Sing Out Summer 2006 Issue: Focus on Reviews
1 Mustard's Retreat - Simple Faith - MR7 336 - Yellow Room
also reviewed... First Album Plus, Gathering of Moments
"A good snapshot of two folkies aging gracefully"
2 David Kleiner - This Human Heart 320 - This Human Heart - David
"Confusing contradictions of the universal muscle of romance"
Deducated to my mom, who underwent heart surgery yesterday, and is doing well this morning.
3 Terry Tufts - The better fight 432 The better Fight -
"Tufts sings with an engaging, comforable voice and he's a dynamite guitarist."
4 Diana Jones - Pony 440 My rememberance of You - newSong
"abilty to use her voice to sing the story fo the song. Its is convincing and real"
5 Cary Cooper - Back When I was Grown Up 237 - Yellow
- Cary Cooper
"If autobiographical, we hear clues to the changes Cary ahs made. Breaking from the PTA, choira nd lesbian-phobia molds she's redefiend herself and become the cool mom on the block, sporting a nowse ring, an Internet "my space" site and a CD."
6 Joe Jencks - Everett Massacre 437 Jack built 247 - Rise as One
- Turtle Bear
"Over the past several years, Joe Jencks has proven himself as a worthy torchbearer of orignial songs that matter."
7 Tom Russell - Stolen Children 420 Love and Fear - High
"Some of the songs are inspired by Tom's own life"
8 Cindy Mangsen - (White) Open That Can 303 - Cat Tales
"one very good voice with one astute performer, ad a good sense of humor, a love of felines and 10 songs about cats, and you have Cat Tales."
9 Paul Mills - Doc's Guitar 209 - The other Side fo the Glass
"Finally after more than 30 eyars of making other peole's music soudn good, verean porducer and guiatrist Paul Millsa has finally done an album ofhis own.. and its a dandy."
10 Lynn Miles - This is the Night 300 Love Sweet Love
- Red House
All cuts feature love, or driving and love. We can assume she's haad lots of experience with both. "Night Drive" uses driving metaphors for love. In "1,000 Lovers" nothing will calm the storm outside, nor the pain inside"
11 Eric Taylor - Just Short of the Line 224 Great Divide - Blue
A fan and buddy of Townes Van Zandt. "One of the best of the Texas Singer-songwriters"

- Waterbug - chuckbrodsky.com
"Great story songs"

Mammals - Do Not Go Quietly Unto Your Grave 340 Departure - Signature Sounds

"natural beauty and clarity" Listen to my story... hear the thundering of Mount Sinai
15 Juggernauts - (Fuller) San Francisco Bay Blues 332 Live Lunch - Juggernaut

Janis Ian called to talk about Clearwater. She introduced her song Joy, from her new release, and spoke about the Joy she and her brother have experienced in the Catskills over the years. I remember playing her songs at a camp in Peterborough Ontario, Canada as a teen. Only two of us arrived with guitars and a girl named Pandora taught me some Janis Ian tunes. Always a fan.
