CD Reviews

Nostalgic, literate Folk-Rock
(4 out of 5 stars)

"A great sad epitaph to the literate folksinger Richard Farina. The songs are sometimes dated but many still retain a stark beauty that is timeless. The darkly orchestrated "quiet joys of brotherhood" and jaunty "pack up your sorrows" are classics. Mimi Farina' s voice matched the etheral beauty of the wonderful cover photo. The dulcimer and guitar interplay is warm and intimate especially the tracks recorded at the duo's Newport Folk Festival appearance. The album stands as a final monument to Richard Farina's talent and a sad reminder of what was lost when Farina died in a motorcycle crash in 1966. Christopher Charpentier."
