The 2001 release from Martin Tielli.
"What is especially wonderful about ...Poppy Salesman is its stark, spare beauty, indicating a willingness on Tielli's part to move beyond what many have pinned down as the trademark Tielli sound. His writing for the Rheostatics is often hook-laden, very melodic, full of carefully-placed sound elements, and accompanied by stories which sometimes transform into epics. Here, no melody has been sacrificed, but you have to listen closely to catch it. The songwriting is subtle, accompanied by just acoustic guitar." - Earshot ONline
