A friend lent me a copy of this to listen to. Having never heard of Josh Rouse and having lots of other music to keep me occupied, I didn't get round to putting it on for a few weeks, but when I did I found it instantly appealing. I listened to it again the next day, then twice the day after, by the end of the week I was hooked. Can't quite put my finger on what it is about this album, after all the lyrics aren't particularly groundbreaking, but his distinctly soothing voice and lovely guitar work make this album a pleasure to listen to. I've played it so much over the last year or so now that it will go down as one of those pieces of music that difines a period in my life.
I saw him play live in a small intimate club a few weeks after getting into this album, he covered most of the tracks from 1972......it was one of the most satisfying gigs I've ever been to.
