GUEST,Jeri Jed Marum's Excellent CD!! - Streets of Fall River (26) RE: Jed Marum's Excellent CD!!!!! 05 Nov 01

I've had this CD for a few weeks, and it's a rare occasion when it's not in my car CD player. It's not there now. I loaned it to Bat Goddess as a teaser. She gave it back on Fri night, and I had it in my hand for about a minute and a half. Then I told Dave he'd like it. Dave says "I never heard of that guy. Can I borrow it?" (Those last two sentances would ONLY come from a folkie!) So now he's got it, and I'll work on the guilt thing: "Buy it, Dave. Poor musician so hard up he had to move to Texas. Give him a break for crying out loud!"

I love this CD, and I would love it even if Jed weren't a Mudcatter; even if I hadn't met him. The songs are so lovingly crafted, so strong in imagery and simple at the same time, they continue to blow me away. The tunes are beautiful, haunting or driving, and get stuck in my head, but I'm quite happy to have them there.

His voice is sort of Don Henley meets Jackson Browne, - the voice is Jed's. Frankly, after this one, I'll buy any CD he ever puts out. Pickin' ain't bad, neither.
