Show NotesGoing Up On the Mountain (ACD-39) is the first Acoustic Disc release by Jody Stecher, a Grammy nominated singer and instrumentalist who is regarded as one of America's leading traditional folk artists. Comprised of two highly acclaimed releases from the 1970's, Going Up On the Mountain and Snake Baked Hoecake, this disc is attractively packaged with new photos and liner notes.
