"I come back to this album time and time again. There's something about the music, the lyrics, that speak to me. The song "Lucky Shoe" talks of Barboursville, VA, "Welcome to Barboursville, the ruins are up there on the hill / Hold still for Jefferson, his ghost is there, his ghost has won my heart." The ruins of the house Jefferson designed there make a lasting impression, as if the place is indeed haunted by his spirit. "Busy Building" is a plea to Michelangelo who is "Busy building David, too busy for love". If only there were other CDs out there by September 67. Buy this album. It will hold a special place in your heart like it does mine."
Great cd - find one if you can!

"This is a great cd. There are some decent reviews of it already online just look! Hopefully Shannon & Kristin will sing together again. If not it would be great to see them involved in solo projects or a new group!"

"I bought this album, blindly, for a dollar at a secondhand store. It is one of the most pleasurable dollars I've ever spent. I'm usually into metal, rock, and things with more vitriol and power, but there is a strange haunting power about this album that runs strangely well with its folk-pop exterior. It seems femme and innocent at first, but if you pay attention to the lyrics and the throaty, girlish vocals, you begin to recognize a darker and deeper meaning.
Acoustic guitar and female vocals don't usually do it for me, but I find myself singing along with "Hazel Motes" and "Setting the Old House on Fire". The lyrics are immediately relatable. Some undefinable quality communicates between September 67 and the listener. On a more mundane note, this is great music to study or work to, or to sing to your cat when no one else is home.
This album isn't exactly popular or well-known, but that's a pity of poor marketing. Its lure spans genres. If you run across it, buy it on faith. You aren't likely to regret it."
