“This [‘Joan and Victor Jara’] is one of the all-time wonderful folk songs.” – Darryl Purpose (https://darrylpurpose.com/)

“I was hard-pressed not to assume it [‘The Rose of Ben Nishaere’] to be one of the many traditional/arranged by songs so often found on folk records. It’s that good.” – Bill Golembeski, Folking.com (https://folking.com/old-time-pharmaceuticals-roots-honey-own-label/)

“Pat DeSimio is an academic song smith who, like John Fogerty, Stan Rogers, and Jack White, consumes a certain style, tinkers in the engine room, and then produces a worthy addition to that genre.” – Bill Golembeski,  Folking.com (https://folking.com/old-time-pharmaceuticals-roots-honey-own-label/)
