"This album, I believe the follow up to "There's a Light Beyond These Woods", displays Ms. Griffith's amazing ability to remain true to the roots of folk music. Such tunes as 'Heart of a Miner' and 'The Trouble with Roses' weave stories that are expressive in a way that can only be displayed by the ballads of this genre of music. I have always been a fan of acoustic based music such as has been recorded by artists like Emmylou Harris and Peter Rowan, even Richard Shindell. I don't absolutely love every track, but they are all pleasent to listen to and I think 'Workin in Corners' is arguably one of the best songs Nanci has ever recorded, although that is a hard choice, indeed. If you're looking for something uptempo, you probably won't find much of that on this album, but there is plenty of that on her more recent releases. I like the nostalgia of listening to these earlier recordings because of the honesty and simple quality of these songs. In short, if you love folk ballads and love songs with a story, then buy this album now! You won't find better."
Her best album??

"I have all of Nanci Griffith's albums and I keep coming back to this one. The songs are phenomenal: thoughtful, piercing and beautifully crafted. It is great to hear Nanci's voice without lots of electronic instruments.Julie Anne is probably my favorite on this album (and among my favorite songs from her).I'd highly recommend this calm, adult, pure folk album."
A must for any Nanci lover!
