ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Cris Cuddy has outdone himself on this one. Every song a journey going exactly where
you want it to go. It's a testament to the quality of the songwriting and vocalizing when
an album of such basic instrumentation feels so rich and diverse."
- Bob Bryden

"They Don't Make Them Like That Anymore" is the title of one of the songs on this album
by Ontario country songsmith Cris Cuddy (no relation to Jim, apparently). You could
almost say that about this record, as it's a faithfully old-school country album happily
devoid of contemporary trappings. Cuddy's fourth album is acoustic-based and free
of drums, placing the focus squarely on his voice and songs. Both hold up to the
scrutiny, possessing the honesty and integrity required by the genre. The title track
in part pays tribute to Merle Haggard and "They Don't Make Like That Anymore" is
dedicated to Hank Cochran and Mickey Newbury, showing that Cuddy has a sense of
history about his chosen style. He has assembled an A-list band, featuring Keith Glass
(Prairie Oyster) and Dennis Pendrith (Bruce Cockburn), plus guests Emory Lester,
Bob Taillefer, Cam MacInnis and other Oyster-ites Dennis Keldie and John P. Allen.
Pedal steel, mandolin, banjo, fiddle and accordion are all used judiciously to flesh out
the sound. Cuddy sparkled on 2011's Diamond Shine, and this is an equally worthy
effort. Kudos for including a dedication to Levon Helm.
