"Archie Fisher has come a long way since his first albums decades ago in Scotland. He has always had a strong following in Great Britain and in Canada, but somehow is not well known in the US. That is our loss.
Several years ago I had the opportunity to see him perform in Palmer, Alaska in a little coffee shop packed to the eaves with Alaskans in love with the music of Scotland and Ireland. He mesmerized us all, the fisher capturing us, like salmon in the sea in his musical nets. Fisher is no longer young and when he sings and talks it is with the wistfulness, the humor and the wisdom of a long life. These are not all songs that he wrote, but they are all songs that he brings to vibrant life. This is an album that is fresh and alive; the music of a modern balladeer. One could believe that Fisher is sharing the loves, the lessons and the trials of his own life. That is what makes for great talent and astonishing musical experiences. To listen to this album is to explore the universals of the human experienc. Fisher is a huge talent and this is an album which allows us to savor that talent."
