The DJ knows how to pick some classic tracks and mix in some earnest newcomers, pull in a couple of heartfelt intimate songs, and balance it out with a handful of real rockers. The problem is that the album as a whole begins to sound like a label sampler, or maybe a disc that would come inside a magazine. While the songs for the most part are good, there is no real continuity, and some of the song choices are a bit suspect. There were far better songs on Gillian Welch's Soul Journey than "No One Knows My Name," ...

While the songs for the most part are good, there is no real continuity, and some of the song choices are a bit suspect. There were far better songs on Gillian Welch's Soul Journey than "No One Knows My Name," and "Can't Take It With You When You Go" isn't the best representation of Rhonda Vincent's spectacular catalog.
