Album Notes
Let's be honest. Most band bios and CD descriptions are exercises in two things: Writing about yourself in third person and using flowery, alliterative language. When you read something like "Cataldo's moody melodies shed light on obvious song-smithing prowess," you know who's writing that shit. Me. Eric Anderson.

"Cataldo" is a name I picked because "Eric Anderson and His Friends Who Play Music Well" didn't make a sensible acronym. That's who makes the recordings, that's who plays the shows, and that's how it will remain for the foreseeable future. Sometimes I play shows by myself. It's sort of like Bright Eyes without a drug addiction*. Why I picked that specific name is more complicated.

The Cataldo Mission is the oldest standing building in Idaho; rustic, elegant, and quietly enduring since the mid-19th century. Built by a Jesuit transplant named Father Ravalli, the Mission seems a picture of old world dignity and craftsmanship. In reality, it was created using simple tools, unpaid Indian labor, and cheap, provincial building materials. The internal frame was constructed using lumber cut and carried to the site. The chandeliers were made from tin cans. The 18-inch think walls were draped in fabric from Ft. Walla Walla, and are, in fact, hollow. Ravalli used simple materials to fashion something dramatic and serene, a testament to bucolic resourcefulness and ingenuity that remains to this day.

You can draw quite a few analogies based on that description, and some (probably most) are accurate and intentional. Ambiguity being a path to frustration, let me tell you a few things I definitely am. I am from Moscow, Idaho. I am in love with playing music. I am interested in saying hello and asking and answering questions. I am in debt. Please buy a CD.

Really fun to listen to
This CD is really fun to listen to; pretty exciting and upbeat acoustics. The songs are dynamic and don't drag (which I think can happen easily with acoustic guitar). Very fun album overall.. wish I could write, or even play songs like these with my guitar!

the yellow dart

read the review...
Good cds are hard to come by in this day and age of glam rock, hair bands and bell bottoms, but Cataldo shines through with honest melodies from the heart and catchy yet sophisticated acustic tunes that reflect a simpler time when all that mattered was a man and his guitar. This album is a must have for the audio-oriented music fan who likes good music in cd form. Seriously guy, stop reading reviews and get your dirty hands on this ear candy!


i really like this cd
i like this cd. i got it about a week ago and have been listening to it alot since i got it. this dude is talented and can write songs. Wedding Cake is great. and so is Headed Back to Boston. great cd that i'm glad i stumbled upon!


So I went to high school with this guy a while ago and I heard him play a few times, but when he cut his CD that's when I fell in love with him. It's amazing music with it's own unique sound. Buy it and buy it now, I promise you'll love it!
