Two Nights Solo

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Rick Anderson
Anyone who is easily annoyed by the particular quirks of the baby boomer generation may have trouble giving this album a fair shake. The cover features a picture of a highly stereotypical aging hippie, complete with granny glasses, receding hairline, ponytail, and vaguely Native American-looking necklaces. The album notes include a bitter denunciation of the human race's "arrogance." All of this combines to induce a certain amount of cynical eye-rolling before the CD even enters the player -- but at that point, the cynicism melts away.

All Music Guide - Rick Anderson
Anyone who is easily annoyed by the particular quirks of the baby boomer generation may have trouble giving this album a fair shake. The cover features a picture of a highly stereotypical aging hippie, complete with granny glasses, receding hairline, ponytail, and vaguely Native American-looking necklaces. The album notes include a bitter denunciation of the human race's "arrogance." All of this combines to induce a certain amount of cynical eye-rolling before the CD even enters the player -- but at that point, the cynicism melts away. For one thing, Terry Tufts is a simply monstrous guitarist, as his instrumentals, "H'aide 'Nor H'aire" and "Soaker," immediately demonstrate. For another thing, he is a very fine singer with a voice powerful enough to carry the facile pieties that mar some of his lyrics. But best of all, he manages for the most part to avoid those pieties; most of the songs presented on this live album are romantic musings that are either wistful "Marylou in Burgundy" or wry "Only Half-Way Home", while others are simply celebrations of life and its pleasures "Tearin' up the Tundra," "Revelstoke". There is also a very nice solo version of the Beatles chestnut "With a Little Help From My Friends." It all adds up to a live set that any fan of modern folk music will wish he or she had caught personally and will be glad that someone else captured on tape.
