Editorial Reviews

Singer-songwriter Catie Curtis's albums always arrive as elegant, but unassuming, presents. Like those of her friend, Mary Chapin Carpenter, who guests here with gorgeous alto harmonies on "Water and Stone," Curtis's songs are beautifully and deceptively well crafted, her production tastefully understated, and her singing so heartbreakingly pure, pained, and devoid of artifice as to suggest she knows not only your secrets, but your soul. The theme that runs through these 12 disarming songs is one of reconnection, both with a lover and with the world, but in a way that makes things better--that makes a difference. "People Look Around," a song about the aftermath of Katrina that Curtis co-wrote with Mark Erelli, won the 2006 International Songwriting Competition grand prize, beating out 15,000 entries from 82 countries. But there are other songs here that might have done the same. Curtis is at her emotional best when she is full of longing that won't be resolved, when she gives voice to feelings that refuse to stay hidden, and when she acts on desires that won't be dismissed. "Find You Now," with its imagery of seeing a potential lover's headlights crawl across her bedroom wall, is a perfect example. But it's the chorus--"Did you drop your flowers / Underneath the bridge / They're floating on a river / Blowing like a kiss"--that destroys you. Despite her 15 years of playing and criss-crossing the country, Curtis has yet to achieve the notoriety and status she deserves. But perhaps deliverance is only on the other side of this Long Night Moon. --Alanna Nash

Product Description

With a dedicated fan base across the U.S. and Europe and with help from Mary Chapin Carpenter and an impressive roster of seasoned players, Catie Curtis' latest release, Long Night Moon, is one of the most highly-anticipated releases of 2006 for devot‚s of the singer-songwriter tradition. With ten years of recordings under her belt, the songs on Long Night Moon speak deftly in the voice of a woman who understands fully the joys and frustrations of adulthood without compromising the wit and gentle spirit that have always characterized her work. Backed by a stellar band including John Jennings (Mary Chapin Carpenter), John Sands (Aimee Mann), Mark Rivard (Morphine, Shawn Colvin), Kevin Barry (Paula Cole, Jonatha Brooke). The CD was produced by Lorne Entress

5.0 out of 5 stars Catie lives up to her usual..... January 9, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Catie Curtis lives up to her usual singer songwriter talents in her latest endeavor, Long Night Moon. However, the quality of this album surpasses her other CD's which I would rate at least 4 out of a high 5. Her writing is more mature and insightful and the music more varied. I look forward to the next one and the one following. Catie is a rare gem!

5.0 out of 5 stars Hey Massachusetts March 4, 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I've owned (and not frequently listened to) two earlier albums by Catie Curtis. By chance, I've given this one enough listens to get to know it. And I like what I hear. I'm going to go back and get to know the earlier ones in my collection.

This album reflects both a social conscience of trying to make the world a better place when you leave it than it was when you entered it (Passing Through). It also has considerable sass ("Hey California"), a very musical and whimsical comparison of life in Beantown and life in California (more specifically LA).

The album is well produced, with Ms. Curtis' voice the first instrument, but also has a full "background section" of guitar, bass, drums, etc., limited to times when it is appropriate.

I'm not quite sure whether I'd call this a great "singer/songwriter" album or a great "contemporary folk" album. Either way, it's great.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful music March 8, 2007
By Kyla H.
Format:Audio CD
I purchased this after reading a review in Adoptive Families. I have enjoyed listening to every track...but Goodnight Moon is still my favorite. Catie Curtis is so talented...I just wish I would have found her earlier!

Well worth the money...I highly recommend the CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ocean of Dreams November 8, 2006
Format:Audio CD
It's hard to believe that it's been 10 years since Catie Curtis' brilliant "Truth From Lies" brought her a national audience. Her self titled CD in 1997, "Crash Course in Roses" in 1999, "My Shirt Looks Good on You" in 2001 & "Dreaming in Romance Languages" in 2004 followed. She has consistently shown a stunningly original sense of melody with great lyrical complexity. "Long Night Moon" continues this tradition of excellence, being one of her most satisfying sets.

The delightful opening track "Find You Now" pulses appealingly. "Strange" percolates with Catie's finger-style guitar & producer Lorne Entress' mandolin, "I remember when you said to me, that candy that you fed to me, anyone could leave someone." "Water & Stone" is a track whose lovely melody and pulsing beat grow on you along with Mary Chapin Carpenter joining on harmony, "All that you want, why I never knew, all that you wanted to lose." "It's a Wonder" has an airy melody placed in a gentle acoustic setting that celebrates the joy of having a person to love. "Rope Swings & Avalanches" addicts you with its breezy melody about letting go. "People Look Around" was written with Mark Erelli with a catchy melody & a strong political message, "When the water is rising & there is no higher ground, you can wave your hands up on the roof, but you might be left to drown." It's excellent. "Passing Through" is also an excellent song written with Mark Erelli with its gentle refrain urging us to try to leave the world a better place than we find it. "Hard Times with Goodbyes" is a cheerful tune, "Make the world a little better, pass some love along." The set ends with the title track, a gentle lullaby that says goodnight. This mostly acoustic set highlights some of Catie's best vocals & songwriting, a jewel among a VERY strong body of work." Enjoy!

3.0 out of 5 stars Long Night Moon January 9, 2007
By L G
Format:Audio CD
I wasn't wrapped in this album. Catie Curtis has a great voice and the production is excellent, but the lyrics and the subject matter were a bit twee. She's obviously rejoicing in life with her kids and all and giving out messages about how great this planet is and how we need to care for it and each other, but listening to this album was a bit like going to a meeting of happy clappers. It didn't work for this Aussie.

4.0 out of 5 stars Jimmy Cash January 4, 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
You know, I purchased this c-d upon hearing the track "WATER & STONE".When I played the entire disc the first time, I really wasn't that impressed. But,as I heard other tracks played on the radio, I realized how good this recording is. Catie is an excellent singer-songwriter,worthy of attention. Pick up this c-d, you will not be disappointed, J.C.
