Biography

It would be easy for Tom Russell to coast on reputation alone. With a career stretching back nearly four decades, and a catalog of more than 20 albums, the consummate storyteller has amassed a devoted following that cherishes his vivid, novelistic tales evoking the spirit of the American experience in tightly constructed, panoramic vignettes. Among his most ardent fans are fellow artists: ... Read more in Amazon's Tom Russell Store

Twice in my life, while driving in heavy freeway traffic, I've heard songs so good on the radio that I had to pull off the road and collect my thoughts. Turns out Tom Russell wrote both of 'em. If you don't just like to chew gum in time with the music, if you really listen to what's being communicated via a song, you owe it to yourself to buy heaps of Tom Russell. Start with this one to see what I mean. Avoid traffic accidents, listen to this stuff for the first time in a safe place.

This CD turned me from being a casual fan of Mr. Russell's to being convinced he is the finest singer/songwriter of the 90's. His song are well crafted tales on the lessons of life. Songs such as Veteran's Day, The Eyes of Roberto Duran and The Angel of Lyon are classics and seem more intimate performed live. If you are a fan of John Hiatt, Dave Alvin, Lucinda Williams or other artists of this nature, treat yourself to the remarkable CD.

If there ever has been an underrated singer/songwriter - tom russell goes for top rank.
His 89er - "Road to Bayamon" already was a record to take to the famous island, but "long way" simply leaves you in awe. Handmade music? - very true, but more than this : soulmade music played with a heart full of poetry, rhythm and ...honesty
Fame, money, gold awards - he deserves them all but he does not sound to be particularly interested - he does not fit the charts, those "do you remember..." names - his work will survive decades while the so called "big shots" earn the headlines and are forgotten in no time.
Buy Tom Russell - his music is a lifetime companion!

I continue to be dismayed at the lack of recognition for Tom Russell. This CD is outstanding, as are most of his efforts. Russell, Robert Earl Keen, a few others do really good work, but never seem to hit the mainstream. But good work, here. Thanks, Tom Russell. Good CD!

Tom Russell continues to be one of America's finest unknown artists. In this album, he recreates some of his best work and intersperses the album with live performances that give you the impression of being at one of his wonderful concerts. His lyrics tell wonderful stories and Andy Hardin's guitar will awe you. Definitely one for your collection.
