"My impression of Tommy Peoples was formed by his early albums, which are charismatic and passionate, but sometimes rather rough-hewn. He's mellowed with age: he still has the passion, and the mastery of his instrument, but the "stutter" that characterized his style (and, I felt, sometimes got in the way of the tunes) is now used more discreetly for emphasis. I saw him perform recently (at one of the small "house concerts" on his current U.S. tour), and this CD conveys the feeling admirably. Many of the tunes are Peoples' own compositions, and range from the lovely title tune (played as both a slow air and a jig) to the funny "The fat cat" to the melancholy "The coffin ships." His renditions of traditional tunes are flawless, too, notably the somber "The green fields of America" set. This CD is more readily available in the U.S. now that Peoples has arrived with a trunkload of them, and I'm enjoying it thoroughly."   by P. Lozar
