Anyone from the Mpls/St. Paul will be familiar with their song "Little potato," often played on the am public radio program. This album is a mixture of accoustical and vocal selections perfect for background music. Some of the songs are so outstanding that you may wear out the replay button on your CD. The last track on the album, Endless Chain, recounts the imagined conversations of quilts calling out their names as they flap on the clothesline, richly accompanied by varous strings and dulcimer, which builds to an amazing, layered climax of harmonies and words, much as if all the hands that created the quilts were all in the same room on a phenomenal quilting bee. I cannot properly do it justice, but if accoustical {and augmented} folk is your taste, this album is really worth buying. Mine gets played at least once a week and I've had it for years.

I first purchased this album on vinyl way back in the 80's. Since then, I must have bought at least five more copies, for myself and to give as gifts. It has consistently been among my top ten favorite albums of all time.
The music, while "folky," is also fresh and exhilarating, wonderfully arranged and performed. Malcom Dalglish has a way with the hammered dulcimer equalled by few, and the vocal and instrumental lines often form an intricate tapestry which is truly a delight to hear.

If you are at all interested in folk music, or just good music which can stand the proverbial "test of time" I highly recommend this album, as well as all of the Metamora/Dalglish oeuvre.
By the way, one of my new favorite albums is Dalglish's "Pleasure" CD, which I reviewed just a few days ago. And if you can get your hands on a copy of "First of Autumn" (which is out of print), let me know, I want one too.

I've had this recording on cassette since some time in the 80s and everytime I return to it it breaks my heart with the beauty of the music and lyrics that examine the simple mysteries of life with a sweet, magical eloquence. It would be one of my "desert island" choices.

LONG AGO, WHEN MY KIDS WERE TINY THINGS, I HEARD "LITTLE POTATOE", AND IT HAS NEVER LEFT MY HEART. MY MEMORIES OF HOW I FELT, THE DREAMS FOR THE FUTURE, THE TEARS OF JOY, THE GRINS, AND THE WORRIES OF TRYING TO BE THE BEST DAD THERE COULD EVER BE (JUST LIKE MY DAD WAS TO ME!) ALL LOVINGLY RETURN WHEN I EVEN REMEMBER THIS SONG, MUCH LESS HEAR IT AGAIN.

WHEN IN MY WALK OF LIFE, I AM LUCKY ENOUGH MEET A DEDICATED YOUNG FATHER DOING HIS BEST AS A DAD (AND I DO RUN ACROSS THEM, THANK GOD!), "LITTLE POTATOE" COMES BACK TO MY MIND AND I WANT TO SHARE IT. I FEEL THE BLESSING GO ON AND ON.

THIS ALBUM DESERVES A REISSUE. THE SONG "LITTLE POTATOE" DESERVES A PLACE IN EVERY FATHER'S HEART.

I first heard Metamora when I was about 8 years old. There was a local college station that played them. Our family would sit around listening to the program while having Saturday night dinner. Now that I am a grown woman with kids of my own, I enjoy playing it while hanging out with my family. Little Potato still brings tears to my eyes when I remember my father singing it to me and now, when I sing it to my kids.
It's a fun cd.
I don't know if this will help anyone but I'll say that it has brought me years of listening pleasure.
