In the summer of 2010, Garrison Keillor, Nickel Creek's Sara Watkins, the Guy's All-Star Shoe Band, and sound-effects artist Fred Newman went on a whirlwind tour of 25 cities in less than two months. The theme was everlasting love; the shows were jam-packed with tender duets and ballads, poetry, and stories of passion and marriage, all done Prairie Home Companion-style.Now the best performances from that tour are available on this Summer Love collection. Never broadcast and therefore available for the first time on this collection, selections include favorite Prairie Home Companion elements: Guy Noir, "show sponsor" commercials, and the News from Lake Wobegon.

""Prairie Home Companion" fans, rejoice. A new collection of Garrison Keillor ballads, duets, poetry, and tales is now available to you. However, if you're anticipating satisfying yarns, you may be disappointed by this mostly musical collection. The best performances from the summer tour of 2010 highlight Nickel Creek's Sara Watkins, the hilarious sound effects of Fred Newman, and Guy's All-Star Shoe Band. Keillor's firm, distinctive baritone renders the intermittent stories with his hallmark passion, salient emphasis, and gentle sensitivity. He describes human experience from the heart. Sound quality and volume occasionally waiver, but when the content is as humorous and meaningful as this, a few quirks don't hinder the listening enjoyment. A.W. (c) AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine"
