My personal favorite of the PP&M series
(5 out of 5 stars)
"Of all the PP&M recordings, this one seems to overflow with emotion more than any of the others. Partly it's their performances, partly the selections. From the joy expressed in "When the Ship Comes In" to the pain of "Spring Hill Mine Disaster" it's all there. This recording has the intensity that is lacking in manyof their recent albums. If I could only keep one of their albums, this would be it."
A "real" folk music album
(5 out of 5 stars)
"I've always thought that American folk music should be music that expressed the heart and soul of our culture. Some music is wonderful by virtue of who sings it. Folk music can't depend on the singer. It has to be able to stand on its own no matter who sings it. Then it has a lasting quality.So there I was in 1960-whatever wishing I could be more than a highschool geek. I bought the guitar and soon found myself a singing highschool geek. But then I bought this album and learned these songs.Suddenly I wasn't as conscious of me singing. These songs were so heartful that even geeky me was stirred as I sang them. These songs were so full of soul - happy, sad, joyous. If there was agenda, "Ballad of Spring Hill" spoke of its heart. "Talkin' Candy Bar Blues" indeed spoke of all of our embarassments and confrontations (and dug up an historically important genre of song). "San Fransisco Bay Blues" is just plain fun - who cared if you just got dumped. "For Loving Me" - pure classic folk music about people and relationships we've all witnessed.Of all of PPM's albums, I have found this one over the years to be the truest to what American folk music was all about - songs that speak from the heart of our country."
A fine album

"A fine album, which in some ways represented this trio in a definitive way. A powerful, emotive record and worth buying for one track alone-a gorgeous version of Gordon Lightfoot's 'For lovin' me'. Other standouts are the excellent version of Dylan's 'When the Ship Comes In', 'Ballad of Spring Hill', 'Wasn't that a time' and 'Monday Morning'. It seemed at the time that they couldn't go wrong. An album that will always have a special place in my collection"
