"I remembered this album by Patrick Sky from its original release in the 60s. Some of the tunes have stayed in my mind for decades. Hearing it again makes it all fresh......the sound of a talented rambler, a real folkie who was at the heart of everything that was going on in the Greenwich Village folk scene as it erupted. I knew Patrick at the time and remember both his humor and his natural, modest style. Those qualities are alive in this wonderfully satisfying album."
Patrick is still a hoot...

"...I was just digitizing this album from vinyl to trackable CD (wav.), when I thought I'd check Amazon to see if it had been re-released... and so it has! So I stopped the turntable... good thing as the album is scratched all to hell from being played too many times. (Warning: unabashed 'name dropping' to follow:)... Pat and Cathy Sky played a house concert at our house this past Saturday (9/5) with another folk icon of the mid-sixties Jim Glover (of Jim and Jean fame -- get that re-released album, too, if you like this sort of stuff!) It's an honor for me to have them as good friends and together in my home as I had learned guitar finger picking and 'harmony' singing from both of them. Patrick still sounds great, his stories are even better - listening to Patrick and Jim reminisce about those Greenwich Village days, where they knew each other, had my head smiling corner to corner. This first album is indeed a classic because it is just as 'listenable' today as it was 45 years ago... mainly because Pat's style is not so much '60's as it is 'old time'... true 'folk' music based on his experiences and influences of those times. Patrick (and Jim Glover) are both 67 years old, now, and they're both still kicking (and singing). Pat has been and is a superb Uilleann Pipes (Irish Pipes) player, and with his wife Cathy, who is a terrific Irish fiddler, have just recorder a new CD of traditional Irish tunes. Look for it soon. In the meantime, buy this album, and enjoy - I just did, ... and you'll be glad you did too."
