Songs of Innocence and of Experience

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Tim Sheridan
This disc is obviously a labor of love for Greg Brown, as he sets poet William Blake's best-known poems to music. Some of the tunes are outstanding, such as the easy lines of "Lamb," while some poems refuse to adjust to Brown's melodic structures. However, it is an effort to be commended.
