Far more important than the Eagles getting back together was the 1966 reunion of Sara and Maybelle Carter. They had split up in 1944, and their reunion was midwifed by Johnny Cash. If anything, the advancing years had made them sound better. They did a lot of old Carter Family songs like The Ship That Never Returned, Sun Of The Soul,Weary Prodigal Son and Happiest Days Of All, and they did some songs that neither had recorded before, like Goin' Home and When The Band Is Playing Dixie. For CD reissue, this historic LP is rounded out with an additional master, plus a Maybelle Carter album from 1965 that saw her tackle a wide range of material from San Antonio Rose and Tom Cat's Kitten, to new songs by Tom T. Hall and Johnny Cash. Altogether, 24 pieces of music history.
