Easy on the ears and good for the soul

"Being a Greg Brown fan, I bought this album when it was first released, even though I had no idea who Bill Morrissey was, and I'm usually not interested in albums full of covers. This collection, though, has provided me with hours of listening pleasure. It's something like having two friends with deep, resonant voices come over and serenade you with old favorites and a few songs you might not have heard before. The mood is reflective, as the two artists seem to be singing songs which affect them, sometimes with humor, other times with poignancy. It can come off as a bit maudlin, owing to the number of bluesey songs. Some of the cuts really stick with you, particularly "Ain't Life a Brook" and "He Was a Friend of Mine," and I still laughingly tell people "he's been on the job too long," referring to the tragic characters in "Duncan and Brady.""
