A posthumous collection of odds and ends, this actually holds considerable appeal for anyone who likes their pair of fully realized albums. The 12 songs include a few studio outtakes, a few solo turns by Mimi on compositions written by Richard but incompletely recorded at the time of his death, a couple performances from the Newport Folk Festival, Downtown - Richard and Mimi Farina* - Memories a couple of Joan Baez tracks from sessions for an aborted album Richard was producing with her.
These leftovers are generally up to the standard of the two "real" albums, especially "The Quiet Joys of Brotherhood" covered by Fairport Convention and "Morgan the Pirate" a farewell to Bob Dylanaccording to the sketchy liner notes. The two cuts by Baez which Richard wrote or co-wroteespecially the compellingly melancholy "All The World Has Gone By," are excellent, leading one to wonder if the projected album they came from would have been one of Baez 's best if it had been completed.
