Well worth a listen
06/14/1998
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Couple spotty tunes, but otherwise this is an *outstanding* collection. All tracks were recorded live as part of the FolkScene program at KPFK in Los Angeles. The sound quality and intimacy of the recordings is absolutely wonderful. You come away with a sense of being in the studio."
Wonderful Collection

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Taken from the archives of THE west coast folk radio show, this Cd Anthology is worth the price of admission if only for the inclusion of the John Prine tune. A sharp performance by guitarist extraordinaire Richard Thompson and Nashville-based ex-Blaster frontman Dave Alvin ("Barn Burning") up the ante, but the real gem here is Iris Dement's acoustic version of her own "Our Town." Her wondrous, vibrato-draped tenor shines in any environment, but in the context of this solo live atmosphere, her slightly-sped up performance is chilling, forcing the listener into a first-person point of view. This collection is essential listening for anyone interested in modern-day folk music."
