I have been a fan of David Lee Murphy since my wife began listening to country radio just about the time that Party Crowd was released in 1995.
David Lee's is a story that makes you happy that he has moxie and wouldn't quit. After more than 10 years of honing his craft, he finally broke through in 1994. Since then, he recorded 3 albums, was not resigned by MCA in 1997, and has been without a recording contract until now.
His latest record continues his tradition of crafty songwriting, with plenty of memory making melodies and inventive chorus lines, along with more generous use of old fashion country musical tastings (more prominence given to the fiddle and steel guitar). Although the song "Loco" cracked the top 5 in July, in my opinion, there are several stronger cuts that make this a record worth your time and attention. "I Like It Already" kicks off the record with a strong, party sound and toe tapping beat. Song 4 on the CD (not listed on amazon.com) is called "Own Little World", and I think it has the best shot at being another top 10 song, as it has the strongest chorus and melody mix on the CD. The title cut "Tryin' To Get There", may say a lot about David Lee's perspective on the music business and his aspirations to remain a part of it.Read more ›
Favorite, can't really say that I have one but as "MAMA'S LAST" is one that he has done live at concerts I would have to say that it get's a little more attention than the others. The inside cover of this CD says "Meant To Be Played As Loud As Your Speakers Will Allow" After listening to this CD let me advise you IT CAN'T BE ANY OTHER WAY.
David lee, just when we think you can't get any better you show us.
And you know as the final chord of Killin The Pain hits, THE BEST IS YET TO COME.
I know people who aren't big country fans and weren't big David Lee fans but after this CD, they are. What Talent he has always had, to write, and perform his own songs, and to also have others do the same. He may have been silent for the last 8 years but we're hearing him loud and clear.
TOTALLY AWESOME JOB.

That wonderfully fun party song "Loco" alone makes this album worth purchasing, but you'll love the other tracks as much. Every song on this album could easily be a hit. Read morePublished on August 18, 2004 by fruitloop
