Product Description

Amazon.com

Greg Brown might be one of America's most underrated national treasures. The singer-songwriter from Iowa has penned so many good songs over the course of his career, simply going from strength to strength. And Further In might be the best yet, as spare as a Japanese garden, illuminated by small touches, like the slide work on "China." At his darkest, Brown can conjure deep shadows, and he does on "Small Dark Movie," but he's also more than capable of relieving any traces of gloom ("Hey Baby Hey"). --Chris Nickson

I have played this CD many times and it is just as fresh as the first time.

As I have said before...there isn't anything you can drink, smoke or snort that will make you feel as good as Gregs music will.
Peter Jackson
His rich baritone voice is at its peak, the lyrics are beautifully poetic, and the guitar rhythms are hypnotic.

This is deep, subtle, intelligent stuff. You'll need to listen over and over again, but you'll want to; it just gets better and better. This album really is a case of less is more. I love the fact that there doesn't have to be a selection of up-tempo tracks, doesn't have to be drums, doesn't have to be anything but great songs and the sparest - yet solid and rhythmic - musical setting. Greg Brown's voice is the icing on the cake. You need to buy this.

I own seven Greg Brown CDs and this one is my favorite and in my top ten of all time. This guy should be much more popular than he is. He and Lyle Lovett have similar styles to where they can write such beautiful and sad songs, but then can write songs that are just so funny, although their music is different.
Everything works on Further In and there is not a bad song. Kelly Joe Phelps and Bo Ramsey are awesome as well. If you buy only one Greg Brown CD, this is it. If you buy more, buy in this order: One Night, The Live One, Dream Cafe, The Poet Game, Slant 6 Mind and Covenant.
Check out Lyle Lovett's Joshua Judges Ruth, Pontaic, His Large Band or The Road to Ensenada.
Kelly Joe Phelps' first disk is awesome too.
Martin Sexton is also awesome. His Black Sheep and his live disc are incredible.

This is and will always be my favorite album. Words can not explain how relaxing, and simplifying Further In is. It oozes with sentimentality and gently carresses the listener in melody. a feast for your spririt, and a deep hot bath for your soul.

I had never even heard of Greg Brown before I read a feature about him in the International Herald Tribune. After looking at the reviews on Amazon, I selected this one, and I love it. I've been playing it repeatedly for days. I don't know how it stacks up against his other work, but this excellent album is complete in itself.
This is modern folk music mixed with traditional country and western. He has a sexy, slightly guttural singing voice, and the instrumentation, mainly acoustic guitar, is first-rate.
The songs are charming and highly memorable. The lyrics are meaningful: these are adult songs about adult relationships.
I wish the lyrics had been included in the packaging, but that is my only quibble with this cd.

This isn't kid stuff. This is thought-provoking folk music of surpassing beauty and insight. Clearly one of Brown's best--and that's saying something, given his impressive catalogue to date. Just one highlight of many: "China". If you've heard a more beautiful song recently, let me know on this page. Incidentally, if you haven't heard Brown live, you're missing a real treat. (Check out his cd "The Live One" for something approaching the concert experience.)

I need to add my voice to the chorus that seems to be saying: "What rock has this guy been hiding under for the last twenty years?" I am constantly in search of new music that I can relate to. Jazz, Folk, Country, Rock, you name it. As a result, there is a whole shelf of stuff in my music room that I'd as soon give away as listen to. I "discovered" Greg Brown because a friend brought over "A Nod To Bob" for me to listen to. As soon as I heard Greg's voice, I knew I had to find out more about him. I logged in to Amazon and read what people had to say. Purchased "Dream Cafe" and "Further In" based on those recommendations. What wonderful stuff! I have since ordered, and received, "The Live One", "Slant Six Mind" and the "Poet Game". These are still new to me but promise to be every bit as good. While a common thread runs through his music, each piece is different, fresh, new. They are loaded with multiple layers resulting in new discoveries at each listen. The musicianship, pleasingly subtle in most cases, is superb. I especially love Kelly Joe Phelps' wonderful lap style commentary. (Only wish he would live up to the promise of his "shine eyed mister zen". His others [3] are only a small step from that "shelf".) The best music, in my experience, grows on you slowly. Often the pieces that don't grab you immediately, become your favorites. "Where Is Maria" is a perfect example. For those of you, like me, searching through the vast wasteland for stuff to listen to, Greg Brown should join your MUST list. 5 CD's so far, only 17 more(?) to go!

Brown is incredible! A great mix of tunes-A little lighter, some a little sappy, some a little silly, but all great. The first song I ever heard was 'Hey Baby' and that hooked me onto this album. One of Greg's best-maybe the acme of all his discs so far! I highly recommend it.

For about a month after breaking up with my last boyfriend, I wouldn't listen to this CD because I was afraid it would bring back painful memories. Finally I bit the bullet and let this music heal me... it is the most powerful, profoundly beautiful album I have ever owned. It's so good sometimes you just have to cry along with it, sometimes you just have to laugh along with it, and you always have to smile along with it
