Cool Harmony!
Bought this album on the back of hearing New Frontier on the CD Baby Compilation CD.
Whilst nothing quite tops that track there are several great songs to enjoy..Little Candles being about the pick.
Anyone currently raving about Grand Drive and Josh Rouse should be eager to snap up this little gem too!

Stellar Writing and Killer Harmonies
I really don't like "country" music. But this CD is so refreshingly good - great songs, amazing harmonies. This is one of the ulimate "feel good" CDs. If you are bummed out after listening to this entire CD, you better seek medical attention immediately. Thanks Cactus Choir - you guys should be rich and famous.

An out of the way masterpiece
It seems that this record hardly ever got the hearing it so much deserves. But many thanks to CDBaby for keeping it available!

The songs are finely written--lyrics and music alike. The arrangements are rich, almost perfect. And the playing and singing are at once expert and effortless. The record is a real pleasure to listen to right out of the box. But it grows on you with each repeated listening--to an extent that is, quite frankly, genuinely rare.

I owe my wife a debt of gratitude for bringing this record into our lives. (She first heard Marty Atkinson singing Stephen Foster songs on "Swannee," and we've been fans ever since.) Check out Marty's "Big Plans," too. Absolutely first-rate song-writing.


great harmony, this band will be popular

CD Baby

Country fan or not, you can't deny that this beautiful and smoothly blended CD, with the lyricism and touching melodies of James Taylor, is above and beyond the norm of today's country pop. Whether you like your country tangy and twangy or just honestly reflective of the down-home wonders of simple livin', Cactus Choir Lightly brushes over CSNY harmonies, the old, 70's Kenny Loggins nostalgia and classic rock magic to please most everyone.

Alan Mosher

Musical Masterpiece
I've had this CD for a couple of years and never get tired of listening to the great songs. The harmonies and instrumentation are flawless. This album deserved a much wider exposure. It's a shame these guys didn't stay together and produce more of this wonderful music. For anyone who likes Country Rock and great harmony, this is a treasure.

Tony Reed

Excellent songs, arangements, and harmonys
This CD has the flavor that I as performer find so palatable. Not many groups can achieve such a wonderful blend of songs that I sit enthralled to listen, and then without thinking begin to sing along. These are the things that I strive for when I write and sing. Great Job!

Great songs and classic harmony
Cactus Choir is the real deal. This CD has several well-written songs that you just want to hear over and over. Vocal work is excellent with rich, layered harmonies that remind me of The Remingtons or Firefall. "Little Candles" is defintiely top 40 material. I will buy another CD from these guys as soon as they record one. Speaking of the recording....the sound quality is as good as the music!


This is amazing!

Steve Waite

This record deserves a much wider audience!
I've owned this CD for a few years now, but never got around to writing a review. Shame on me. This is a terrific recording!!! -- one that will surely stand the test of time. The ulimate test of music is how it sounds after repeated listenings over the passage of time. Cactus Choir has a 'dynamic quality' (to borrow a phrase from philosopher Robert Pirsig) that is reserved for some of the great recording artists of our time (pick your favorite band from the 60s and 70s). It's a shame a major label didn't pick up this record. I'd give the record ten stars if I could. Congrats on a fine outing, Marty. Thanks for sharing the love with us. God bless you, brother!
