Despite this impressive list, The Unbroken Circle gets a very rocky start with lukewarm efforts by Jones, Crow, Harris, and Johnny Cash. Jones and Cash sound fairly rough, and Harris' outing, backed by the Peasall Sisters, is underwhelming. While the album never quite recovers from this early stumble, there are bright spots after those first four songs. Marty Stuart offers a truly superb version of "Never Let the Devil Get the Upper Hand of You," filled with creepy ambience and a fine vocal, while Janette and Joe Carter's take on "Little Moses" sounds more old-time than the Carter Family. There are solid offerings by Nelson, John Prine, and the Del McCoury Band before everything comes to a crash landing with the less polished contributions of June Carter Cash and Kris Kristofferson.

Hold Fast To The Right. 15. –The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band With Kris Kristofferson. Gold Watch And Chain.

The legacy of the Carter Family is as relevant today as it was when their journey first began, which places them alongside the greatest of the greats in the pantheon of musical history. For the delicate task of paying proper homage to such figures, John Carter Cash stepped up to the plate as producer - his parents are none other than country legends Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash (daughter of founding member Mother Maybelle Carter). His pedigree alone bodes well for the project, and the fine job he's done with this tribute would make his kin proud

Compilation by various artists. Worried Man Blues by George Jones. No Depression In Heaven by Sheryl Crow. On The Sea Of Galilee by Emmylou Harris with The Peasall Sisters. Engine One-Forty-Three by Johnny Cash. Never Let The Devil Get The Upper Hand Of You by Marty Stuart and The Fabulous Superlatives. Little Moses by Joe and Janette Carter. Black Jack David by Norman and Nancy Blake with Tim O'Brien. Bear Creek Blues by John Prine. You Are My Flower by Willie Nelson.

Simply said, the Carter Family is known by Country fans around the world. Their vocal harmonies became a standard for Coun-try artist hopefuls. Maybelle’s drop-thumb guitar style, which took the instrument from simple background rhythm to lead in songs such as Wildwood Flower, is still studied by guitar players today. The Carters’ im-portance as preservers and popularizers of folk and Victorian compositions cannot be overlooked.

Carter joined up with songsmith and wandering story collector Alvin Pleasant Carter and his wife Sara to create some of the country standards that are still reworked and covered today more than 60 years later. On this attractive and star-packed tribute from Dualtone, many of country music’s current bearers of the Carter legacy nod their collective musical hats to this talented family. Sheryl Crow, Willie Nelson, Emmylou Harris and Ricky Skaggs are just a few of the more than a dozen artists that offer their interpretations of the Carters’ legacy.
