    Modern folk singer-songwriter Greg Brown has an impossibly deep, husky voice that delivers songs full of gritty, earthy images dredged up from the Middle American underbelly. Ostensibly not the most likely candidate for an all-female tribute album until you notice the strong thread of compassion and enduring humanity, not to mention simple, effective melody, running through his work. Accordingly, some of the finest ladies contemporaneously working in the "Americana" genre chime in here.
    Lucinda Williams delivers a moving, lost-love lament with heartbreaking ease. Country-folk songpoet Iris Dement, who would shortly wind up marrying Brown, takes on the country-icon tribute "The Train Carrying Jimmie Rodgers Home." Even with high-powered talents like Shawn Colvin, Victoria Williams, and Gillian Welch on hand, possibly the biggest compliment to Brown is how Ferron tackles "Where is Maria," given the fact that her own style was inspirational not only to that song, but to many in Brown's repertoire.
