BuckMulligan Review: Leave The Light On - Chris Smither (2) Review: Leave The Light On - Chris Smither 20 Oct 06

I've been meaning to post a review of Chris Smither's new album "Leave the Light On" but I'm too busy re-listening in order to be able to write something more intelligent than "Oooh, aahhh, jeez, Chris Smither's the balls, gettiznooceedee"

But in the meantime, Chris Smither IS the balls (IMO, of course), and you SHOULD get his new CD. He's 62 or 63, by the way, and mentions it on the title track of "Leave the Light On" which is one of the better tracks on a CD with no bad tracks. "I've been left for dead before, but I still fight on"

Of special interest to some here may be "Origin of Species" which is a pretty laid-back take on another way of looking at the notion of "intelligent design" and his take on Dylan's "Visions of Johanna." It's as good as Smither gets without an audience to bounce off.
