interesting review of “It’s a Hand-Me-Down”

Dan Fugate posted an interesting review of It’s a Hand-Me-Down. A couple of excerpts:

“This is for the word nerds, people who appreciate the way syllables lean against one another and the way a story is told. Words that connect with us to tell a story, but also to pull us from ourselves long enough to realize the words are about us.”


“These stories have been told and retold in nearly every way imaginable. Through Lonesome Prison Blues, I turned my father on to the Dead. It’s A Hand-Me-Down might be the bridge to the Dead for you or someone you know. Next time you’re hanging out with your music snob, grammar nazi friend (you know you’ve got one) throw on this CD and see if it changes their perspective just a little bit.”
