"This CD may still be available...if you're lucky. I wouldn't delay ordering it if you're any kind of Tracy Nelson fan at all. But last I heard, it is officially out of print, so time's a-wastin'.Having said that, I should add that this may be Tracy's most flawed recording in her 30-some year recording history. It's not bad, by any stretch of the imagination, but production-wise, it is far from perfect. On some tracks, her powerful voice seems muted, almost buried under the instrumentation (if that's possible!). The arrangements are actually a little too busy on some tracks, and it almost seems as though singer and band are in different rooms.However, there's scarcely such a thing as a bad Tracy Nelson album. She is one of the great singers of her generation, and it's shameful that her work isn't better known. Still, while I do recommend this CD, I would recommend that anyone who is not already familiar with this wonderous singer's work also order some of her other available product as well. For starters, try "The Best of Tracy Nelson/Mother Earth," "Tracy Nelson Country," any of the Rounder Records releases from the 90's or her most recent, indie effort, "Ebony and Irony."(And note that that's "Irony" NOT "Ivory"!)"
