My Clinch Mountain Home: Their Complete Victor Recordings (1928–1929) is a compilation of recordings made by American country music group the Carter Family, released in 1993. It is the second of nine compilations released by Rounder Records of the group's Victor recordings.[1]

History[edit]

The original Carter Family group consisted of Alvin Pleasant "A.P." Delaney Carter, his wife Sara Dougherty Carter, and his sister-in-law Maybelle Addington Carter. A.P. traveled around the southwestern Virginia area in search of new songs, resulting in many traditional songs being copyrighted in his name. In 1927, the trio auditioned for record producer Ralph Peer and subsequently began their recording career with Victor.[2]

The tracks have all been digitally remastered and include liner notes by country music historian Charles K. Wolfe.

Reception[edit]

In his Allmusic review, critic Ron Wynn stated, "...the first two [reissues] only make you eager for more."[1] Music critic Alana Nash stated, "When Sara lets loose with her straightforward, heavily accented soprano ("cwar" for choir), surely the angels in heaven take note."[3]
