"Slaid Cleaves has come into his own lately with the successful releases of Broke Down and No Angel Knows. Both are outstanding albums and well worth having. This one, the Promise, was recorded in the late 80's when he was first starting out. In fact, it includes a bunch of songs done with his original Portland, Maine band the Moxie Men. The CD is properly titled as it displays the promise of excellent songwriting, singing and musicianship that Slaid has since delivered upon.Unlike his newer recordings, the Promise portion is done in a very folkie style without much instrumentation. The Moxie Men were a full band on the bar circuit and that's what you get in that set. I recommend this to anyone, if you're a Slaid fan its a must."
