With a catalog of some 400 albums to choose from, selecting songs for inclusion must have been a daunting task indeed. Yet such is the overall quality of Stony Plain’s output; in truth it would be hard to go wrong. There’s not a weak track in the bunch, and while highlights will vary from listener to listener, those with a taste for roots music in general – again, you know it when you hear it – will find this a delightful collection with a surprise around every turn.
If you’re familiar with any of Stony Plain’s impressive talent roster, you’ll find this a tantalizing introduction to other worthy artists. If you simply want a no-filler, all-killer compilation that touches on everything rootsy, you simply won’t find a compilation offering a more varied yet consistently high-quality playlist.
Here's looking forward to Stony Plain celebrations of many more milestones, for many years to come!
