Format: Audio CD
I'm a fan of acoustic / country / singer-songwriter music and I've been looking through Amazon to see whats available by Iain Matthews having heard he's one of the English acoustic country performers worth listening to.
Hadn't yet decided on which of his newer releases to go for and didn't want to start with 70's releases ( Plainsong ; MSComfort ) when I heard a track from this album being played on the Ian Anderson ( bbc radio scotland ) show among his favourite albums from 2002.
Probably the first thing to say about this album is that it's the product of three performers and writers : Eliza Gilkyson , Iain Matthews and Ad Vanderveen.
And the last thing to say about this album is it's pure acoustic singer songwriter heaven. An absolute delight. Influences are heavy in the air on some of the songs but when those influences are David Crosby , Daniel Lanois , Neil Young and Nick Lowe it all adds to the mellow acoustic sound , great singing , and songs which offer up more delights the more this album's played - which I expect'll be often.
Having now discovered the Perfect Pitch label I intend to check out more of their releases.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
An item I must admit I only bought given it features Eliza Gilkyson, performing together with Iain Matthews (of Southern Comfort fame) and a Dutch singer I know nothing about (Ad Vanderveen). The project seems to have developed out of all three having spent time together in the Netherlands and Texas and been financed by a certain Yvonne Ellenbaas, who may be the owner of teh Perfect Pitch label on which the CD is released.
With such talent on offer, the end result while well recorded is ultimately lacking in any real impact or energy. In large part this seems due to the fact that while song contributions are equally shared, the actual performances are very much solo and not "group" efforts with only limited back up singing and acting as support musicians to each other. Also, sadly the songs are not very memorable even if more group empathy did exist. Iain Matthews has shown before he is capable of much stronger songs and the Eliza items in two cases (Heart of a Man and Fall into the Night) have subsequently been much better recorded on her later "Lost & Found" release.
For die hard fans of the three performers only I fear.

3 gifted singer/songwriters 3 Oct. 2009
By J. Engels - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I knew all 3 of the singers to be great performers. Now (2001) they have joined and produced a beautiful album, with songs that are jewels in a crown. Each plays an own song in his/her turn and the others contribute vocals or instruments. This makes it a varied album with changing moods and topics, but as a whole it is a unity. Eliza sings some fine texts and Iain expresses his grief and bitterness, where Ad contributes some good songs. As a bonus some of the songs are added that were recorded live.
All in all I like this album and it makes some fine listening.

Eliza Gilkyson Masterpieces 27 Mar. 2007
By Kevin J. Roberts - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Don't let that other review discourage you. There are FIVE Eliza Gilkyson solo songs on this CD, and they are excellent. One is an early version of a song she recorded later with different lyrics. Several of these Eliza songs stand out as true masterpieces of her work, and are a must. The other singer's solo pieces are also worthwhile. But this item is a real rarity, and you should grab it while you can. Recorded circa 2001. Even one great work from Eliza is certainly worth the cost of the disc.
Exquisite 9 July 2004
By Music Fan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I cannot praise this recording enough. It is perfect. Each singer is strong and unique and yet they complement one another and harmonize together so beautifully. The songs are pertinent and timeless--and in closing with the title song, they save the best for last. The production quality is first rate, yet so unobtrusive you could imagine three good friends having a beer and singing and playing together in their kitchen. I love this recording from start to finish. Maybe someday it will be in wider release so more people can enjoy it as I have. Better get it while you can!
Not Just Eliza 3 July 2011
By Donald Vining - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The way this collection is presented by Amazon one might think it is an Eliza Gilkyson CD or that at least Eliza composed all of the songs. Neither is true, although she does sing 5 of her songs, all of which are all good ones. I don't like to deduct stars because of the way a product is marketed, but this is just a little much!
