Subject: I have found a CD that I think you would enjoy
A sadly undiscovered gem

(5 out of 5 stars)
"Larry Kaplan's debut (and, so far, only) cd is a treasure chest full of some of the most finely-crafted songs in modern folk music. His background as a respected folklorist further solidifies the feeling of reality found in these songs -- stunningly painted portraits of life in the North Atlantic seaboard states. The characters and situations portrayed here spring to life, but gently, pulling the listener quietly into the stories and lives of New Englanders real and imagined. His songs have been covered by the likes of Gordon Bok, Cindy Kallet, and other well-respected practitioners of this genre. At 70+ minutes, every single track is a 'keeper' -- one can only wish that Mr. Kaplan (a practicing pediatrician in CT) had more time to devote to his music. I cannot recommend this recording too highly. And God bless Sandy and Caroline Paton of Folk Legacy for having the good taste and faith to release this disc."
