“The bands here, – mostly unknowns from the Cleveland area, still recording demos – sound like they’re each giving the performance of their lives. The sound of steel guitar strings and the clear strong voices of the singer-songwriters on this comp reminded me of what late night FM radio could be (in the mid-70s), a magical peaceful oasis of words and music.”
–  Jersey Beat
“Here’s proof that a rich and varied acoustic guitar scene survived the ’60s.”
