Album Notes
"Pensive, thoughtful, brooding, dark, mysterious, are but some of the adjectives that could be applied to the music of Bobby Pennock, and perhaps to the man himself.
Bobby's smooth tenor and accomplished guitar playing put Bobby in a class by himself, and perfectly suit his folk-rock compositions. You will hear new things, and discover new shades of meaning each time you listen to these masterfully crafted song-stories."
--From the Counter Clockwise Music website--

You can find Detroit-based Bobby out and about performing solo, as part of The Pennock Stephens Project (w/ acclaimed singer/songwriter Michael Stephens), or with the electric Bobby Pennock Band.

I just love this CD. I have heard Bobby live and was very pleased to hear this CD - he was able to bring more depth to his music. My favorite songs are IN TIME, followed by SIREN'S SONG, AND DEAR I. And I especially like that cute little drummer boy at the end of track 12 ROUND PEG IN A SQUARE WORLD. I have listened to this CD pretty much continously for the last 4 days and hear something new every time. Very original and great sound. Fun and sometimes soothing. I'd recommend it to anyone interested in something new and different. Keep the music coming.


I absolutely LOVE this CD! Bobby Pennock's CD reminds me of Matthew Sweet's "In Reverse" which I can never hear enough of. It's mellow, it's rock, it's everything on one CD - he really gave us the entire package. And who is this Danny Hess? What a phenomenal drummer! Gifted guy ... he'll go far!


Song Birds, Whale Songs, and Ukuleles...
...are not heard on many albums, but you'll find them all here. You also hear sleigh bells, a kalimba, a dobro, a tuba, a harpischord, and of course the usual suspects; guitar, bass, drums, piano. This record is RICH in sounds and substance, and gets more interesting with subsequent listens. Bobby Pennock has done something very refreshing here - a 15 song album and all the songs are like snowflakes: unique. Nowadays most albums are basically the same song repeated 13 times, but not this record. Each song has a different vibe completely, but the album manages to be cohesive and consistently interesting. All the performances from the army of musicians are strong, vocals are spot on and loaded with great harmonies, but it's the songs themselves that really stand out with their clever turns of phrase and a certain amount of wry wit. This is no light weight undertaking and Mr. Pennock should be very proud of his accomplishment. He'll be more proud if you buy it, and I'll be proud if you buy it based on this clumsy review.

So the cd review.....

I hear...
A bit of the tight harmony in the style of the Beatles...the storytelling style of Harry Chapin...the environmental awareness of John Denver (birds twittering, hiding in the garden?)...the guitar style of the best groups of the 60's,(not that I was old enough to know!), 70's and 80's...the cool tones of the bluesy singers...the sense of fun of the Monkees...somewhat of the style of the guy (Maclean?) who did American Pie...And what does all of this add up to?



10,000 stories is the bees knees
When I first heard 10,000 stories I was really quite relieved to hear such original yet familiar music. The themes in the songs are based on the strongest life content, making it better and better to hear each time. I dig the variety and genuineness of this album, and the singer is great! 5 stars here!

coincidence ? I think not.
Coincidence? Last weekend I was over at R. Starkey's house having lunch with James Taylor and Al Jardine. Later that afternoon Pink Floyd stopped by with Gordon Lightfoot and a bottle of wine. They asked if we had any David Crosby music. We put on the Pennock CD instead and everyone enjoyed it.


Intoxicating CD
Great stories with awesome execution. Shades of The Beatles and Monkees but with some real Pink Floyd shadings...production and musical execution are sharp and familiar yet are ripe with original and well executed twists....would go well with a bottle of Boone Farm or a nice Port! Hoping the Bob's next CD is the works.
