E.C. Ball, late of Rugby, Virginia, possessed both a totally unique guitar style and a deep relaxed baritone. Singing alone, with his wife Orna, or in small gospel combinations, E.C. left behind some of the sweetest and most beautiful music ever recorded along that high ridge of mountains that run between Virginia and North Carolina. This reissue of the Balls' first Rounder LP is augmented by a 1972 radio show that vividly captures the warmth of their delightful personalities.
