1986 Original Label Pressed On Pure Virgin Vinyl With Custom Inner Sleeve. Features Bela Fleck, Mark O'Connor, Lyle Lovett And Others. Her Fourth And Final Release On Rounder's Folk Subsidiary Label. 4 1/2 Stars In All Music Guide. Glossy, Unplayed Condition. “At The Time Griffith Relocated To Nashville, TN, Her Decidedly Texan Sense Of Musicality Had Already Begun Developing Subtle Hues Of Appalachia As Well As The Cosmopolitan Country That Would Inform Her Mid- To Late-'80s Stint On MCA. However, It Is The Overwhelming Strength And Conviction In The Singer/Songwriter's Original Material On The Last Of The True Believers That Remain Indelibly Impressed Upon Enthusiasts And Critics Alike. As Such, Griffith Has Retained A Copious Sampling From The Disc In Her Subsequent Live Performance Repertoire. Griffith's Crystalline Vocals Are Well Matched To The Warm, Earthy Acoustic Instrumentation On The Intimate "More Than A Whisper" And "The Wing And The Wheel." At Times, The Delicate Interplay Creates A Mutual Envelopment Of The Human Vocal Instrument With That Of The Stringed Nature -- Most Notably On The Heartfelt "Love At The Five And Dime." By Way Of Contrast, Griffith Defies Her Somewhat Introverted Image On The Tongue-In-Cheek (No Pun!) Love Song "Looking For The Time (Workin' Girl)" And The Effervescent Waltz "Love's Found A Shoulder." Lying Nestled Between Are Spry Melodies Such As "Banks Of The Pontchartrain," Featuring Some Nice Picking From Béla Fleck (Banjo), And "Goin' Gone," Which Perfectly Captures Some Of Lloyd Green's Finest Pedal Steel Work On The Disc.” Lindsay Planer, AMG.
