REVIEW:
By Yours Truly
I'm Probably going to sound a bit biased but as far as I'm concerned John Hall hasn't put a bad song out in his entire recording career. This is John's third solo album and it's chock full of excellent melodies, great guitar work, great singing and a slew of wonderful backup musicians to help John realize his songs.
This is another performer who should've been much more recognized for his talent than he ever was, however these days I doubt it bothers him much as he's moved on to another arena to effect the changes he attempted to make with his music. He is now a New York Congressman.
From the opening strains of Home At Last to the final notes of Cocaine Drain this is a marvelous album that any music lover would be proud to have as a part of their collection.

One of my favourite albums of all time. I digitized my copy years ago...carefully editing out all the vinyl pops as a labour of love. Thanks for scanning the cover, I've been missing the album art in my iTunes library!

Well if you read the entire post, or at least skim thru it you'll see the last section says CONTACT. I'd start there and read the instructions.
