Das war eines der ersten Alben, die ich mir bei Jamendo runter lud. Diese klare Stimme, diese lakonisch wirkenden Texte, dieses gefühlvolle Songwritertum, das (fast) perfekte Mastering ... Robin Grey gehörte zu den Interpreten, die ich immer rezensieren wollte und es (vielleicht aus zu großem Anspruch) nie tat. Der Highwaydriver erinnerte mich daran. Kurz: Männliche Sänger im Nu Folk-Bereich: Robin Grey und Josh Woodward muss man bei Jamendo kennen!

Wunderschön :)
