Consumer Guide Reviews:

Any Old Time String Band [Arhoolie, 1978]
The somewhat creaky musicianship of this all-woman quintet doesn't bother me, but if you have trouble putting your voice on a note and keeping it there, it's a mistake to let on that you care. Song finds: "Home in Pasadena" and (from old-time hero Bing Crosby) "C-U-B-A." C+
