Comments:

This album is nothing extraordinary but it definitely should not be overlooked if you're a fan of coffee-house simple folk melodies and acoustic guitar tuned songs. The songs here are catchy and fun like "As Blue as You" and "Happy Face" but there's also some substance in Ivor Game's songwriting. I like it :-). (RocketsTail@aol.com)
