CD Reviews

Folk pioneer's classic set reissued
Kerry Dexter | USA south | 07/23/1998
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I grew up with the music of Carolyn Hester, and this disc, a reissue of her third album, shows all the reasons why I'm still listening to her: that wonderful, unique voice (think Nanci Griffith with maybe a touch of Emmylou Harris or Claire Lynch); her willingness to explore and push the boundaries of the folk genre (there are blues and Greek music on this album, for example); her sense of humor; and impeccable taste in songs and how to present them in an involving way. Hester's always helped out the careers of other musicians, too. Notice the harmonica work-and those alternate takes featuring the harmonica? The player was Bob Dylan, in his first appearence ever on record."
