"Seeing as how Mr Rice has already had an album of just him and his guitar (Church Street Blues) you would think that this album (as the title suggests) would be more of that. Its Not. In fact it sounds like Tony got into my head realized i hate Kenny G (alot), and decided to destroy some great sounding tunes with a some Sappy Saxy BS. I did give this record 4 stars because there are songs with that same ol' flavor. There's about 4 or 5 Gordan Lightfoot songs on it and they are all worth it. In fact just get the Tony Rice sings Gordan Lightfoot Cd (i promise its great if you know lightfoot or not.) and leave this album for the end of your Tony Rice collecting days."
Lightfoot meets newgrass

"So much more than just TR and guitar, this album falls somewhere between "newgrass" and folk. Included are songs by Dylan, Lightfoot, and Taylor along with one original composition, all presented artfully by Tony's voice and guitar. Guest musicians include Sam Bush and Jerry Douglas who, along with Tony, are arguably the best at what they do. If you could have only one Tony Rice album ... , aw, hell, who could choose? Just buy it. This is one CD you won't find in the "used" bin at your local record store."
One of the greatest recordings from the Master in his prime

"Okay.... Tony Rice plays on maybe a dozen of the greatest 25 or so Bluegrass recordings ever. His solo projects are almost all landmarks. This one would have to be among the top 4 or 5 of his solo projects. His vocals are warm and soulfull and expressive. His playing, as well as Douglas, Gaudreau, etc, are state of the art. Tony's guitar style is so stunning and influential that the Bluegrass World is now filled with guitarists divided squarely between "Rice clones" and "those who put as much effort as possible into NOT sounding like a Rice clone" - in other words, Rice is the benchmark. He is the "gold standard". This would be true if he were NOT a great vocalist (and pity that his voice has since gone), but it is no coincidence that, for example, on the many collaborations between Tony Rice and Ricky Skaggs - RICE is the "lead vocalist" and Skaggs harmonizes."
