What they're saying about "BAD TIMES & BETTER TIMES:"

“Wow-this is old time music as good as it gets! I especially like the twin fiddles, singing and banjo playing” -- Mark F., Staten Island, NY

"100 years of great old time american music----    This band gets in "the groove" on a great range of old time American music ranging from the Civil War through the 1930s. It's refreshing to hear great versions of what you'd hear at a contemporary festival along with classics that don't get played as much as they should-- and sung as clearly and authentically as Alan does. A great, high-energy sampler of old time music with wonderful fiddling from Harry and accompaniment by the band throughout." -- Howard, NYC
