Notes and Editorial Reviews
This is a hybrid Super Audio CD playable on both regular and Super Audio CD players.

Anonymous 4 and special guest Bruce Molsky commemorate the 150th anniversary of the end of the (American) Civil War with songs that were in the air in the year 1865. Ballads and choruses originally intended for the stage and the parlor, songs and instrumental tunes from the hills and back roads of America: these are the stylized, versified, personal stories prized by so many men, women and children who lived through "This Cruel War".
