CD Reviews

Cornell Univeristy Rocks!
Joseph Sanger | New York, NY USA | 08/08/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This really brings me back! These fellas were teaching assistants at Cornell University in the early 1970's ... when I was a nerdy engineering student. Now I'm a nerdy physician. I enjoyed the music then and I find it just as enjoyable now. I'm no expert on British folk music, but this is a nice album."
Finally on CD
CyranoRox | a garret over a moonlit street | 11/29/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"One of the best Brit Folk albums of all time, finally out on CD. I grew up listening to these guys at east coast folk festivals and clubs, and they did a lot of good stuff in the 70's but this first one is still the best, with all of your favourite Tony and John songs."
