This elegantly produced family album contains an embarassment of riches. For the McGarrigles aren't just any family. Besides sisters Kate and Anna (and Jane), there's Kate's ex-husband Loudon Wainwright, their singer/songwriter offspring Rufus and Martha Wainright as well as old friends like multi-instrumentalist Chaim Tannebaum and producer Joe Boyd. Add guests Linda Ronstadt and Emmylou Harris and the table can get a little crowded here. The atmosphere never loses that saving intimacy however. Each individual is allowed his or her moment in the limelight--Rufus shines especially on his original "Heartburn", Martha on hers, "Year Of the Dragon". Most of the numbers are old-timey parlor songs--whether public domain traditional folk, Stephen Foster's "Gentle Annie" or Irving Berlin's "What'll I Do". The McGarrigles' special gift has always been to invest this homespun material with something other than "traditional" values. This get-together--the sisters' best record in years--is no exception. Their music remains sharp and pungent, a little acerbic, and always mindful of the tragic undercurrent lurking beneath the surface warmth.
