Editorial Reviews

Born in Key West, Florida and raised in Tampa, Florida, Bronson Arroyo came from a musical and sports family. Drafted by the Pittsburgh Pirates in 1995, Arroyo was later singed by the Boston Red Sox in 2003. After the 2004 World Series won by the Red Sox, Bronson teamed up with music producer Loren Harriet and music executive Lou Mann to create a twelve song album featuring cover songs that Arroyo would play for his teammates.

Customer Reviews

This CD is a must for Red Sox fans and others!

Overall a great CD, lots of great yet different sounding covers of great songs.
Big Al
He has a very deep, rich voice, that lends itself perfectly to this music.

I had a feeling there would be some low ratings here, most likely from Yankee fans, or Sox fans that 'disapprove' of Bronson moonlighting with music. Silly.

I first heard Bronson sing last year, and was blown away at the voice that comes out of this skinny guy. Bronson is one of the quiet players, almost shy, so I was surprised to hear that he sings, and was then shocked by how good he is. He has a very deep, rich voice, that lends itself perfectly to this music. There's a lot of good music on this CD, SLIDE, FRESHMEN, and unlike another poster, my favorite was actually the fun rendition of DIRTY WATER, the song that is played whenever the Sox win at home.

I look forward to another CD with original songs.

I heard Bronson sing last year when they played some of his footage from Hot Stove on NESN and I couldn't believe how great his voice was. I am a die hard Sox fan, and a fan of his so I was happy when he released a cd. Yes, it is all covers but he sings them very well. My personal favorites are Freshman and Shimmer, but really the whole album is awesome. I was at his concert last Wednesday and he was amazing live as well. He is a talented guy, I can't wait to see what he comes up with for his next cd!

Lorin, Boston MA

Bronson delivers some fine lyrics on some very fine tunes on this album. His voice is sharp, crisp, and at times haunting. Highly recommended!

This Cd is really awesome. I am from Cincinnati, OH and we just got Bronson from Boston, and ever since then he has been singing everywhere with the songs from this CD. This is a very cool CD, I listen to it over and over again.

Bronson Arroyo will always and forever be a hero in Boston. He was one of the stars of the 2004 World Champs (eat your hearts out forever Evil Empire fans) and he proves on this CD that he is a real musician as well as an excellent pitcher (and, it seems, a good hitter too, judging by his opening games with the Reds). "Slide" starts out the CD in fine style and, my personal favorite, "Grey Sky Morning," is beautifully sung and arranged. This is a guy who clearly loves music - and he sings with a passion that more noted singers could take some lessons from. "Dirty Water," which closes the CD, is just a lot of fun, hearing some of the great voices, especially Johnny Damon's, from the 2004 Champs. Believe me, Bronson, you're missed in Boston, because you loved playing for the Red Sox and the fans will never forget your contributions. This fine CD is a great addition to any music lover's collection. Sure, the range of songs is somewhat limited, as one poster writes, but, for those who don't know these songs or bands, Bronson's CD is a terrific introduction and the liner notes, which describe his feelings about each song, add to a VERY impressive CD debut. I find myself playing several cuts of this A LOT. You will too. Bronson is a cool guy, great pitcher, hitter, and a champion! Here's hoping we get him back to the Red Sox soon.

I don't feel like I wasted money on this album because Arroyo demonstrates a certain level of vocal ability and it's a fun thing to own from a novelty standpoint, but it certainly didn't blow me away. He should have included original compositions in the recording (unless, of course, those aren't any good). I also disagree with his chosen title- I don't think he really covers the proverbial bases here musically, since he selected pieces from a limited genre and time period. He does sound remarkably like the artists whose songs he covered - I think he fields his position pretty well... Perhaps "A Striking Resemblance" would have been the more appropriate title.

I was very happy to hear that a member of my favorite 2004 World Series champion Boston Red Sox came out with a cd but I was even happier after hearing it. I love the songs that Bronson Arroyo covers. The songs are really well sung. I like "Dirty Water" the best because of hearing a few members of the Sox singing along. You will like this cd!
