Product Notes

...Creed has a lovely voice...that brings a certain purity and elegance to the performances on 'Peace of Wild Things.' In fact, most of the songs wouldn't sound out of place on vintage recordings by Baez or Collins, whether it's the reflective title track, written by Paul Reisler, or the antiwar anthem 'I Didn't Raise My Boy to Be A Soldier,' orchestrated for solo piano by Creed; or the folk chestnut 'Shady Grove.' When the mood is intimate and tender as on 'Who Do I Love?' a mother's ode to her child, Creed's voice is as warm as it is naturally tuneful. She displays her whimsical side, too, most notably while teaming with duet partner Randy Barrett for 'Band of Twelve,' a Bob Devlin-penned novelty that hinges on it's chorus: 'Jesus jad a band of twelve/But he never made a record deal.' As on previous recordings, Creed is surrounded by kindred spirits in the studio. Many well-known performers in the Washington area contribute to the album's acoustic charms, including Zan McLeod on guitar/bouzouki, Sue Richards on Celtic harp and Jody Marshall on hammered dulcimer. - Mike Joyce, The Washington Post.
