The Music of John Hartford
book Mark Twang

Amazon review: John Hartford passed away two days ago after a long battle with cancer. He was an American original, a great writer, musician, humorist, and archivist. I've owned "Mark Twang" for over 20 years and among all the folk and bluegrass records I have it still stands out as one of the most unique and a great favorite. John playing fiddle, John playing banjo, often while clogging to the rhythm—it is as close as you will come to having somebody play in your house. That was, I think, an essential virtue of his music and why I believe you could learn a lot about American folk music by listening to this album. If the news of John Hartford's passing has compelled you to seek out his recordings, then I believe that you will find yourself richly rewarded for discovering this one.

book Aereo-Plain

Amazon review: John Hartford didn't just bite the hand that fed him; he made it a full-course meal. After Glen Campbell rode Hartford's "Gentle on My Mind" to the top of the charts, Hartford was secure enough to stick his tongue out at the Nashville establishment. His songs offer an almost unparalleled blend of sardonicism and sincerity, a silliness tempered by a respect for musical tradition and beautiful melody.
