This 4-CD, 58-track collection spans from 1962 when Nesuhi Ertegun recorded New Orleans living legends at the Preservation Hall in its infancy to 2010 when the current incarnation of the Preservation Hall Jazz Band recorded with an array of musical guests including Richie Havens, Tom Waits, Pete Seeger and Del McCoury. Among the classic artists represented are George Lewis, Billie and De De Pierce, Punch Miller, Percy Humphrey, Willie Humphrey, Jim Robinson. and Sweet Emma Barrett.
