    CD made in Canada, was strictly for the manufacturing cost. They were sold as import in Canada, even if they were made in the country. Numerous companies did this because of Free Trade and the canadian dollar low value. So this is an oxymoron to say it was for the Canadian territory.

      Does anybody else have an orange coloured vinyl version of this one? I have, and I don't find it matching any other KRS 246 releases.

        This is one of the best Elliott's albums. A combination of acoustic guitar and lyric voice expresses Elliott's inimitable style. Though the quality leaves much to be desired, it doesn't affect on a special atmosphere that music creates. I've got a musical education, and I can say that Elliott's songs has a very technical guitar playing, which adds a specific sounding to the whole album. As for best songs, they are: 'Southern Belle', 'Single File', 'St. Ides Heaven', 'The White Lady Loves You More' and 'The Biggest Lie'.
