AllMusic Review by

Hunter's beautiful and genteel version of Neil Young's "Expecting to Fly" is reason enough to seek out this EP, the perfect intro to the folky songbird's many moods: The traditional ballad, "Silver Dagger," is an old-time folk tune on which Hunter's voice is best put to use. Among the originals, the Brill Building/Beatlesy "Just Good Music" is most accessible, while a live version of "Middle of Somewhere" and the previously unreleased "Maybe the Heart," verge on the spare, avant-garde of latter-day Joni Mitchell.
