A shift from Rounder to Shanachie has not affected the music of the Blakes, which remains some of the most distinctive & satisfying in the field of acoustic music today. This beautifully recorded disc is as good as any yet put out by this duo, with a fine selection of songs and tunes including a few that feature the lovely combination offiddle and cello that are the highlights of all their records. Their medley of GREEN LEAF FANCY/FIELDS OF NOVEMBER/HUNTIN THE BUFFALO is one such piece and alone worth the price of the disc (even though these tunes have been down by the Blakes on other discs. Plenty of Norman's fine guitar work and plain but honest vocals. Fine work & reccommeded. WAITING THE BOATMAN, MR. GARFIELD, BRICKYARD JOE, SILENCE OR TEARS, WABASHCANNONBALL, MATTY GROVES etc.
