"Of all the cds I have by Norman Blake, with or without Nancy, this is without a doubt my favorite. Every track on this cd is a gem. The arrangements are simple and unadorned, and therefore incredibly effective. There's a minimum of overdubbing here -- this is pretty close to what these two sound like in performance.The recording quality is superb, and adds immeasurably to the overall enjoyment of this wonderful music. There are great stories told here, there is pathos and humor side by side. From the very start of 'Little stream of whisky' until the last notes fade away at the end of the disc, this music is pure and uncluttered -- the playing is right 'on the fret' and the vocals complement the songs perfectly.With the current interest in 'Americana' music, Norman and Nancy Blake's catalogue is a treasure-trove that I hope many people will discover. One of my favorite acoustic albums of all time, this is a classic."
