"Greg Brown, probably the premiere folksinger in the Midwest, has a wonderful dark whisky voice, but it's a delightful surprise to get the chance to hear his songs performed via Prudence Johnson's crystalline tones. Prudence is a sometimes co-performer of Greg's, and (like many of us) an almost reverential fan, and this terrific disc superbly shows Brown's genius for songwriting. I almost like her renditions of "Just a Bum" and "Band of Gold" better than Greg's!"
High potential cut a little short by vocal range

"Prudence's voice is lovely and flexible on most of this fine disc, but she lacks the lower range for the bluesier numbers "Just a Bum" and "Who Woulda Thunk It," leaving an odd empty space which Brown would have filled with his quavering baritone. This probably could have been corrected by thickening and sharpening the drum and bass sound on these two tracks. Again, though, the rest of the disc is sometimes fabulous, especially her unhurried renditions of "Wash My Eyes" and "The Train Carrying Jimmie Rodgers Home." The entire band performance is also commendable, notably the pithy contributions from Dean Magraw and Peter Ostroushko."
