John’s mesmerizing voice and superb guitar playing bring a depth and clarity to the familiar songs in a way that breathes new life into the music. The late John Reborn once described Smith’s approach as “the future of folk music” and this collection confirms that it certainly is in safe hands.

This is a great album by a great performer and you should have it in your collection. If this is indeed the future of folk music, bring it on!
