Gove Scrivenor's follow-up to 1988's Coconut Gove is a solid yet non-revelatory release. Scrivenor's rendition of Townes Van Zandt's "If I Needed You," with guest vocals by Lari White, is a rather faithful rendition and makes for one of the stronger tracks here. Nanci Griffith guests on the title track and John Prine makes an appearance on an excellent take on the Bob Dylan classic "Girl From the North Country." Apart from these moments, and some nice Scrivenor-led autoharp and mandolin instrumentals, there are some decidedly nondescript tracks. One wishes Scrivenor would break out the autoharp a little more often, as a good deal of the material, while being very solid, has a somewhat homogenous sound. Still, there is more than enough here to keep the Scrivenor fan satisfied.
