Folk contemporaries Bill Morrissey and Greg Brown have crafted ì careers out of deep, unique voices and penetrating songwriting ì skills. But with the exception of Brown's tribute to Morrissey, ì 'Fishing With Bill,' all of the songs here are covers that ì they've played together in the past for their own amusement. The ì material touches upon blues (Willie Dixon's 'Little Red ì Rooster'), rock (the Rolling Stones' 'You Can't Always Get What ì You Want'), country (Hank Williams's 'I'll Never Get Out of This ì World Alive'), folk (Ferron's 'Ain't Life a Brook'), and ì traditional tunes ('He Was a Friend of Mine'). Both performers ì sing and play acoustic guitar, Morrissey adds slide guitar and ì harmonica, and rhythm players are featured on a few tunes. The ì ambiance is loose throughout.
