Comments:

I like this album, though not as much as the studio album that preceded it. I would have liked them to rock out more and to collaborate more on covers of songs from their individual careers. "Red Dirt Girl" and "Boulder to Birmingham," for instance, don't sound very different from Emmylou's solo versions. (JoAnn Whetsell)
