"This is a great album, worthy of 5 stars, if not for the poor mixing and lack of engineering. TMW was a St. Louis band fronted by Alice Spencer, an amazing vocal talent. I would compare her voice to Janis Joplin's, but cleaner, more pure and more powerful. Sadly, this was their only release. Spencer's voice was a great match with this band and to date, her subsequent collaborations have yet to find as comfortable a home. After leaving TMW, Spencer switched gears and joined a folk/blues group The Geyer Street Sheiks. They have one album "Great Dream" (1994)on Bjam Records. Following the Sheiks, she went on to sing with The Barkers (~1999-2000?), and Victrola (kind of lounge/cabaret.) Several other ex-TMW members went on to form Tinhorn in 1996, and have two releases: "Adios-Exactly-Goodbye" and "Stereowide.""
TMW : a great start that ended too quickly.

"Too bad that we have only this album to capture this short-lived band. Alice Spencer hints at the possibilies her voice possesses. Her next "for something completely different" collaboration- Bjam Records release "Great Dream" brings those possibilities to fruition. Get it!"
Three Merry Widows -- amazing

"If somehow Janis Joplin and Fairport Convention had all grown up in Saint Louis and gone psychedelic, they might have produced something like 'Which dreamed it.' But they didn't, and here is this incredible group, pretty much unknown outside of StL.Imagine Edie Brickell and the new bohemians, and multiply X 4. Sprinkle a bit Irish music and a really great use of mandolin within a rock framework... nevermind, just get a copy and enjoy."
