(The artists) bring a reality and passion to these songs that make the hopes and the joys, the fears and the sufferings, the laughter and the sweat of struggling, wondering, working women and men of other eras and places as much part of our awareness as fast food stands, microchips, and tv talk shows..." —From the liner notes by Bruce Kaplan for Flying Fish Records
