AllMusic Review by

Like the LP Just Dave Van Ronk, this is a mostly solo collection, though his approach is a bit more aggressive. He more deliberately uses the rough qualities of his voice to take on the characters that populate the songs. Some of the best of these elastic performances are "Dink's Song," "Hesitation Blues, " and "Come Back Baby, " which every budding guitarist in the '60s was obliged to learn.
