Editorial Reviews

There comes a time in a musician's career that tribute be paid to the material that originally inspired. Angels, Castles, Covers is Vance's tip of the hat to the many songs that he's admired, loved, coveted, and covered over a 20 plus year career.

The album is a daring, brilliant mix of his and fan favorite ''cover'' songs. How many acoustic albums do you know that have a version Al Green's I'm So Tired Of Being Alone with accordion and mandolin? Sam Cooke's A Change Is Gonna Come and Jimi Hendrix's Castles Made Of Sand get classic Vance Gilbert solo acoustic treatment. Motown is represented by the grooving Vance /Lori McKenna duet Aint Nothin' Like The Real Thing, a solo excursion of Aretha Franklin's hit Until You Come Back To Me (That's What I'm Gonna Do), and an inspired and introspective reading of Stevie Wonder's Heaven Help Us All with vocal guest Tracy Grammar. Joni Mitchell's A Case Of You and Shawn Colvin's Cry Like An Angel get lovingly recreated on this disc. Rainy Night In Georgia, Save The Last Dance For Me, and It Wouldn't Have Made Any Difference finish this list of classics that are Vance's treasures and now ours as well.

I saw Vance Gilbert in concert about 3 years ago in a little coffee house in upstate New York. I was truly amazed by his singing voice. He has a wonderful sense of humor and combined with his music, it makes for a great evening of fun. Some of his songs are so haunting...esp. Unfamilar Moon.
If you ever get a chance to see him in person, do so. But his music is well worth buying.

I bought this CD because I recently saw Vance Gilbert in concert. He is a phenomenal performer-hysterically funny and extremely talented and versatile. While this CD does not highlight his great sense of humor, it does highlight his incredible voice. I will definitely buy more of his CD's in the future!

The songs covered on this disc fit Vance's voice very nicely. The songs are all classics and Vance puts himself into them without changing the essence of the songs. I especially like "Heaven Help Us All" and "A Change is Gonna Come". This guy's got soul. Like the reviewers before me, I recommend seeing him live - it's a great experience!

We still talk about the great night we spent in Ridgefield Ct. listening to Vance Gilbert. None of us knew him prior to catching him there. It was so terrific! Beyond all expectations. See him in person if you can.
