The Best of the Columbia Records Radio Hour, Volume 1

EW's GRADE
B

Calling all hootenanny heads: Leonard Cohen, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Rosanne Cash, Shawn Colvin, and other musicians, alone and in various combinations, do their earnest, acoustic thing before a live radio audience on The Best of the Columbia Records Radio Hour, Volume 1. While there are no real epiphanies, most of these unpretentious, unplugged tunes have enough openhearted warmth to satisfy folk fanciers of all ages. B
