Entertainment Reviews:

Dirty Linen - p.48
"The years spent on the road are apparent in the coarseness in Andersen's voice, but his passion for these time-less tunes shines through in his powerful performances on this disc."
Mojo (Publisher) - p.114
4 stars out of 5 - "[E]ach piece is illuminated by Andersen's intimate understanding of its strengths. Many of these writers are now gone, but this loving tribute reminds us that the songs live on."

This is the first of a projected two-volume set by singer/songwriter Eric Andersen showcasing the songs of his youth, by some of its best-known as well as all-but-forgotten songwriters from the New York Greenwich Village scene of the early- to mid-'60s. There are modern versions of classics, like Buffy Sainte-Marie's "Universal Soldier," Bob Dylan's "A Hard Rain's Gonna Fall," Tim Hardin's "Misty Roses," Fred Neil's "The Other Side of This Life," and Phil Ochs' "I Ain't Marching Anymore." There are tunes that are now considered obscure, too, such as Paul Siebel's "Louise," David Blue's "These 23 Days in September," Patrick Sky's "Many a Mile," Peter La Farge's "Johnny Half-Breed." There's also a pair of originals, in the title track and "Waves of Freedom." Interestingly, in spite of all this company, the most convincing tune on the set is "Waves of Freedom" by Andersen himself. ~ Thom Jurek
