Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Throughout his long tenure with New Grass Revival, John Cowan sometimes sounded like a frustrated country-bluegrass singer yearning to let loose a rock & roll wail. On this self-titled album, his second solo record, Cowan more often resembles a frustrated pop-rock singer yearning to get back to the country heartland. The album was produced by Cowan's friend and fellow pop-country vagabond Wendy Waldman. The 13 tracks encapsulate Cowan's stylistic reach, from the bluegrassy "My Heart Will Follow You" and the extended instrumental jam "Sligo" to the computerized funk of "Roll Away the Stone" and the arena-rock posturing of "High Above the Powerlines." Several of the better tunes are among the more laid-back: the jazzy "Nothing but the Blues," the slinky "Mississippi Delta Time," and a lovely Celtic-flavored cover of Merle Travis's "Dark as a Dungeon" that shows off Cowan's sirenlike tenor without overwhelming the song. --Rick Mitchell

5.0 out of 5 stars He just keeps getting better and better! April 22, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I've had this CD for 9 months now, as it was available self-published before Sugar Hill released it. I never get tired of listening to it! And every time I listen, my favorite song changes depending on my mood. From the haunting "Dark As A Dungeon" to the soaring "My Heart Will Follow You", the music fills your spirit and makes you glad you're alive. A touch of soul, a splash of bluegrass, a rock beat here and there, the music is difficult to categorize except to place it in the category of "exceptionally listenable" and "must buy"!

5.0 out of 5 stars John Cowan April 24, 2000
By Tobyfan
Format:Audio CD
John Cowan's self-titled CD is an eclectic mix of everything from bluegrass to blues to rock 'n roll. Yet somehow it all blends together and really works. I purchased this CD when it was still on a private label - over three months ago - and I still cannot hear it enough. Cowan has the voice of an angel; powerful and beautiful. There is simply no one better; at least not anyone whom I have ever heard. You absolutely cannot go wrong in purchasing this CD; I guarantee it. It's the best collection of music I have ever heard. The only thing better than listening to this CD is hearing John sing live.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Vocals April 2, 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This album captures the greatest singer of our time. See him live! Not only does he sing better than all others, he does so while playing the bass! If you're a musician you know how hard that is. These songs are uplifting and imaginative and John Cowan deserves more recognition than he gets. Truely unbelievable.

My favorite song is "My Heart Will Follow You". Go Ahead Get It!~~~~

5.0 out of 5 stars An Extraordinary Talent!! June 27, 2001
Format:Audio CD
I first heard John Cowan back in the 1980's when he was part of The New Grass Revival and they toured with Leon Russell. I went to hear Leon, but it was John Cowan's voice that really gave me goose-bumps...and it STILL does! This CD is a wonderful mix of bluesy ballads, love songs that you'll want to play for someone special and up-tempo tunes. It crosses over boundaries into blues, bluegrass, soft rock and pop. It's been a long time since I've found a CD as rewarding. I can play it repeatedly, even on long trips in my car, and never get tired of it. John Cowan's talent is a special gift from God! Buy this CD if you want to hear a great singer, songwriter and musician.

5.0 out of 5 stars Who else can hold a note for 24 bars and more? May 27, 2001
Format:Audio CD
I'm proud to tell you John, our 13 yr old daughter LOVES this CD. Her tastes might just be growing beyond the boy bands, thank goodness. As for the music, it's all terrific.
