I agree that the songs written by his family members (not Garnett) on For the Family are not so hot, but this CD contains his best renditions of old Canadian classics. A better version of Scarborough Settler's Lament or The Badger Drive I have never heard.

It is also mostly accoustic.

I do agree though that his albums would have been better off not being so "over" produced, but I guess that was the style of the times. I think For The Family indicated that he was moving away from that style of production.
