Greg's web site/home page
Greg has recorded over 15 albums and was instrumental in
the creation of Red House Records. Greg sings a wide variety
of styles tht first song, Canned Goods is a wonderful one.
Many of his songs feature rural life, family, and fishing.
His shows almost always sell out. He has been on Prairie Home Companion for many years and has introduced audiences to
many other great musicians by having others tour with him
and open for him. These others were Garnet Rogers, Kelly
Joe Phelps, Kate Campbell, Bo Ramsey, Karen Savoca and Pete Heitzmann, and others. One of the charities he has worked
with is an Oregon project which combines a senior housing
with an orphanage.

That's the fellow, Kendall. Greg's a great guy with a generous heart. He was part of the family at The Folkway, where I got to know him. He's written some good songs, including "Early"...

"Early one morning I walked out alone,
I looked down the street; no one was around.
The sun was just comin' up over my home,
On Hickory Street in a little farm town.

And [chorus:] Oooo-ee, ain't the mornin' light pretty,
When the dew is still heavy, so bright and early.
My home on the range; it's a one-horse town,
And it's alright with me."

Now that is a good song. I see by the video that he was playing a Taylor guitar, so I guess he must be ok.

Hey there, Kendall. Yes, he's ok, and a good musician, and a real person writing about real life.

Something like you.   ;)

I'm sure Greg Brown has a lot of fans and he's a good performer, but when I listened to those two clips(greg 1 and 2), I honestly couldn't understand a word he was singing. OK, if I'd have known the songs beforhand, I'd probably hear him differently, but he seems to have reduced the language to a series of groans. Sorry, not my cup o'tea.

I saw Greg once at Stone Soup after hearing him many times on Prairie Home Companion. I noted that his audience was composed almost equally of men and women. Usually there are more women at SS concerts and some other venues I go to. I can see what people mean about him mumbling on these links, though. It's like listening to someone with an accent: the longer i listen, the easier he is to understand. On Youtube I usually prefer videos that show the singer performing. However, in his case I thought he was easier to understand on videos that just showed a CD cover or other still photo.

Those lyrics (the Poet Game) are great, thanks michael, here's some of them..

..I watched my country turn into a coast-to-coast strip mall and I cried out in a song: if we could do all that in thirty years, then please tell me you all - why does good change take so long? Why does the color of your skin or who you choose to love still lead to such anger and pain? And why do I think it's any help for me to still dream of playing the poet game?

Sirens wail above the fields - another soul gone down - another Sun about to rise. I've lost track of my mistakes, like birds they fly around and darken half of my skies. To all of those I've hurt - I pray you'll forgive me. I to you will freely do the same. so many things I didn't see, with my eyes turned inside, playing the poet game.

In Chicago '77 or so, the Ground Rounds were booking folk and Greg showed up one night, after leaving Vegas he said. The story was that he worked with Buck Ram of the Platters, and he was really into rock, more than folk. Then, he was the in-house guy on PHC, and did a great variety of material. About '86 or so, we booked him for a concert in San Diego and he was great. But, moving into this century, I agree, I can't understand what he is saying. Is this some kind of 'boomer thing' or returning to his '70's Bo Diddley/Clapton thing?
Whatever, I'd sure like to see one duet cd with Iris or maybe with the daughters. Best song IMHO - his recording of Rooty Toot Toot! A man of great lyrics and great grooves.
Chris
ps - Early is Early,Iowa,from when Greg was touring on a state grant.
Love singing that.

I just saw Greg a couple weeks ago, for about the 5th time. He tends to experiment with (some of) his songs over time, he's not one of those people who sound exactly like their recordings. I'm not a fan of that procedure but hey he's an arteest. Maybe this is where the so-called mumbling slips in, though I've never noticed it myself. I think the sound quality is probably pretty poor on cell phone youtube clips. ;-) If I could sing like anyone it would be like Greg, but I'd have to swallow a couple of 100 gallon barrels to sound like him.

I was listening to the Folk Directions podcast (CKUT) and Gerry played a song from Greg's new cd. He must have been reading this, because his diction was great, as well as the song!! Looking at the picture, tho, maybe it's another fellow - this guy looks older than us! New Greg Brown
