The second release. 2002. Dirty linen said: "Finally for this month, one more to rock out with. The Minneapolis duo Lehto and Wright has recorded another mighty collection of well chosen British and American songs and dance tunes called The Further Adventures of Darling Corey [sic]. Steve Lehto is a master of assorted electric and acoustic guitars, with a raucous, skirling style on the former and a contrastingly delicate, harmonious touch on the latter. John Wright plays ominous-sound bass, often as a second lead instrument, as well as acoustic guitars and percussion. Wright is also the duo's potent, gritty-voiced lead singer. They growl and bang their way through the Irish song "Arthur McBride and the Sergeant" in a manner reminiscent of fellow Minnesotans Boiled in Lead, give Pete Seeger's "Waist Deep in the Big Muddy" an angry reading influenced by Dick Gaughan, and blast through "The Monaghan Jig" with a bass lead that gives way to guitar pyrotechnics. There are some quiet tracks too, like Lehto's eloquent, mournful acoustic arrangement of "The Lament of Limerick." Highly recommended for anyone who's not afraid of the effects of amplification.
