CD Reviews

After all these years it's still great!

"Jim Ringer and Mary McCaslin sang duo's at their live concerts and this album reflects that.If you like slightly country based folk, you'll love this.I used to hire them to sing in Hartford, Connecticut at the Sounding Board back in the late 70's. They always drew large crowds. For some reason I think personal problems overwhelmed them and they slowly lost popularity. By 1990 they had disappeared from the folk circuit.This album is highly produced with a lot of different backing instruments including drums.It's a very lively album for the most part. Even though the words might be sad ones, most of the tunes are lively and the beat also is.I can't compare this duo to anyone else. It was a favorite of mine when first released in 1980 on vinyl. Now, thankfully, Rounder has re-released it on c.d.I play it all the time on my folk music radio show on WWUH FM in Hartford."
Excellent stuff!

"I've loved Mary McCaslin's solo stuff for several years now, and I was excited to hear this was being re-released this year. I was not disappointed. In fact I was very, very pleased. It was actually much better than I expected. With the possible exception of 'Hit The Road Jack", every other cut on this disc is a keeper. Some of them are just flat out fantastic, especially the covers of the old country standards "Lonesome Road" and "I Don't Believe You've Met My Baby". I'd say this disc is a "must have" for fans of solid country folk music. It's one of my favourite purchases of the past year."

"These two artists sound very good together. Good song selection, and instrumentation. Contains a definitive version of "Geronimo's Cadillac". A GOOD BUY!"
