Album Notes
FATHOMLESS TALES FROM LEVIATHAN\'S HOLE is an eclectic assortment of altruistic stories. For the most part, these are unabashed admissions of humanness; acknowledgments of vulnerability, and confessions of fallibleness from everyday people like you and me - written to celebrate the strong and courageous.

Oliver di Place Review
Sometimes, the secret to a great arrangement is knowing when to stop. Phyllis Sinclair’s Washerwoman’s Lament was clearly written on acoustic guitar, and that’s the first thing you hear. Sinclair plays a rhythmic strum, and her vocal line has a wonderful folk-gospel feel. Eventually, a mandolin and bass part come in, and there is even some background vocals towards the end. And that’s all. Elsewhere on this album, there are some drums, some strings, even accordion. But Washerwoman’s Lament opens the album, and it establishes that Sinclair is going to use a light touch with her arrangements. This works beautifully throughout, but nowhere better than here. (Incidentally, it’s not clear who did the arrangements on the album. They may be by Sinclair, or producer Stew Kirkwood, or both.)
