5.0 out of 5 stars Storytelling that everyone can relate to 3 April 2006
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is a beautiful album, an album that gets under your skin with music and with history. Cross folk, country and genealogy and this is where you end up - the music propels you back and forth in time, the lyrics make you wonder who you are, who your ancestors were, how they lived and died. Tom Russell is a hell of a story teller - just close your eyes and listen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Carrying the Folk Music art to a new level 27 Oct 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Tom Russell is a singer/songwriter on a par with Bob Dylan, Paul Simon, Nanci Griffith and Al Stewart yet his talent is so far recognised by only a faithful few. This record takes his art to a whole new level, being a song cycle based on his own family history and the story of his immigrant ancestors.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not one of his best 16 July 2013
By oldhasbeen VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a great idea for an album, but t o my ears it doesn't quite come off. There are some good tracks on it but a lot of weaker ones too, and I just cannot abide Iris DeMent's voice. Try "Borderland" or "Aztec Jazz" instead

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 28 Nov 2011
By purse
Format:Audio CD
This is one of those CD's that tells a story brilliantly. It is one to sit and listen to as the words and the story are so interesting. The recuring title song "The Man from god knows where" is very well used throughout.The best story album I've heard.
