Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Singer-songwriter Jonathan Edwards released this charming debut record in 1971. The album gained some mainstream attention thanks to the catchy political-pop single "Sunshine." Featuring rustic, acoustic-based ballads, and up-tempo numbers like "Train of Glory," Edwards's warm, gentle voice was surrounded by a group of empathic musicians collectively known as Orphan. Edwards sang his homespun tunes in a casual, easy manner, while accompanying himself on acoustic guitar and harmonica. The emotional centerpiece on this album is "Sometimes," a touching ode to the early-morning memories of a love long gone. A convincing vocalist armed with a batch of heartfelt compositions, Jonathan Edwards typified the young, folkie troubadours that were popular in the early '70s. In retrospect, this recording was also his finest effort. --Mitch Myers

Product Description

The DJ, when asked, just told me it was a very hard to find Jonathan Edwards album.
Randy
His songs reflect a very heartfelt emotion, but he does it through extremely catchy riffs, a beautiful, gentle voice and wonderful harmonies.
Brian Driver
One thing very noticable in this recording is what a great singer Jonathan Edwards is.

The late 60s / early 70s was ripe with folk and country talent like Steve Goodman, John Prine and James Taylor. Interestingly enough, Jonathan Edwards is not generally mentioned within the same breath or musical genre. His debut album is filled with wonderful, melodic tunes that rival his contemporaries. You'll undoubtedly buy the album for 'Sunshine' and 'Shanty' but will enjoy the 10 "supporting tracks" equally. A soft and gentle voice reminiscent of James Taylor and surrounded by superior musical talent provided by himself and band. As a 'folk junkie', I may be predisposed to this genre of music - I am, needless to say, a huge fan of this album and place it proudly with Goodman, Prine, Ochs, Bromberg, Koloc, Holstein(s), etc. etc. etc.

I was recently at my aunt's house in NY and we stopped over to her boyfriends house to feed all of his animals and I was looking through his collection of CDs and came upon this CD by Jonathan Edwards and curiously, I asked my aunt about it. She told me that is was a very good album that I would enjoy very much. So I put it on and instantly I was amazed. The guitar and the harmonica are great, but his voice is so UNBELIEVABLE! I can't believe what a great CD it is. All folk, blues and classic rock fans so own this CD! It is just simply amazing!

Back in the early 70's I (Carl) had three of his albums, which I played constantly. I was deprived of this pleasure by a flood in '81--and have been searching ever since. His music is light, sensitive and sweet. In concert he blazed with energy and dominated the stage. This first of his albums (to my knowledge) of course has the well-known "Sunshine" and Jesse Colin Young's "Shanty"--practically anthems of that era--the other cuts, however, are far from filler. Should would like to have the other two from back then--one was Honky Tonk Stardust Cowboy, but I can't remember the other title...

Not a voice anybody else has got anything like. A single made the radio but don't be fooled, the album is a whole piece of genuinely fine cloth. Only a hunch but I'd bet more than a few folks called singer/songwriters today listened to this record over and over growing up. Like Nilsson Schmilsson, which also came out in 1971, it surely don't sound thirty years old.

If you buy this album just because you like the song "Sunshine," it's well worth it. You can't help but feel good when listening to this classic. Any graduates of Ohio University or anyone who's partied at the legendary "party school" of Southeastern Ohio will appreciate Edwards' ode to "Athens County." I judge albums by how many songs I have to skip through while listening. There's no "skip throughs" on this one! A wonderful mix of bluegrass, folk, country, rock and blues, this is a classic that's perfect for your "Sunday Morning collection." Enjoy!

I LOVE THIS ALBUM. I always loved "Sunshine" from the very first time I heard it in the 70's but I never bought this CD till now. This CD is what 70's music is all about. Great songs with lots of acoustic guitar and banjo. If you like James Taylor, John Denver and Jim Croce I doubt very much you will be disappointed.

The track "Sometimes" just plain down right flat out brings tears to my eyes it's so good! If you've ever lost someone you wish you had back, you will relate.

Jonathan Edwards is an unsung hero.His music is so full of flavor and life.A radio station in my area used to have what they call "desert island tapes"--if you were stranded on a desert island and you had three peices of music allowed for an indefinite amount of time--what would you pick?

This would be one pick of mine.Its that good.It is soothing,heartfelt and even funny.I have never met anyone who didnt like this album after being turned on to it.Jonathan has a voice of gold and the music is terrific.The only thing i would say is buy it!---you will not regret it.
