When Dust-to-Digital released the box set Goodbye Babylon in 2004, Critics, the people that put out those Grammy Award things, and Neil Young took notice of one of the most visually stunning and most incredibly put together collections of gospel and early Americana that has ever been produced. My own personal discovery of the set has not only given me a continuing playlist of some of the most incredible songs ever put to record, but also gained an appreciation for pretty much everything Dust-to-Digital has produced since then.

Their newest release, Take Me to the Water: Immersion Baptism in Vintage Music and Photography 1890–1950 continues the tear the label has been on, as the book of photographs from late 19th to mid 20th century America is pretty much one of the greatest things I currently own.
