Album Notes
"California — principally from Bakersfield and south - has long bred roots rockers who favor a lean, but muscular approach. It's a line that zig-zags from Richie Valens to Buck Owens to X to Dwight Yoakam. David Serby continues this fine tradition. In fact, his debut disc suggests what the Blasters might have liked if they favored country more than R&B. The toe-tapping twang-a-billy leadoff track Red Lipstick and French Perfume could easily fit in on a Blasters. Serby's vocals very strongly recall Phil Alvin's country croon, although his voice is a softer, gentler side. This quality increases the sense of vulnerability in his heartache-filled songs like the cheater's tale I Learned My Lesson and the gambler's saga Down To The Felt. His working man's ode Dirt Beneath My Nails might not be as gritty as a Dave Alvin effort but it holds a nice nostalgic feel. Similarly, the quietly wistful Cannonball Trail takes a fond look back at childhood. What separates Serby from the typical honky tonking roots rocker is his sharp songwriting skills. He displays a real talent for turning a phrase without turning it into country clichés. On the title track, he sings: "the California King's too big for one man all alone" to concisely yet vividly portray a man's loneliness and, in another song, he comes with the memorable metaphor: "It's time we cut this deck in two/'cause we've been playing Solitaire" to describe a crumbling marriage. His excellent lyric writing also is prominently showcased on the disc's closer The Day That We Moved In where he compares a couple's last day together in a house with the day that they moved in. Serby is well served here by producer/multi-instrumentalist Ed Tree and his veteran backing crew (including Skip Edwards and J.D. Maness but they mainly just stand back and let Serby shine brightly on his confident, impressive debut."

I can't live without this CD.
There's old-time poetry to David Serby's songs. Each song tells a story -- some make you want to dance, some make you want to drink -- and all make you believe Dave's a man who knows how to do both.

What a debut album!
This debut CD from David Serby is a must have CD in a country musis collection.
Hard core traditional country get you nailed from the first uptempo song to the last.
"Red Lipstick And French Perfume" complete with stand up bass, try to keep your feet from tapping on this song, I cannot.
"Santa Ana Winds", "I Learned My Lesson" and "Our Last Resort" to name a few favorites.
Do your self a favor and grab a copy today, you won't regret it.

Cannonball Trail and Memories
Cannonball Trail bring is a nice song abouth youth and simplicity. Close your eyes and and you can almost envision the artist running by the campfire, and into the woods. I can......

Totaly down to earth, coffee house country
The songs are very original and up beat. "Cannonball Trail" really makes me want to go back to the place I grew up as a child, and "Last Resort" makes me want to dance.
