CD Reviews

You've got to have this one
mike holtzclaw | Newport News, Va., Virginia USA | 05/21/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Nanci Griffith has made so much fine music that it's hard to pinpoint her best album -- but this one's got to be near the top of the list. Every song is a beautiful little story, with Nanci's unmistakable voice bringing passion and sincerity to each tune. If you're a Nanci fan and you don't have this one, shame on you. And if you're looking for an introduction to this wonderful artist, start with this one and the two "Other Voices" discs and go from there. A real gem."
Nanci's best ever assembly of songs
mike holtzclaw | 10/02/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I have been a Nanci fan for almost 15 years and this is my all time favorite CD. Here Nanci sings some of her best written songs ever as well as a few by selected artists such as Eric Taylor and Bill Stains. The Blue Moon Orchestra was better back then befor they became "synthesized". Just good pure folk-a-billy music coming from one of the most honest singer/songwriters of our time. A must for your collection!"
Songwriting at its very best
Michael D Johnson | Elgin, Illinois United States | 04/25/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I second all the other reviewers. To me, I find that this album puts Nancy Griffith in an exclusive class among the very finest of songwriters of our time. "Ponchartrain" does something few writers can do: write eloquently about the love of place, and to do it with melody that carries the words as freely as the spirit in those words. I WANT to see Lake Ponchartrain someday because of this song. There is so much going on in these lyrics... setting the scene with that other French-American locale, Montreal, and, like a lover who finds absence makes the heart grow fonder, realizes she must go back. In short, a simple sounding tune that is layered with a lot more than meets the ear initially. "Love's Found A Shoulder", is like diamond-cutting-- so exact in word choice that that the reult is so beautiful you cant really see the effort that went into it. Some day, as others have said, I really hope this writer gets a wider respect. Those of us who have found Nancy Griffith's songs know already that we have a found a true musical artist. I simply don't know of a better songwriter, regardless of genre or gender."
