By The Wolf TOP 50 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 13 July 2013
Format: Audio CD
Diana Jones has a fine voice and a keen instinct for a good tune.
Her new album, recorded with two sympathetic fellow musicians, Shad
Cobb and Matt Combs, in Peter's Cabin at The Museum Of Appalachia,
delivers eleven songs which reflect the craft she has been quietly
honing over her past four splendid releases. This is honest, stripped-
down songwriting of the finest caliber. There's really nothing which
could be either added or taken away which might make it more perfect
than it is. Some might think that having a log fire crackling away in
the hearth is a bit of a hokey idea but for me it adds another layer of
charm and authenticity to the project. It serves to further warm our hearts.

Ms Jones' voice is a distinctive instrument; a tad hollow and dry in tone
but utterly unaffected. With songs such as these there is no room at all
for fussy decoration and she certainly doesn't need any added reverb to
cover up the cracks like so many performers these days! It's a pure and
beautiful thing. She captures the spirit of Appalachia with joyful aplomb.

From the restrained call for forgiveness of opening number 'O Sinner'; the
subtle mixture of humour and pathos in the lyrics of 'Drunkard's Daughter';
through the delightful vocal harmonies filling up the gently bouncing
arrangement of 'Orphan's Home' and the sublime final acapella duet 'The
Other Side', the world she creates is never less than totally believable.

An album to save up for long, dark Winter evenings.

Highly Recommended.

Diana Jones is without equal in her field, her voice is a wonder in itself.
All the songs are quite superb, she is one of the very best songwriters around.
I did not think she could top her last album easily, but she has done it with this.
Buy it, enjoy it, and spread the word about this remarkable talent.

A simple stripped down collection of hauntingly beautiful music. Raw emotion is evident in every note. All records should be made this honestly.

Sort of Bob Dylan and a myriad of others of that genre. Absolutely loved this album. Bought after hearing on a Mojo promo. You listen once and put it on repeat. I felt really content listening to this album.

Wonderful atmospheric album, needs late night careful listening. Diana Jones who was new to me plays informally in a mountain shack with 2 other musicians playing acoustic instruments in front of an open fire so we are told.
You can feel the atmosphere the songs are strong and the approach to the Appalachia Music style is great.

One of those wonderful, if you like this try this moments, I did and was delighted.

This album is has the feel of love laughter and strife. Diana Jones has a wonderful voice that sings the genius of the mountains. There is sanity and sense in the way she sings.

Had only heard 'If I had a gun' up until this cd. Have played this many times since it arrived and continue to be rewarded from listening.
