What is surprising to me is that I listened to this all back in 1999 ... Hart had put the whole album up (in RealAudio files to make them harder to steal) on his web site (http://granthart.com) and I surfed through the variuos cuts and didn't think much of them. Perhaps this is why I don't download much music ... somehow, I just can't get into listening to music from my computer ... I'd rather pop a CD into my desktop stereo sytem and play it over and over (until I get sick of it). Sometimes it take 5-6 play-throughs for me to connect with an album, but in this case I liked it from the get-go.
Anyway ... I haven't been reviewing music here as much as I'd like, but I thought I'd pass along the recommendation on this one. Amazon still has it in stock at full retail, but several of their new/used vendors have it "like new" for under a buck (that's what I did ... paid $3.44 with shipping!), which is a good deal on a good album.
