Reviewed 2023-03-21 

A promotional grab bag of acoustic (& mostly acoustic) music in a variety of styles. Note that tracks 4 & 5 are switched on the jacket info.

FCC clean

1 * Slow. A gorgeous solo concert performance of a hit from McLean’s American Pie album, stripped down to just voice & acoustic guitar. Applause at both ends. (4:38)
2 Mid-fast. Southern-fried blues rock with piano, harmonica, horns. (4:49)
3 * Mid-tempo. Good neo-trad country true with a lonesome, melancholy lyric. (2:55)
4 * Mid-fast. Humorous, faux-hick song about making the best of a bad situation. (3:13)
5 ** Mid-tempo. Sweet country love song about appreciating a simple, happy life. (5:24)
6 Mid-fast. Singer-songwriter folk rock. Male singer. Pleasant, but just ok.(4:35)
7 Slow. A Kate-Wolf-like folk feel. Female singer, guitar, hand drums, wood flutes. (3:33)
8 Mid-tempo. Gee, kids sure grow up fast. Aw shucks, is this ever corny. (3:41)
9 Mid-fast. An old novelty song done in a goofy old-timey manner. (2:21)
10 ** Slow. Emotional singer-songwriter country rock with nice pedal steel. (4:07)
11 * Mid-fast. Growly Dave-Van-Ronk-ish rootsiness. (3:25)
12 Mid-slow. Folk song about meditating in the woods. Dylan-like harmonica. (3:42)
13 Mid-tempo. A pointless story about listening to a battle of the bands. (3:57)
14 * Slow. Folk ballad about a lonely woman in NYC. Intriguing instrumentation. (5:05)
15 Mid-tempo. Bouncy country-folk with fiddle. Band is good; lyrics are shallow. (2:30)
16 * Mid-slow. Sweet, loving folk song; nice female lead & male harmony voices. (2:59)
17 Mid-tempo. Sounds almost like old-time skiffle music; it didn’t move me. (3:06)
18 ** Slow. Singer-songwriter ballad about drawing strength from mountains. (4:05)
