The songs on this double-album CD are portraits of American life and storytelling at its finest, unforgettable in both music and lyrics. As folk music critic Arthur Wood said of Patricia Hardin and Tom Russell in Country Music People Magazine, a balanced summation of their recorded output is that they were years ahead of their time.
In truth, the songs of Hardin & Russell were snapshots of American life, collages, positive and negative, good and bad, of the wealthiest society in history. A balanced summation of their recorded output is that they were years ahead of their time. --Arthur Wood: Country Music People Magazine, V. 23, No. 2
