The late Michael Disfarmer was an odd, curmudgeonly character in rural Arkansas, who, despite his anti-social character, chose to record the stark images of his fellow townspeople, during the 1940s and '50s, in black-and-white photo portraits. Frisell has set the images to music for this recording, to which the Observer gives four stars, calling it ""brilliantly"" done; the BBC finds it ""quietly impressive ... a patchwork quilt sewn with empathy, warmth and a sense of weary pathos.""
