate Brislin's attempt, like Ginny Hawker and Kate Justice's 1999 tribute, is the real thing. Not only do the sing the Carter Family's songs, but they also perform them in the spirit of the originals. This spare and lovingly performed music features Stecher and Brislin taking turns on lead vocals, accompanying themselves on guitars and occasionally mandolin. As far as standouts go on this album, there are so many that it's difficult to know where to begin. Brislin sings a lovely lead on "Bear Creek Blues," backed by Stecher's bluesy guitar work. Her lead on "Dreaming of You Darling" is plaintive and sad, as she sings of her love leaving her for another. Stecher's vocals on "Dark and Stormy Weather" and "Don't Forget This Song" are pure old-time country, delivered in a relaxed, straightforward fashion. Their harmony is occasionally aided by the bass singing of Larry Hanks.
Stecher and Brislin are two of the finest duet singers to emerge from the old-time music revival of the 1960s, and their sweet mountain harmonies and beautifully understated guitar picking are a fitting tribute to Sara, Maybelle, and .
