What they're saying about this CD:

"You’d best not miss Happy Traum’s Just For The Love Of It. I’ve been a huge fan of Happy’s for years and you should be too! This is a triumphant work. Don’t let it get away!" - Jorma Kaukonen

"...another very sweet gem of a CD. As usual, Happy has impeccable taste in choosing a program of great traditional folk and blues songs or contemporary songs written in the tradition and even better taste in the way he arranges them with both reverence for his sources and the originality of his always creative fingerpicking guitar and warm singing. He also surrounds himself – track to track – with just the right set of supporting musicians for each song and arrangement." - Mike Regenstreif, Folk Roots and Folk Branches

"The title of the album sums it up. Happy Traum, the preeminent guitarist who started during the folk boom and accompanied many great artists, along with several albums with his late brother Artie, sat back, took stock and with a deep, subtle passion recorded an album of his favorite traditional and contemporary songs and instrumentals. Although well on in years, his fingers still do their dance on the guitar as agilely as in his youth and he sings with the experience only years provide. Many older artists attempt to go back and mine gold, but Traum succeeds. He's accompanied by many talented artists including John Sebastian on harmonica; Abby Newton, cello; Martin Simpson, guitar and David Amram, the one-man orchestra." - Rich Warren, "Midnight Special" Radio Show
