Very catchy stuff
06/12/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"In my experience, CD collections of any genre tend to be a roller coaster ride - the listener is forced to sift through a significant percentage of mediocre numbers to mine the true gems. This disk, while not uniformly brilliant, is consistently entertaining and provides a good way to get turned on to some talented artists wallowing in relative obscurity. I'm a big Dave Alvin fan, and his track is my favorite on the record. This is a slow, achingly soulful acoustic number that departs from his barrelhouse rock leanings to great success. The Greg Brown and Guy Davis tracks are also standouts. I bought this CD for next to nothing - it was beside the cash register for about five bucks - but price aside, this is a keeper. I recommend it."
