This is a joyous album with the extended McGarrigle clan making musice and having a great time. This may sound as if The McGarrigle Hour is a little self-indulgent but it truly isn't.
Kate and Anna are timeless and on this album they are joined by their chidren, their spouses (current and ex) and friends, well-known and otherwise. The choice of songs is eclectic but very satisfying. There is something for everyone and something to suit every mood. If you get the opportunity you should see the McGarrigles live but this is certainly the next best thing.

The cd is just average for such iconic country folk as Kate and Anna. They were having a great time doing this with family and Emmylou, maybe I just expected too much.

Well the truth is that this is a somewhat self/family indulgent affair, something which the McGarrigle/Wainwright clan, and the Richard/Linda Thompson Dynasty are getting a little too proficient at.That being said this is still an excellent album which starts off with a superb version of the sublime Loudon Wainwright's "Schooldays".From then on it's a hit and miss affair with some brilliant songs and some over the top ones. I share another reviewer's position of being not overly enamoured of Rufus Wainwright's singing style whilst believing that his father can do no wrong!!!So, something of a mixed bag but you've still got to have it!!!...

I was unaware of the McGarrigle sisters before seeing them on Transatlantic Sessions on the Ovation Channel. I was also unaware of the connection between Annie McGarrigle and Loudon and Rufus Wainwright (ex-wife, mother) until I purchased this CD. This family affair CD represents the best in traditional music, incorporating such standards as "What'll I do?" with even earlier songs such as "Alice Blue Gown" and the extremely poignant "Gentle Annie." These songs really do take the listener back to an idealized past, in much the same way the early Randy Newman did in songs such as "Dayton, Ohio." The era the songs come from may not really have been that simple or innocent, but it's easy to be lulled by the McGarrigles into believing so.
The males in the family don't come across quite as splendidly, and contribute to a bit of uneveness on the compilation. This is particularly true of Rufus, a very good performer in his own right, but not featured to great effect here. The chemistry song and "Heartburn" come across as contrived attempts at cleverness, especially when contrasted with the abundance of great understated material on the rest of the CD. Loudon does contribute to one of the true highlights of the sessions in his duet with Annie on "Young Love." It's the best rendition of the song I've heard.
In all, this is a heartfelt outpouring of song from an immensely gifted family of musicians. If one didn't believe in the power of genes before hearing this CD, one listen is enough to convince.

I bought this after hearing one of the tracks on the radio. I like that one track, but the rest of it is not to my taste.
