Image of Hal Ketchum


Hal Ketchum's talents burst onto the country music scene in 1991, hitting #1 with his very first single, "Small Town Saturday Night." His almost instant arrival as a distinctive artistic presence reflected a lifetime already immersed in music.

Reared in the village of Greenwich in the gorgeously verdant countryside of upstate New York, Ketchum hails from a family where ... Read more in Amazon's Hal Ketchum Store

Format:Audio CD
Ketchum's been a country hitmaker since the early '90s, with consistently interesting albums that have often shaded to the smoother, adult-contemporary side of Nashville's output. In 1998 he split the sessions for I Saw The Light between Nashville and Austin, employing a more rustic choice of material and arrangements for the latter. The resulting album wasn't as cohesive as his earlier releases, but taking the sessions individually one finds Ketchum standing authoritatively in both worlds. More importantly, the alternatives to Nashville's way would again be exercised the following year with the electric blues "Long Way Down" and the Zydeco-inspired "You Love Me, Love Me Not." Ketchum continued to revert to pop-influenced country, but he also wailed on a Bo Diddley beat for 2003's "The King of Love," found a soulful vocal gear for "On Her Own Time," and championed the common man on the shuffle blues "The Carpenter's Way."

Ketchum's last album, the 2007 release One More Midnight, was released in Europe but not the U.S., making this CD his first domestic issue in five years. In addition to some fine new songs (most newly written, a few selected from Ketchum's catalog of previously unreleased works) and superb vocal performances, the presence of this live-in-the-studio recording is ear opening. Ketchum and his engineer (Craig White) capture the sort of intimate sound one used to expect from vinyl half-speed masters and direct-to-disc pressings.

5.0 out of 5 stars HAL KETCHUM--OUR NATIONAL TREASURE October 6, 2008
Format:Audio CD
As always, Hal Ketchum delivers a collection of songs with melodies and lyrics that truly "stay forever" in the mind of this listener, an admitted Hal Ketchum fan since the early '90s. Having had the opportunity to see Hal perform several of these new songs in January of this year at the Crazy Horse in West Covina, CA, the CD delivers equally stirring performances. There is not a single song on this CD that I would consider less than a "five star" effort--from the heart-string tugging "Ordinary Day" and "The Day He Called Your Name" to the absolutely hilarious "Continental Farewell" (be sure to read the liner notes on this song). What was an absolute surprise was the inclusion of "Millionaire's Wife"--a tune that I had not heard Hal perform in several years; I guarantee it will stick in your head and you'll find yourself singing the melody, "She has a house and a big, black Lincoln" for days to come. Yes, Hal Ketchum is indeed a national treasure!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars THE BEST EVER!!! December 30, 2008
Format:Audio CD
I have every CD Hal Ketchum ever recorded and this is by far the best HAL EVER!!! The packaging is equally amazing as well as the liner notes written by none other than Neil Diamond! If Neil Diamond is blown away by the excellence of this CD, than just imagine how you'll feel upon your first listen. I love that he included a written description of each song's recording. And for those who don't know, Hal recorded this old school, live to 2 track in the studio, without ANY overdubs. Very few vocalists would be brave enough to do that, but when you have an angelic voice like Hal, the sky's the limit!! Buy this and you'll love it!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Distinctive voice, emotionally delivered lyrics November 22, 2008
Format:Audio CD
I'm a long time fan of Hal Ketchum. When I heard him sing a song from "Father Time" on the Grand Ole Opry a couple of months back, I was impressed as always. Then I learned that he recorded this "album" the old school way. Everyone came into the studio and recorded together; none of the usual laying tracks and sweetening it until the product sounds sanitized. This made me want to buy the CD and I did. We have enjoyed it immensely - old time country ballad styles, mixed with R&B and a touch of jazz.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hal Ketchum has really set the bar for everybody . September 23, 2008
Format:Audio CD
There is nothing quite like seeing Hal Ketchum in person. This is another CD I will have to call a favorite and I have only listened to it once. Hal Ketchum is what I believe to be " America's voice " in the Country Music arena.

Thanks Hal and I look forward to seeing you when you visit the Northwest ( soon I hope ). I was so so pleased with the release of " Millionare's Wife "

5.0 out of 5 stars Top Notch October 6, 2008

5.0 out of 5 stars Still the man, no doubt October 25, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a great record that continues to show Hal's talent and experience. The listener has to remember that this CD was created live to track. This means there are no overdubs on this entire record. This is unheard of in the industry today due to the "commercialization" of all artists to make sure their record sells. Hal has proved himself in the early 90s and he continues to do the same today. Of course, the radio doesn't tend to the 90s genre anymore but these artists are still creating great music. Hal has a great voice that tops many of the elite acts today.. Hal is still the man, no doubt.

If you want a true record, this is a great one to pick.

I ordered this because I enjoy this man's music. The album is good, but not really great, in my opinion. I didn't enjoy the songs very much and was left wanting more. Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars Back to the old
As always, Hal Ketchum is a great ballad singer. When listening, I heard the echoes of his Greatest Hits album. Great listening, especially for long car rides.

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid stuff
Despite the eerie concept/artwork on the cover, this is some of Ketchum's best work. Soulful, reflective, energetic. He's still got it.

I listened to it a couple times. I like Hals voice and this has plenty of it, but it has no real catchy songs and overall is kind of drab. Read more
