A laid-back masterpiece, David Berman rolls out not only some of his finest sleight-of-word lyrics but the kind of flawless melodic songwriting that puts this record in the same class as other atavistic masterpieces as Dylan & The Band's The Basement Tapes or The Everly Brothers' Roots. Witty and subtle, indulge yourself in the work of a true American artist.
