This is an amazing album, especially for guitar players. Chris Smither's first album after years off the scene, includes fresh versions of "Love You Like a Man" and "I Feel the Same" covered much earlier by Bonnie Raitt. Chris must've been about 10 when he wrote the first, which is pretty funny if you think about it.
I've always admired artists who get a full orchestration from a single instrument, and Smither has this in spades. The fastest thumb in the business, and a total absence of distortion result in an honest, clean recording of extreme power.
This is my favorite of his recent albums, mostly because there's no backup band. Check this guy out.

I was recently introduced to Chris Smithers through a local radio program ("out of the blue radio review" by Page Wilson, on WCVE in Richmond). Mr. simithers' ability is aparent on every Trak.I have been absolutely enthalled by his mastery of the guitar. The music presented on this CD is as rich and complex as it is hard to categorize. Anyone looking for an example of acoustic folk/blues/rock with a hint of the mississippi delta, you need look no further.

Chris Smither turns in a brilliant live performance here that mixes folk and blues standards with his own less classifiable originals, which seem more informed by tradition, rather than defined by it.
His acoustic guitar playing is technically impressive, and this is the first thing that some young, guitar-playing friends of mine seized upon, when I lent them the CD. He can burn with up-tempo picking.
Yet, it is the reflective ballads that command my attention and affection the most. Smither's baritone communicates a dignified sense of melancholy that hints at genuine spiritual depth. These ballads are sequenced against upbeat versions of tunes that range from his own "Love You Like A Man" to a Chuck Berry cover.
In the end, this is a vital and nuanced performance that is more rewarding for me than his studio recordings with a full band. Highly recommended.

I became a Smither fan after hearing him play live, which is where he really shines, and have since made a point of catching his performances all over the U.S. I have all his CDs and this one is my perennial favorite. It's hard to articulate exactly why, since Chris is so uniformly masterful with his guitar technique and his famously smooth/gravelly voice. I guess it's largely the song choices, which are a teriffic blend of traditional blues covers and his own soulful compositions. Also the live format infuses the entire CD with an energy and consistency missing from many studio productions. This is a singular virtuoso performance; being in that audience must have been a sublime experience!

"Another Way to Find You" was listed by Kenneth Bays of BLUES REVUE magazine as a favorite album. Since I liked or loved *every* other album Bays listed but had never heard Chris Smither, you bet I sent for this quick-like-a-bunny.
Oh my wow. Read the other reviews here, they are absolutely right about his guitarwork. He writes an excellent song, walking back and forth between what those who want to classify would call blues and folk. Interesting individual voice that goes well with his lyrics and phrasing-- his voice, playing and writing are extremely well integrated.
If you like this kind of music (and I approached it from a blues background) you will find tremendous subtle variety among the cuts; if you're not used to it, this is a CD WORTH listening to til you do find them. His "Love You Like A Man" is hilariously joyful guy-stuff and beats Bonnie Raitt's all hollow (!). "Shake Sugaree" is a wonderful choice to cover. It figures if he writes songs as he does that he'd find this and deftly bring out EVERYthing the song has in it. I can only agree with what has been said about other cuts.
One of those rare CDs with such high consistent quality and depth throughout, where the concept aids and abets what is great about the artist... it's just something to put on again and again to hear as a whole.

If some mad genetic engineer had decided to clone an ultimate late-60's coffee-house hero in a test-tube, Chris Smither would have been the result. He writes like Fred Neil and Tim Hardin; he plays Taj-Fahey double-thumb as fast as Jorma; he's got the whiskey-and-cigarette tone of Dave van Ronk, and the laid-back charisma of Tom Rush; his sense of humor is nearly as surrealistic as Leo Kottke's and as chummily acerbic as Pat Sky's; to top it all off he looks like Ian Tyson in a Johnny Cash shirt and a John Hammond haircut. And as the title cut shows, when he feels the need he can channel the ghost of Robert Johnson as wall as Hammond does.

Now -- can you think of a reason NOT to buy this?

In Chris Smither's own words, from the liner notes to this:

"There's nothing difficult or complicated about making a record. You sit down in front of a mike and play the sounds, someone watches the machinery, and you're done. That's how Robert Johnson did it, but for the most part it hasn't been done like that for a long time. Multiple takes and overdubs are part and parcel of even the simplest project. But though I am fascinated by, heartily approve of, and have shamelessly indulged in many of the techniques available today, this project is probably as close as I'll ever come to an official endorsement of the naked truth. And not out of a high-minded sense of what's "right" or "pure", but simply because it sounded like fun. Fill up a recording studio with an audience and play straight sets for two nights. So I did, and here it is."

I heard Chris the first time in '93. He played a gig at the Milltop Tavern in St. Augustine, FL. I'd seen a poster for the performance in the window of a used CD shop (Napster hadn't been created yet, and iTunes wasn't even a glimmer in Steve Jobs' eye). The poster had an endorsement from Bonnie Raitt: "Chris Smither has always been my Eric Clapton." (stg, that's word-for-word ...) Her cover of "Love Me Like A Man" is so well known, many think it's her tune. But it's Chris' "Love You Like A Man" - from one of his "semi-annual fits of self-confidence." So I went back in the store, asked to use the phone, and bought a ticket. (Cell phones were scarce, too. I said it was '93.)

His two sets that night included most of the material on this album, plus songs from Happier Blue and It Ain't Easy, and a couple that I haven't heard on any recording.
