The last of a kind

"Mystic Moods Country is a re-release of "Country Lovin' Folk", the last of the truly easy listening MMO albums. Folk better describes the orchestra's selection of songs this time around. After this release the MMO went "new age" and the familiar lush orchestrations with environmental sound effects became a memory. If you like funky new age jazz tinted renditions of songs you never heard of before you might like the direction they took. Mystic Moods Country (Country Lovin' Folk) is one of the weakest of the orchestral MMO offerings, it is desirable if only for a better than average version of Joe South's "Don't It Make You Wanna Go Home" and to complete one's collection of the MMO's more listenable efforts."
Another Mystic Moods Gem

"This is the CD release of Country Lovin' Folk.It contains many songs not normally done instrumentally,including Frank Sinatra's "Cycles". They are all well done. I especially liked "Where Have All the Flowers Gone". This
rendition only adds to the niceness of the song. The original "Elusive Butterfly" was a dumb song. However, the MM was able to bring out the beauty of its melody.
