Editorial Reviews

Landslide Records is proud to present award-winning singer/songwriter/guitarist Gary Bennett, whose first solo outing, Human Condition, will be released February 21, 2006. Produced by the notable R.S. Field (Sonny Landreth, Allison Moorer, Webb Wilder), the album showcases a strong combination of original songs performed by a superb cast of Nashville luminaries. Gary Bennett co-fronted and was a founding member of the critically acclaimed country music band BR549, who recorded five well-received albums (four with Arista and one with Sony), and received three Grammy nominations. During Garys tenure, the band sold over 500,000 albums and toured the world, headlining shows as well as opening for such artists as Bob Dylan, George Jones, Merle Haggard, the Black Crowes and Brian Setzer. Garys studio band features some of Nashvilles finest musicians, including Kenny Vaughan (Marty Stuart) on guitar, Jimmy Lester (Webb Wilder, Los Straitjackets) on drums and Mark Winchester (Emmylou Harris, Brian Setzer Orchestra) on bass. Special guests include Marty Stuart, who plays mandolin and rhythm guitar on several tracks and legendary pedal steel guitar player, Lloyd Green.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better Than Ever February 21, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Gary Bennett sounds better than ever on the new cd human condition. As a songwriter he is at the top of his game with songs like Human Condition,Heading Home,Aint Getting No younger,and My Illussion.

The musicians on the cd are some of my favourites. Kenny Vaughn is always amazing with Marty Stuart and shines just as bright here. Jimmy Lester is from Los Straightjackets and I wondered what he was up to now.

I have a feeling that this cd is going to take off. This is good music for people who like old rock, old country, rockabilly, and even new country.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent debut from gary bennett May 14, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Gary Bennett was the heart and soul of the most successful alt. country band of all time, Br5-49. They graced the cover of the legendary Billboard magazine before they even had a record deal. Allegedly, Timothy White saw the boys down their on Broadway playing for tips at Roberts. That night he told them as well as his co-editor that he was putting them on the cover of Billboard. The next morning.. after the alcohol wore off the co-editor asked Timothy if he was still puttin' them country boys on the cover of Billboard to which Timothy replied.. "yes".

So.. many tours with the likes of Bob Dylan, the Black Crowes, Brian Setzer, Merle Haggard, etc., and after four records with famed label Arista and one record in 2001 on Sony.. Gary Bennett left the band along with their bass player, "Smilin'" Jay McDowell. When Gary left he completely walked away from music and none of us in the Br5-49 community really knew what happened. The guy who wrote the best songs as well as half the songs and sang on half the songs, left the group. It completely destroyed the community and really broke it up. Apparently Gary took a job at Home Depot from what the latest article in No Depression stated. Then he went to managing the legendary Ernest Tubb Record Store in Nashville Tennessee. After a short period he was convinced to do a solo record by some excellent guys like Kenny Vaughan, Jimmy Lester, Mark Winchester, and R.S. Field . The result is an amazing collection of original songs and some of the best cover versions of other songs that I've ever heard. Gary's version of Bill Ray Reynolds' "Steel Ball" is out of this world! The music is something Merle Haggard would've done back in the 80's..

5.0 out of 5 stars BEST RECORD OF THE YEAR May 14, 2006
Format:Audio CD
THESE ARE SONGS.

YES INDIE ROCK RECORDS ARE GOOD AND YOU CAN GROOVE TO THEM BUT WITH A LOT OF INDIE ROCK AND A LOT OF MUSIC IN GENERAL THAT IS RELEASED THESE DAYS, THE SONGS ARE LACKING.

THIS IS THE FINEST COLLECTION OF SONGS RELEASED IN QUITE SOME PERIOD. THIS IS BENNETT SINGING AT HIS FINEST AND MORE IMPORTANTLY, WRITING AT HIS FINEST. I PICKED THIS UP AFTER HEARING IT ON XM. I KNEW THE BR549 RECORDS BUT WASN'T EVER THAT IMPRESSED WITH THEM. I LIKED THEM, BUT THAT WAS ABOUT IT. AFTER HEARING CROSS COUNTRY SPIN THIS CD A BUNCH AND THE CD CLIMBING TO THE TOP OF THEIR CHART, I BOUGHT THIS IMMEDIATELY.

I HIGHLY SUGGEST IT. AND AMAZON SHOULD PUT UP AN EDITORIAL REVIEW OF THIS CD BECAUSE THEY REVIEW A BUNCH OF HORRIBLE STUFF THAT SHOULDN'T BE REVIEWED, LIKE THE NEW VAN MORRISON RECORD WHICH IS GOD AWFUL. VAN MORRISON DOESN'T NEED AMAZON TO HELP SELL HIM RECORDS, ESPECIALLY SINCE HIS NEW RECORD IS A LOAD OF TRASH. THIS IS THE KIND OF RECORD THAT AMAZON SHOULD BE SUPPORTING AND TRYING TO PROMOTE THROUGH PUTTING UP EXCELLENT EDITORIAL REVIEWS.

SO, HOP TO IT AMAZON. THIS RECORD NEEDS TO BE PROMOTED CAUSE IT'S WAY TOO F'N GOOD TO GO IGNORED!!

PICK IT UP IF YOU LIKE SONGS AND GOOD MUSIC IN GENERAL. IF YOU DON'T LIKE GOOD MUSIC GO LISTEN TO JOHN TESH
