JSP's bargain-priced, five-CD collection is easily the most complete, essential collection of their music available, capturing and remastering their RCA Victor recordings (their later, less-seminal sessions for Decca and the American Record Company are not included).

This is just about 1/2 to 2/3 of the hundreds of records that the Carters made between 1927 and 1941.
