Anchored in Love: Their Complete Victor Recordings (1927–1928) is a compilation of recordings made by American country music group the Carter Family, released in 1993. It is the first of nine compilations released by Rounder Records of the group's Victor recordings.[1]


The original Carter Family group consisted of Alvin Pleasant "A.P." Delaney Carter, his wife Sara Dougherty Carter, and his sister-in-law Maybelle Addington Carter. All three were born and raised in southwestern Virginia, where they were immersed in the tight harmonies of mountain gospel music and shape note singing. A.P. traveled around the southwestern Virginia area in search of new songs, resulting in many traditional songs being copyrighted in his name.[2]

In August 1927, the trio made the journey from Maces Spring, Virginia to Bristol, Tennessee to audition for record producer Ralph Peer who was seeking new talent for the relatively new recording industry. They received $50 for each song they recorded.[3] Peer later had the group travel to Camden, New Jersey, where they recorded many of what would become their signature songs.

"They wandered in. He's dressed in overalls and the women are country women from way back there. They look like hillbillies. But as soon as I heard Sara's voice, that was it. I knew it was going to be wonderful!"

Although A. P. could play guitar and fiddle, and did so on their radio shows, he never played on their recordings.[2]

The tracks have all been digitally remastered and include liner notes by country music historian Charles K. Wolfe.

In his Allmusic review, critic Ron Wynn stated, "The Carter Family's sessions are seminal country music, raw and wonderfully unsophisticated with an emotional directness and honesty that makes a mockery of the slick, overproduced rock/folk now being marketed as country."[1] Music critic Alana Nash stated, "When Sara lets loose with her straightforward, heavily accented soprano ("cwar" for choir), surely the angels in heaven take note."[5]
