Imagine sitting in an intimate cafe just a few feet from Nanci Griffith as she sings "Love at the Five and Dime," or hearing a bluesy Tom Russell make his way through "California Snow" from a chair in your living room. That's the presence achieved on these baker's dozen tracks culled from the archives of "FolkScene," a long-running radio show on Los Angeles station KPFK. No chatter, no hosts, just dynamic live performances by singers and songwriters including folk Grammy winner Lucinda Williams, country-rock star Chris Hillman, and Tom Waits. There's a young Vince Gill with his trademark high tenor on "Good Woman's Love," but the most haunting performance of the collection is offered by Eliza Gilkyson, on the folk spiritual "Take Off Your Old Coat." You're bound to meet old friends and make a few new ones through the songs on this well produced collection.
