ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
A live album recorded in the early 90s, containing some interesting political humor from the years of Bush the First, a few potshots at consumerism and religion, and some beautiful simple ballads. Recorded in concerts around the U.S., this album is a real document of life on the folk circuit, and the simplicity of the production highlights the duo's remarkable vocal style and Don Haynie's incisive lyric writing.

"Charming...an album full of social commentary and satire...truly witty...touching... intelligent arrangements and good vocal harmonies...especially impressive."
WOODSTOCK TIMES Woodstock, NY

"The reigning king and queen of this not-so-traditional acoustic music...the social and political observations that pervade these songs had me howling--not just once, but through repeated listens...Haynie & Samuel's barbed delivery carries cruise missiles of satire across a wide territory."
THE DAILY FREEMAN Kingston, NY

"This 17-cut CD covers a lot of ground...political humor...observations about feelings and life...good jabs at religion...Well-performed and recorded...a good guitar, percussion, and two-voice folky sound that
presents their material well."
VICTORY REVIEW Seattle, WA

"The songs on the serious side showcase the simple pleasures found in the duo's musical talents, particularly Sheryl Samuel's lovely, clear voice."
DIRTY LINEN
