A combination of Wells songs & traditional songs of the Western Hemisphere sung with bands, choirs, and at All Species Festivals over the years.
“Some rare, some well-cooked tunes – a  diverse documentary of roughly recorded soulful musical moments – Choral versions of songs from the last century & chants some of which are thousands of years old ~ from the seed-bag of a long time road-runner ~ mixed with a few of Wells  “not-so-easy-listening musics” –  These were not sung as commercial tunes, rather they were drawn out of and sung in the moments where songs are called for.”  —  Frank Friendlies Music Review
