AllMusic Review by

Linda & Del have an easy manner and natural delivery to their hot jazz and back-porch old-timey songs that fit nicely with ragtime and jug bands. Their dozen original tunes bring traditions of the previous century up to the current one. The simple instrumentation is Del Goldfarb's acoustic guitar and Linda Michelet's percussion. Both sing, usually in phrase-trading duets. Drums and a few other suitable guest musicians on such things as washtub bass and washboard show up across the album. Two of the tracks are live from radio broadcasts.
