AllMusic Review by

Although it has been released on the Northernblues label and it does include a few blues, this outing by guitarist-singers Doug Cox and Sam Harris falls more into the folk music genre. Some of the tunes, particularly those using other vocalists (most notably "Grinning in Your Face") are haunting, some reveal great truths and insights about the world, and all of the music is heartfelt. There is an impressive amount of variety, ranging from Tommy Johnson to Duane Allman, with the originals sounding as classic as the more vintage songs. The talented Doug Cox and Sam Harris are well worth discovering by fans of both folk music and blues.
