AllMusic Review by

Legends/Emerald is a double-CD of acoustic ambient classics from the Narada label. Disc one -- Legends -- features Eric Tingstad and Nancy Rumbel at their romantic best. It is one of their first albums, and it set the stage for many glass ceilings to come.

Disc two -- Emerald -- is by Spencer Brewer and Tingstad and Rumbel. Brewer's light touch on the piano is the perfect accompaniment for the romantic adventures of Tingstad and Rumbel. The pace is neither slow nor quick. It is merely the pace. The soundscapes are full and lush. This double-CD comes with an awesome package and is an excellent starting point for an acoustic ambient collection, or for an introduction to the music of Tingstad and Rumbel.
