Legacy: A collection of new folk music
Clint Potts | Arizona | 09/02/2004
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I first encountered Legacy in a friends dorm room in college. We were becoming huge fans of Windham Hill Records, then a very fledgling label. On your first listen, you are stunned by the diverse selections and artists. This is truly a fine sampler of "new folk" music, whatever that means. After hearing the disc a few times, I had to own it myself. And, as I grew to like some of the artists, I have since managed to collect a few of their individual works. Unfortunately, many of the artists seemed to get their one shot at fame on this disc, as assembling even one disc became impossible to find. Of particular interest are songs by John Gorka, Cliff Eberhardt, and an early work by Sara Hickman. I really enjoyed the fast and furious "Men and Women" by the destined for dustbin "Uncle Bonsai". The song is a hoot but I dare you to find even one more song they recorded anywhere. This disc made me realize that I didn't really hate folk music. I just needed a "new" spin. If you can find this one used somewhere, it is worth having in your collection."
Songs That Stick

"I listened to a "dubbed from a friend" tape of this album almost 20 years ago. No label other than "Windham Hill Sampler". I had the tape for a few years but eventually lost it.

I have been going over these songs in my head for the last 15 years or so without having heard any of them since then. I remember them so clearly it seems like I just listened to them.

I decided to finally buy it again since my tape ended halfway thru the second to the last song.

Might as well see how the album ends.

great music.
