AllMusic Review by

Hammond was notable for a very distinctive vibrato and a nervous way of performing that is unlikely to win many adherents. However, he had a knack for finding unusual songs that still had many of their rural and historical roots intact, adapting them for performance with guitar. Some of the songs will be familiar to Irish music fans, but many more will be new to most listeners.
