Album Notes
"This is one of the best recordings I've heard since I've been producing "HOUSEBLEND"--and for that matter in the 20+ years I've lived here and been involved in music production"

-Bob Swinson
SD Public Radio

"...the whole CD has an aura of folk music surrounded by fantastic guitar accompaniments...a smooth voice that has unbelievable carriage and flow beckons a person to drift away in the music".

- The Torch
Calgary, Alberta, Canada

Barry Hertz is a singer/songwriter from Calgary, Alberta, Canada who released his first CD entitled Sure Cure in the fall of 2000.

Hertz's CD includes eleven originals, many of which contain imagery from his boyhood, growing up in the rural Midwest. You Ain't From Dakota, Buffalo, Where the Green Grass Grows, Helldiver, and Three Old Friends, all connect in some way to his prairie upbringing. Another tune, Creation's Dawn, was previously released on a compilation disc, the John Muir Tribute CD(http://www.johnmuir.org/martinez/tribute_cd.html ). Creation's Dawn, along with songs by John Denver, Michael Martin Murphy, Kate Wolf, Dougie MacLean and others comprise a collection of music dedicated to John Muir, founding father of the Sierra Club. Another song, Buffalo, has been included on an Alberta compilation, Stand Your Ground (http://cd.activist.ca/volume1.html ).

Hertz began his musical career at an early age singing in the church choir and began writing songs in his teens when he first picked up a guitar. In the 1980's, he moved to northern Alberta to work as a beekeeper. The long winters were down time for the business and he soon found himself playing solo in the local hotels. It was not until the early 90's that he began writing in earnest. His efforts culminated with the release of Sure Cure.

Barry is currently working on his second CD of originals as well as a traditional CD, " A Cowboy's Prayer", songs from the poems of Badger Clark. Both are due to be released in late 2006 or early 2007.

Anele Eronel

strangly intreging, tickles the funny bone, and an unexpected find
This CD is strangly attractive. The music lures one into a world of environmental images. It is a teacher guiding its eager students into the world of ecology, and surprising them with unexpected turns of excitement and curiosity. One cannot help but to laugh and smile at the music present by this great teacher. It creates an image of quiet simplicity in an classroom full of flowing music like water from a fish tank.

Original, catchy, with reflective lyrics and smooth folky sound.
I truly enjoyed Sure Cure, from start to finish. I was hoping the journey wouldn't end, so I'll live in hope of a sophomore release. The mix of songs brought me to a neat place... I found myself reminiscing about times and places I haven't experienced, but somehow now feel I have. I may not be from Dakota, but listening to his upbeat state patriotism, I almost wish I was. Glad he likes me just the same.
