Whenever Ian comes out with a new release, I am always anxious, anticipating that I will love it but worried I might not be crazy about it. I have found this especially true with his latest releases. It is always easier to recommend and sale the ones I love! This release was no different. I found myself listening to it with such emotion that it has not left my CD player since we got it in! From the haunting rendition of "Doney Gal" that opens the CD to my favorite song, "Jughound Ronnie", this CD has surprised and impressed me!
