The best of Greg's old-school work
thisnicknameisnottaken | 05/17/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This was the first of the Red House Records catalogue to be re-released on CD, and it's evident why from the very first listen. While Greg's sophisticated, sparse yet endlessly emotive instrumentation is still years away from this album, in my opinion his vocal performance here is his best recorded one ever. Period. On this album, he can move listeners to tears lines as simple as "We're gonna miss you" and "Who do you think you're fooling?"; he can turn "I'd like to buy you the world's biggest bathtub" into one of the greatest love lyrics of all time. Those expecting Greg's usual sharply (sometimes painfully) perceptive commentary on life will not be disappointed; even the once-rejected bonus tracks are 5-star performances.And the music, pre-Dream Cafe though it may be, is the perfect accompaniment. With warm, friendly-sounding guitars, harmonicas, accordians, and mandolins all getting in on the action, it sounds like a group of friends getting together on someone's back porch in Iowa to kick out those folky, folky jams. (Which, apart from the back porch in Iowa part, it probably was).I know three people who got married to tunes on this CD - isn't that enough recommendation for you?"
A dark cd | Israel | 06/19/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is quiet and dark cd, remindfull of Tom Waits in the 70's. Although not in par with "Dream Cafe" and "Poet Game" and his output in the 90's, Brown was already a great singer-songwriter in the 80's, as a matter of fact, he was already a master in his genre. If you already have Poet Game and Dream Cafe, then you'll want this one too. If not start by them and then decide if you want more Greg Brown cd, I think you will."
I own 12 Greg Brown CD's and this is my favorite one! | 07/29/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Greg Brown is probably my favorite singer-songwriter. This CD is perfect for late-night snuggling with your sweetie, driving down the road, or anytime at all. This is one of his greatest masterpieces. If you ever have an opportunity to see him play live - don't miss it! He embellishes old songs with new touches and stories, and is sure to make you laugh."
