William Blake Covers
(5 out of 5 stars)

"A labor of love, not for his musical influences, but for some of the poetry that inspires Greg Brown's songwriting and his life. Sixteen of Blake's Songs of Innocence & Experience interpreted beautifully by Brown- I can no longer read the poems without humming the tunes. With exceptional guitar, mandolin, and violin arrangements, Browns barritone voice has more range than on more recent CDs. Brown has long been the voice of rural Iowa Joy, and rural Iowa Sorrow. Lucky to have one of us talking poetry along with the weather in the cafes. I listen to this CD as much as any of his others. One more thing- great CD cover with the Innocence of his sleeping daughter and almost refrigerator repairman Experience of Brown."
Really like it | Israel | 06/26/2001

"Although Brown has said in many interviews that he'd rather forget this cd, I really liked it and it made me like evn more Blake's masterpiece. It's naive and touching and different from brown's output in general, although his great voice is still here."
