The first of Richard Dyer-Bennet's releases on his eponymous independent label is also among his very best; beautifully sung and impeccably crafted, #1 is also a landmark recording as one of the earliest and most successful artist-owned albums ever issued. Smithsonian Folkways' excellent reissue sports extensive liner notes and superbly remastered sound. ~ Jason Ankeny
