A Great Collection
(4 out of 5 stars)
"This recording caputures the true spirit of the show at the Wintertide Coffeehouse. From the opening notes of James Mee's "Big Times in a Small Town" to the Impromptu A Cappella Choir, the entire disk is joyous. There very few tracks that don't work. Among the true standouts are Cliff Eberhardt, Cheyl Wheeler, David Roth, John Forster, David Buskin and Peter Nelson. Eberhardt shows the power of his performance, both John Forster and David Roth will have you spliting your sides. Peter Nelson turns in a beautiful heart wrenching song called "Summer of Love" that leaves a huge lump in your throat. Many times you can get a compliation of wonderful artists that is nothing but clunkers. When Christine Lavin is involved you know that she will be selecting only the best. This collection should head your "must buy" list if your want to hear some of the best Folk/Accoustics artists working today."
A rare jewel

"This music warms my heart with both laughter and tears. In a society that accepts mostly mindless clatter over the radio waves, this album is as much a breath of fresh air as it was the day it was released. This is real music, folks. As real as it gets. There is no more to say, as it will speak for itself."
Spend a pleasant evening meeting new people.

"I'd not heard of these artists before I was given the tape, but I'm a Christine Lavin fan and was happy to give it a whirl. I will buy the CD when the tape wears out, which will be soon. It's mostly guitar-based solo performances, with a couple of piano pieces and several choral pieces to close out, though not nearly as stuffy as that sounds. The songs and performances are killer, whether humorous or moving. I laughed out loud at 'Dog Dreams', had a lump in my throat several times and want all my friends to hear this new jewel in my collection. One of the best albums I've ever heard."
