"If you like the folk music from the '50s and '60s like the Kingston Trio, The New Christy Minstrels, Peter, Paul & Mary, The Brothers Four and all the other great groups then you simply have to get this album. Apparently they are a little known group from New England but well know in that area. I just love the folk ballad style of the above groups. I don't know how I missed the Shaw Brothers back then in my misbegotten youth but I did. I stumbled onto them on a folk album tribute to America narrated by Johnny Cash that had a number of different performers. I was absolutely floored when I heard the Shaw Brothers. Their voices are still unbelievable even today. On this album they do some serious songs like Joan Baez (Who Speaks for Me)some light hearted stuff like I'D LIKE TO TEACH THE WORLD TO SING, KISSIN' FROG, DRINK UP THY ZIDER and THREE LEGGED MAN. GENTLE ANNIE rivals any ballad the New Christy Minstrels have done. My favorite folk album."

"It was such fun to gather in Prescott Park in the newly renovated Strawbery Banke area of Portsmouth and listen to these two all over again on a summer eve. As one of the concert promotions said about this scheduling of the Shaw Brothers, "Bring someone you love..." Absolutely right on; you can't help but get the most mellow listening to these two old friends. They are the best, and we are still impressed with their immense talent and wish them well. They are NH's ambassadors of good will and are still teaching the world to sing. Attend a concert and you can't help but begin to sing along. Always a great night when these two perform. Many more times, Rick and Ron!!!!"
