WALKING AMONG THE LIVING is the perfect blend of bluegrass and contemporary country, with sawing fiddles fitting right in with rhythmic drums and electric guitars. The song choices are pure country--songs of Southern living, of heartbreak, of death, of rejuvination, or finding yourself. While "Whiskey Lullabye" is certainly a beautiful tune, it almost pales in comparison to other tracks available here. "Baby Won't You Come Home" is a delight to hear; "No Southern Comfort" got this Yankee wishing he'd been born south of the Mason-Dixon Line; "I Shouldn't Do This" is a classic cheatin' song; "Austin" is quirky, funny, and socially-relative; "Lonely For Awhile" is a truly haunting track about not being ready to get over someone; and "In the Country" will take you to the backwoods at midnight, with just you and the stars and the one you love. All of these songs are well-written and superbly performed; this is an album you don't want to miss. While there is some potential here for radio success, I doubt there will be any; doesn't mean this isn't a great album, though. In fact, in country music especially, there's an unwritten rule that the best artists don't get the airtime they deserve. Does Jon Randall qualify as one of those artists? Listen to WALKING AMONG THE LIVING, and decide for yourself.
This CD has something for everyone, no matter what style of music you like -- country, rock, blues, bluegrass -- it's all in there! I highly recommend this CD!
Jon Randall has enlisted some impressive instrumental and vocal support for the project. "No Southern Comfort" has Alison Krauss' silky smooth backup, while Patty Loveless belts out harmony for "I Shouldn't Do This." The title cut could well be his theme song as this solo debut project will open a new chapter for this talented singer and songwriter. The juxtaposition of organ and banjo in the song's arrangement emphasizes his desire to simply make good music that knows no boundaries.Read more ›
