AllMusic Review by

Hunter is one of the few singers from the United States who can bring off a British-influenced brand of folk and folk-rock fairly convincingly. Finders Keepers is about as close to "folk" as "folk-rock"; there are no drums (although there's percussion), and there's occasional mandola, recorder, and accordion. About two-thirds of the set is interpretations of material from various sources, including Bob Dylan, Stephen Stills, Buffy St. Marie, traditional tunes, and even "Tumbling Tumbleweed." Hunter was based in San Francisco for many years, and her spare arrangements recall those of Penelope Houston's late-1980s and early-1990s albums, although Houston had a much more prominent rock base.
