I went looking for a Dave Van Ronk CD to fill the spaces in my collection where he wasn't. Two sides describes the CD - almost. You get the Vank Ronk you always knew, growly, scratchy, fun, coupled with his guitar-playing style that made his music what it is. But then you also get the over-produced, horn-blowing, jazzy stuff that nearly takes his personality out of the music. Why try to put polish on this man's sound? What was he thinking? Uh....nevermind that question. With that said, if there were actually "two" sides....the acoustic, and with-band, separate, I would feel much more comfortable listening to this CD. I actually like to put it on "random" so that I never know what's going to play next, so that I don't feel as insulted by the horns when they arrive. The sound quality definitely suffers for the two styles of music as well. You have to turn up some of the selections to hear Van Ronk at all, and quickly turn it down again, unless you forgot, and put it on random, and then - SURPRISE!
