Fellow Workers,
Righteous Babe Records
| Performance 6.5 | Sound 8.5 |

Around these parts, we see the name Ani DiFranco and we get excited. No, her record company isn’t kicking us back anything for hyping her albums--at least not yet. Still, this is not your typical Ani DiFranco album, and, the truth be told, Ani serves a much more behind-the-scenes role here than one might expect from the billing. If you heard the past DifFranco/Phillips collaboration ‘The Past Didn’t Go Anywhere’ (1996), you will know of what we speak. If you haven’t you would be advised to listen to this album before you take it to the cashier.


Why? Because it’s mostly a spoken word album. Utah Phillips is a folk-poet of sorts who spins tales about everything from junkies to Mother Jones over guitar strains and the like. In this case, the ‘like’ here is provided by none other than Ani DiFranco. She also produced the album which comes of interesting and original, but not quite something that you’d want to throw on at your next swingin’ shindig. If you are one of DiFranco’s devout you may buy this simply to fill out your collection, but if you are just a casual fan, do not buy this before you hear what it’s all about.
