sandstone chimbley and a puncheon floor

after listening through Harry Smith (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harry_Everett_Smith)'s Anthology, the track that stands out foremost in my memory is this Al Hopkins song 'West Virginia Gals', "off" in a different way than the Afropop or the Martin Rev certainly but there's still something about the vocal delivery here that is hard to imagine hearing in more recent (= post-1920's?) American recordings..

i found a full streaming track here:

first time i've gone to rhapsody.com so i don't know what problems might cause anyone; alternately Amazon has a 30 sec. sample here:
