This album interleaves the songs with their introductions, so quite a lot of talking. But his Intros are absolutely wonderful, and are either touching or very, very funny (or both), so I never skip them (which you can do easily if you want to because they are on their own tracks).
Well recorded, great quality sound and well performed (you'd not know that they were live).
Songs are first rate, he's picked a good selection of his earlier stuff, including the Waking Hour which won the Lennon award. I am not a dye-hard folk fan, but this is a gem — from the mellow to the livelier. I play this so often...

This is as close as i'll get for now, and it works brilliantly.
The music is David singing with his friend Shane Sampson on guitar, and it is a crisp, bright recording. The vocals-only Torn Screen Door is big and powerful, while other tracks are softer, or rollicking.
Excellent work from an excellent musician, and the personality behind it all shines through warm and gentle.
Buy all his music. He is a gentleman. He is a true original!
