Some find the Texas thrush a bit precious. (Maybe it's the way she sings "When I woke up this mawwwwwnin'" on this album's "You Were on My Mind"). Still, the sequel to her popular Other Voices, Other Rooms provides an easy-to-take introduction to some classic folk songs and performers. The likes of Lucinda Williams, Richard Thompson, Jimmie Dale Gilmore, and John Prine add depth and range to the good-natured song swap. --Steven Stolder

"There are 73 minutes in this cd, but it could have been a much better cd at 50 minutes, some songs are great, others just are not so good, not enough to be in a CD. But this cd will always be important for collectors, in it you'll find the best version of Guy Clark's Desperadoes waiting for a train, with a cast including JJ Walker, JD Guilmore, S Earle, Guy Clark,
other in this cd include Lucinda williams, Tom Russell, Richard Thomspon, Ian Tyson, a great cast of songwriters and singers."

"I've been a Nancy Griffith fan since her first recordings on Rounder Records and have seen her live more times than you can shake a stick at. When she left Rounder for the big time, I wasn't all that impressed. Fame, apparently, has it's costs. But time has treated her well and I really like this album. It has a ton of variety in both its songs and the musicians that participated. Nancy's voice is aging to perfection, with less of the cutesy nasality than in her youth and more body to the tone. This is a fun album of folk classics."

"This recording, and its fine prequel, Other Rooms, Other Voices, has resorted my faith in folk music and sent me in search of other music by writers of these great songs. I find incredible, the criticism of this recording. So Nanci affects some voices in spots and maybe it wasn't quite what we expected. That doesn't detract from the many, many wonderful songs she's given us. In support, she doesn't offer a bunch of golden-throated, Nashville slicks; instead, they're a who's who of folk singer/songwriters trying to capture the feeling of the songs without doing multiple takes; it sounds very live--even a little rough--as we might expect from folk music. They've clearly succeeded in their delivery. I'm delighted by several songs I'd not heard before: Ian Tyson's "Summer Wages" and the Rush/Von Schmidt tune "Wasn't That a Mighty Storm"--as well as songs I've heard, don't know where, whose existence I'm glad to remember: "Walk Right Back" (has a love left you?--listen to this), and "I still miss someone" (a heartbreaker if any)--and old favorites well delivered in "Deportee" and "If I had a Hammer." Nanci, of course, recruited nothing but the best musicians (and songwriters) to back these up as evidenced by the fine dual guitar of Clive Gregson and Doug Lancio on "Wall of Death," the turn-of-the-century sounding slide on "Storm," the soulful singing of Tom Russell on "Summer Wages" and the ethereal backing vocals on "Yarrington Town." I've had this recording for a couple years now and haven't yet tired yet of these fine songs and their fine delivery. Thank you, Nanci Griffith for putting together all these wonderful songs for us to enjoy."
