Album Reviews:

Pitchfork (Website) - "These '69 sessions were a solid start, but the real thing would come sooner -- and wilder -- than even anyone who'd heard this session was prepared for."

Uncut (magazine) - "Here she hones her skills as a writer on place with the drawling 'Down Home Girl', and the self-explanatory 'Hanging Out', which nails her milieu and the mood of these recordings."
