Reviewed in FRETS magazine, August, 1988:

...Weed pulls it off with flair...all acoustic pieces, featuring Weed''s rich fiddle tone and sprightly mandolin. Especially high flying is his uptempo duet with Grisman on "Western Kingbird." Excellent production and recording, and some adventurous harmonies and good humor ("Chickadee Polka" and "Carolina Wren Rag"), help make this an enjoyable record.--Mark Hanson, FRETS
