  2. Negative: 0 out of 10
  1. The sound quality is astonishing.
  2. 100
    My Dusty Road is facinating as an archive set. [Oct 2009, p.120]
  3. 100
    The songs, six previously unreleased, range from good to outstanding, the sound quality as clear and natural as if he were singing in the next room. [Oct 2009, p.115]
  4. The first disc of the 4-CD trove provides the best comparisons, showcasing the troubadour's most familiar tunes ("This Land Is Your Land," "Pretty Boy Floyd") with vocals and picking that are rich and unblemished.
  5. 86
    This boxset--quite literally a suitcase--highlights four distinct sides of one of the most prolific icons of the pre-dylan era, and introduces both unreleased and released tracks to a new generation in themed installments. History is back in session. [Fall 2009, p.100]
  6. The set is both familiar and fresh-sounding at once.
  7. The overall presentation of My Dusty Road, however, falls far short of the standard achieved by The Asch Recordings.
