    What a surprise!

    Being a fan of Mr. Cohn's song writing talent, I resisted an album of cover tunes. Why, I wondered, would such a writer need to cover anyone else's material? Eventually I sampled a scrap or two of this record, bought it and ended up liking it very much. Marc's maple-syrup voice flows over these familiar melodies and lyrics. His wonderful band is spot-on and the guest vocalists compliment without competing. "Into the Mystic" is perhaps just that touch smoother than Van Morrison's wonderful, original recording.
