General comments:

Pat Johnson has worked with Penelope Houston at least since she began her solo career, writing songs with and for her, and playing on her albums. As far as I know, they have only done this one project as a duo, the limited edition Crazy Baby (five cuts from this album appear on Penelope Houston's solo release, Once in a Blue Moon). Pat Johnson is demonstrably a strong songwriter, and Penelope Houston a wonderful performer. Their collaboration, while pleasant, isn't as powerful as her solo work. (Neile)

Comments:

Note: five cuts from this album appear on Penelope Houston's solo release, Once in a Blue Moon.

This is an interesting collection of songs, rather like Penelope Houston's solo work, but perhaps a little softer/less-rocky than most of hers. (Neile)
