I ordered this CD in the spirit of adventure following an accidental encounter on Amazon. In short it is absolutely brilliant. It is the first CD in a long time that I have played all the way through and then immediately on its finishing played again. The fact that Shawn Colvin sings harmony on the opening track helps of course. (The latter is to my mind the best Singer/Songwriter of the last two decades). But each track continues to build on the last. She is multi-talented. A beautiful voice and master of several instruments including the Banjo, Guitar and Piano. There is also a great deal of musical variety.
For the Audiophile, this record is superbly mastered and makes a great Demo Recording. For a change the recording has a clear clean and undistorted quality. A superb utilisation of Strings for backing.
Apart from Paul Simon's latest, this is the Record, thus far, of the Year.
