5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome December 8, 2012
Format:MP3 Music
I heard this album 5 years ago now and its been a constant companion. To me its flawless and I like Sam's singing and delivery. I think it us up there with the great debut albums of all time. Rich, heartflt and moving. Can't pick a best track, they are all essential. Perfection and a great cover too.

5.0 out of 5 stars A lovely album finally available digitally. November 6, 2013
Format:Audio CD
This early record by Sam Amidon (2007) is certainly representative of what was to come--traditional songs to an 80s Tears for Fears cover. It's been tough to get a copy of for awhile, but happily, it's finally available on his Bandcamp page--simply do a search and you'll find it. (Plus, you can listen first if you've never heard it before.)

Sam's description: "These songs are about a lot of different, adventures on the ocean, beasts with horns, prison breaks, and other things. They're old songs that I found in different places. I changed them around some. I recorded the songs late at night in my house...I woke up one morning and my friend Thomas had surrounded the songs with sounds from his magic wand."

Standouts: Falsehearted Chicken, True Sons of Levi, Another Man Done Gone, Rocky Island, Tribulation.

5.0 out of 5 stars some people need to understand they're just grumpy December 1, 2011
By T. Huff
Format:MP3 Music
This is a beautifully simple album by a sensitive artist. I needed to rate it a 5 for two reasons.

Firstly - it's beautifully crafted and insightful on many levels both audibly and conceptually...

Secondly, reviewers like the only other reviewer of this album put on some weirdly personal message about putting on candles and slinking into a bathtub with some chubby hubby and hunky fireman calendars and then get grumpy if the album they knew nothing about doesn't fit their weird setting. So then obtusely they rate it a 1 out of 5 stars and don't consider that it would leave a crimson mark of branding on the amazon page when anyone looks up Sam Amidon records. So this review is to set back a standard.... to balance one grumpy persons experience and at raise the chances that amazon previewers will consider this album a non-1-star-album.

And again... it's just simple and beautiful as well - so give it a try

1.0 out of 5 stars REALLY AWFUL SINGING! August 25, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I came across a review someplace that said this young man was today's leading
proponent of folk singing. Since I'm a huge fan of the 60's revival of folk singing (Joan Baez, Judy Collins, Peter Paul & Mary, Joni Mitchell, I
was intrigued and went in search of one of his recordings. Got this one.
Was eager to hear the next great folk singer. Turned down the lights, lit a
couple of candles, and put the CD on. This must be a joke! Some of the most
wretchedly terrible singing I've ever heard in my life! Water-thin voice, hardly
ever on pitch, diction so terrible you can't understand half of the words! I could
go on, but really, it's a waste of time. It's a shame, because the instrumental
accompaniment has a certain, simple, almost primitive appeal. But the singing ...
