Richard Shindell's latest offering should already be regarded as a folk classic. With artists of his talent around, it is difficult to understand why folk music does not receive the attention it did some decades ago. Shindell's songwriting is amazing. Each song is thoughtful and sung from the heart. Without doubt, the album of 2000. The CD features some vocal accompaniment from Shindell's buddies Lucy Kaplansky and Dar Williams, his collaborators in the Cry Cry Cry project, who add their distinct voices to the delightful "My love will follow you". There are too many good tracks on this album to single any out, warranting a place for it in any folk fan's collection.
