Mountain Home, the sixth studio record from Austin, Texas-based songwriter Owen Temple, is a collection of songs and stories about eccentric characters set in small towns and on the fringes of big cities. Mountain Home may be his strongest collection yet.

The characters are all on edge- on the verge of freedom, catastrophe, and hope- and the songs tell of strange happenings in rural ... Read more in Amazon's Owen Temple Store

Editorial Reviews


Small towns have a kind of stark, quiet beauty to them. Even after Wal-Marts move in and decimate Main Street, there's still a solemn dignity in those boarded up storefronts and dusty, ramshackle feed stores. Kerrville native Owen Temple writes about these places, as common to Texas as they are to Indiana or Alabama.

Produced by steel mogul Lloyd Maines, these two albums are a good pair. It'd be easy enough to lump Temple in with Texas singer-songwriters like the Robison brothers and Robert Earl Keen, but he leans more toward country and away from the folk side of the equation.

Maines has brought in some heavy hitters to the sessions, such as Terri Hendrix, Darcy Deville, Bukka Allen, Rich Brotherton, and John Inmon, with the results sounding down-to-earth and unpretentious. Of the two, Passing Through finds Temple hitting his stride lyrically and thematically, his voice free of country affectations, kind of like a younger Gary P. Nunn or Jerry Jeff Walker. Often with singer-songwriters, there's a trade-off involved where the execution can't match the songwriting, but Temple and Maines balance the two nicely and capture the lonesome-feel small-town scenarios. It's as familiar as a beat-up Martin D-28 guitar, as comfortable as a worn-out pair of jeans, and as evocative as a metal Texaco sign flapping in the breeze in front of a boarded-up gas station, storm clouds brewing in the distance. --Austin Chronicle

5.0 out of 5 stars Always in my CD player March 4, 2000
Format:Audio CD
I bought this CD without having heard any of the songs and has become one of my all-time favorites. The album overall has a very cool theme - life in the Southwest and how small town America has changed. The songs are great, some upbeat, some laid-back, all definitely worth hearing.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Best July 20, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Owen Temple is one of the best country singers out there, and this CD shows he can write really well too. Not as upbeat as his first one, and not as radio-friendly as his third, but my personal favorite. If you're looking for the real deal on Texas country, it's this guy. I saw him in concert recently, if you get a chance go. It's worth your time.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good. Not Great. January 26, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Don't get me wrong...I'm pleased with the CD, but I was expecting a Robt Earl Keen or Pat Green sound. This is much more laid back and at times reminds me of some slower George Strait. A good CD if that's what you're looking for. STILL BETTER THAN MAINSTREAM COUNTRY RADIO! By far.
