REVIEWS: (Modern Recording Magazine) From the opening chords of "Retreat Suite" to the whimsical "Oh Boy! I've Won The Contest At Last", Whynott and his colleagues, including oboist Michael Kaman, create a fine musical package... (Billboard Magazine) A magical record from a sensitive, yet streetwise, troubadour & poet. This is a special album for special people. It is folk & rock ballads. All are lovingly composed, simple yet complex, and above all, it is beautiful in both conception and presentation. Stephen Whynott is not well known, but one listen to this album will bring him into your life. His music is magic; his words are poetry, and his voice & guitar create lovingly tender stories, orchestrated with great sensitivity. If you let him in, he will reach out and touch you. (The Gazette Journal, Reno) Outside stuff; out of the ordinary folk music with rock thrown in here & there.
