ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Acoustic Heaven!"-- Boston Globe
"Irresistible, melodic, sensual, folkie grit, and killer wit!"-- Washington Post
"The most sophisticated act in folk; acerbic, funny, plaintive, Buskin & Batteau are breathing new life into the genre."-- New York Times
Grammy-, Emmy-, Gold Record-sharing singer/songwriter/soloists David Buskin (piano) and Robin Batteau (acoustic/electric violin), from writing theme songs for Harry Chapin's Why?Hunger, Marlo Thomas's "Thanks & Giving" and "Free to Be a Family," Paul Newman's Hole in the Wall Gang Camp, Bill Clinton's 1992 winning Presidential campaign; performing hundreds of concerts for charities and non-profits; writing songs for and with Judy Collins, Tom Rush, Astrud Gilberto, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Peter Paul & Mary, the Oak Ridge Boys, Jane Olivor, Johnny Mathis, Anne Murray, Lucy Kaplansky; recording with Marc Cohn, Shawn Colvin, Bill Morrissey, Christine Lavin, Nanci Griffith, Josh White Jr.; jamming with Benny Goodman, Bruce Springsteen, YoYo Ma, Bonnie Raitt, James Taylor; they still call themselves "hopelessly romantic," "defiantly immature," and "usually hungry." So if music be the food of love, let's eat!

Splendid!
What an extraordinary CD! Their musicianship is terrific, as always, but their songwriting is what is truly exceptional. Some of these songs are uniquely outstanding. My personal favorites are WHEN I NEED YOU MOST OF ALL ; THE EYES OF MY BEHOLDER ; and THE BOY WITH THE VIOLIN, but there's a lot more to like and appreciate here, too.
