Longing for Old Virginia: Their Complete Victor Recordings (1934) is a compilation of recordings made by American country music group the Carter Family, released in 1998. It is the eighth of nine compilations released by Rounder Records of the group's Victor recordings.[1] The original Carter Family group consisting of Alvin Pleasant "A.P." Delaney Carter, his wife Sara Dougherty Carter, and his sister-in-law Maybelle Addington Carter recorded many of what would become their signature songs for Victor Records.[2]

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


In his Allmusic review, music critic Jim Smith said the release "... may not be the definitive Carter Family material, but they are all outstanding... Consistently enjoyable listening."[1] Kels Koch called it "Pure as a mountain stream and heartfelt as the day is long, these vintage performances encompass the evolution of an American songwriting tradition at its finest. From gospel to vaudeville to bluegrass, the roots of the Carter Family run deep and wide."[3] In his Country Standard Time review, critic Roy Kasten states "Like the preceding volume, most selections here are not the stuff of Greatest Hits, and for that they're especially worth savoring. Like the other seven volumes, these last CDs are essential to any country music lover's collection."
