Today's Album of the Week compiles performances recorded in the 1970s by Ola Belle Reed. It's called Rising Sun Melodies.
From Smithsonian Folkways: "Ola Belle Reed was a trailblazing force for women in bluegrass music, an Appalachian woman of hard-earned talent and generous ways who delivered honest music sung from the heart. Her songs 'I've Endured,' 'High on the Mountain,' 'My Epitaph,' and many others forge real-life experiences into music steeled with determination, family tradition, and commanding presence.
"[These] classic tracks ... remind us why the light of Ola Belle's music shines brightly to this day."
