This is truely a unique concept album, and it has sold very well. All of the feedback has been positive. The most common comment we get is "I have a different favorite song (from Pickin' On Harmony) every time I listen to this album".
That is understandable because there is a song for almost any mood and popular music style on this CD.
It is a project recorded entirely with vintage instruments. The CD has a warm "real" sound, we get lots of comments from fellow pickers on how much they appreciate the overall tone on this album.
Another unique feature is an extensive "audio liner" track that fully explains the album as well as well as letting the listener know what gear was used on each song!
