QUOTE FROM THE LYRICS: “Love is the reason, and love is the cost. Love is the answer, if you are lost…”
QUOTE FROM THE LYRICS: “It’s not coming down from outer space - it walks among us, and it wears our face. When will there be peace for the human race… we’re a long way from our home… yes, we’re a long way from our home!”
QUOTE FROM THE LYRICS: “Once I was a young man too. Held sweet hands with a maid in blue. She was all but seventeen, rosy cheeks and her eyes so free”.
QUOTE FROM THE LYRICS: “Aho Mitakuye Oyasin”^ we really are the same. Lest you be forgotten, I will call your name - Tahlequah”. (^from the Lakota language, it reflects the world view of interconnectedness).
Hold On 02:51
QUOTE FROM THE LYRICS: “You’ve been given all you’ve got, every word and every thought. Can you feel it? It’s in the air. Love is real, and it’s everywhere”.
QUOTE FROM THE LYRICS: “We are born in the sunlight. In life, you know we are blessed. Howling at the darkness, and dancing ’til we are dead”.
QUOTE FROM THE LYRICS: “Give thanks to your loving heart, making each breath a brand new start. And give a smile to the morning sky, with that sunlight in your eyes”.
QUOTE FROM THE LYRICS: “Well it’s all around you, and it’s all around me - this heart of emotion, beatin’ free, it’s a beatin’ free”.
QUOTE FROM THE LYRICS: “Just a hole in a dream, splittin’ at the seam. But who’ll buy this heart of mine? Who’s gonna buy this heart?”
QUOTE FROM THE LYRICS: “I am your friend, and your neighbour too, sharing planets like we do. We can learn to love each other, ‘cause in the end we’re all the same, la la la la. Yes, we can learn to love each other, even in that old pouring rain”.
QUOTE FROM THE LYRICS: “So spin me ‘round in the sunlight. Thrill me down to the core. Watch as the evening shadows, dance across the floor. And hold me in the arms of reason, when I’ve fallen down again. Lead me to the sacred water. Bid me drink again.
QUOTE FROM THE LYRICS: “She’s just a little bit of kindness, in a cruel sea of blindness, a shining light for all to see”.
QUOTE FROM THE LYRICS: “Well I’ve been gone such a long long time, I don’t know where I belong. All that’s left is this dreamin’ of a love and a song. Still I believe in a way. Still I believe what you say”.
QUOTE FROM THE LYRICS: “When the wild flowers bloom, and the sweet scent circles our room, well oh mama, mama let’s go down. Let’s make love on this holy ground”.
QUOTE FROM THE LYRICS: “And I knew I could not save her, for the ice was on the river, and the snow banks way to high. But when I get to dying, you know I will be smiling, for to see my true love’s eyes”.
QUOTE FROM THE LYRICS: “And as the silence grows, slips between all these words that you know, and even as the age begins to show, well you are never alone. You are never really alone”.
QUOTE FROM THE LYRICS: “I went to the St. James Infirmary. I saw my baby there. Stretched out on a long white table. So cold, so pale, and so fair”.
QUOTE FROM THE LYRICS: “And I would follow you through all the miles and years, kiss your brow with sunshine, wipe away your tears”.
QUOTE FROM THE LYRICS: “Money doesn’t talk, it screams and it can shout, but it cannot tell you what your life’s about”.


"A mix of poignant folk tunes, toe-tappers, and storytelling from a memorable performer who uses his vocal with sincerity, has good musical instincts, and a diverse ability to sound interesting.

A cohesive package. The quality is impressive and the live tracks sound as if they were recorded in a studio.

The songs are from varied albums and years. So I’m not certain how that qualifies it as one of the best for 2022. But it is."


From the classical music sounds of The Good Friday String Quartet to the driving folk rock of Gypsy Starfish, duets with partner Anna Green and Denny Kennedy, and live solo guitar and dulcimer tracks, this anthology includes several previously unreleased, rare, and live recordings, as well as selections from many of Ken’s studio album releases over the past 25 years.
