Live Modern Folk Music at its Best
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Fans of Wes can't live without this live record. It is a must-have for all. Early versions of "The Devil in Me" and "Who You Really Are" as well as brilliant spur-of-the-moments songs like "July the 13th, 1985" and the 'acapulco number' "The Night He Took Her to the Fairground" are only to be found on this album. I enjoy it from beginning to end every time I listen to it."

"JWH's debut album is a live, acoustic show recorded in 1990 (?). Not entirely sure.It's wonderful, for anyone who likes melodic folk with great lyrics. "If you were my country, baby, you know that I'd enlist." Just a typical line from the many incredible tunes on this record.Musically, it's a man with a guitar. That's it. No frills, no enhancements. JWH is a good guitarist and a sunny, clear, emotive vocalist. The song structures echo American folk more than British folk, so people expecting a Richard Thompson clone are in for a big and pleasant surprise.What can I say about this record? He's brilliant, with incisive, literate lyrics and clear, compelling melodies and playing. Awesome. Buy it. Oh and, by the way, you can't beat his cover of Prince's "Kiss." Playful and stellar.Buy it and enjoy it."
