Editorial Reviews

Notable for her meditations on relationships, the ties that bind families ("Mary and Omie"), and the journeys that threaten to break lives apart ("I'm Not Driving This Wheel"), Nanci Griffith continued to stretch the boundaries of folk narrative with her third album. Musically, the arrangements are perfectly in keeping with her previous acoustic orchestrations--Griffith's records may seem spare, although the layers of cello, mandolins, and Dobros add signature texture--but lyrically she pushes beyond easy melancholy and into the weightier subject of love's struggle against time and distance. --Roy Kasten

5.0 out of 5 stars Among Nanci's Best September 15, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
"Once In A Very Blue Moon" is not Nanci Griffith's best album (that honor goes to its follow-up "The Last of the True Believers"), but it is near the top of the list.
"Roseville Fair," "Daddy Said," "Ghost In The Music," Mary and Omie," "Love Is A Hard Waltz" and the title track are just a few of the superb songs that grace this album. It belongs in any Nanci Griffith's fan library.

4.0 out of 5 stars Buy it for Roseville Fair September 3, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Overall, not as good as "Last of the True Believers," which I still believe is the purest Nanci Griffith album, but "Roseville Fair" is worth the price of admission. It's not one of her own songs, but she makes it hers with the delivery. Don't overlook this album in favor of the more heavily produced material of the later 80s and 90s.

3.0 out of 5 stars I'm in love with one song February 10, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I bought this disc for #8 - her voice is good on all songs, but in this one she does little flips and growls that make me sit up and take notice and play it over and over.
