"There are 2 ways to deal with the traditions and history of music. Some bands try to copy the old 78's lick for lick, and take the old music as seriously as a Schubert quintet. But a few bands - a very few - make that wild charge down the hill, and respond to the past with aggression, passion, excitement and joy. The best of these bands is a remarkable group from North Carolina, The Freight Hoppers." - Charles Wolfe (from his liner notes).
