"Dixie Highway Sign" and "Step It Out Nancy" Recorded and mixed at Creation Studios, Bloomington, MN by Steve Weiss, Robin & Linda Williams, & Peter Ostroushko

1979, June Appal Recordings
The mission of this record company is to record music which carries on the folk traditions of the Southern Appalachain mountains. Robin and Linda could not have been more at home. Well versed in the old time country, gospel, stringband and ballad singing from their home region, they began to incorporate their songs into that tradition. The result was and is exciting. Original ballads like "Liza," "Murderers on the Cumberland Plateau," "Traded My Soul" and the riveting story of "Step It Out Nancy" fit hand in glove with traditional pieces like "The Johnson Girls," and jewels from Greg Brown, Russell Smith, David Olney and Butch Hancock, Peter Ostroushk's fiddle and mandolin playing is amazing.
