CD Reviews

Earliest memories
Chris McCrum | 05/18/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"One of the earliest musical memories I have in life was that of being at the Fox Hollow Folk Festival when I was a little girl. It was August 3, 1972, and I was five years old (I know this because I still have the little wooden dancing man my parents bought me and the date is on it). With that memory, came fragments of songs, and the name "Bob Beers". For some reason tonite, I decided to search on Google and was stunned to find that the LP I remember listening to ever since that festival, had been re-released on CD. I can't express how stunning it was to listen to these samples, of some of the most beautiful songs I have heard in my life, once again... it has probably been 25 years since I've heard these songs, and it brought tears to my eyes. It was profound to hear some of the very same songs which launched a life long love for music in my heart. This is a classic, for anyone who truly loves folk music ... though I doubt it will make you as mushy as I got :)"
They really were a family

"When I was a small boy, I used to listen to The Beers Family at their home in Petersburg, N.Y.. This album is just like those days gone by; warm, inviting, peaceful. The music is pure, the singers and musicians pouring forth all their love for the music and for each other. It is almost palpable. The unpretentiousness, the song being the focus, the evident joy with which they all sing and play truly make this recording a rare jewel. I only wish I could find the recordings they made each year at their annual bash, The Fox Hollow Festival! Buy this CD. Play it often."
Sheer Beauty

"For the sheer beauty of the human voice singing, this disc stands as an exquisite example. I believe this is healing for a fractured world, and Evelyn, Martha, and Bob Beers provide a welcome balm for wounded souls. Only a few of the songs are overtly religious, but all are testaments to the human spirit. The Beers Family makes me believe that the good, the truth, and the beauty in humanity will prevail. Now if Sony would release the albums they recorded on Columbia Records, I'd be even more grateful. Meanwhile, buy this before it disappears."
