Tim Walker Decades after Elizabeth "Connie" Converse (1924-?1974) vanished without a trace, the enigmatic, poetic songs she wrote and recorded in the 1950s finally found the audience they deserved. Very much of their era, yet somehow also timeless.

John Belmont Lilting, canary-like vocals and simple guitar playing carries quality lyrics. Is Connie still out there somewhere, under another name perhaps, reveling in her new-found fame? I hope so. She deserves it. Favorite track: Roving Woman.

Victoria Martinez The best ballads, forever ever. "Up that tree, there's sort of a squirrel thing/ Sounds just like us/ When we were quarreling." Favorite track: Talkin' Like You (Two Tall Mountains).
