ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This is my new CD,with all my touring I haven\'t had much time to be in the
studio.This is all me, I played all the guitars did all the arangements,all the
Precussion,and all the vocals.It only took 4 days 3 to record and over dub
and one to mix and master.I did this at the same place I do all of my recordings
\"Black wing Studio\'s in Marysville Washington.Raven Humphres owner and
operator.Raven sure knows how to get my sound.He\'s a great enginener.
It was done in June of 2008,just before my 60th birthday(7-11-2008)...
All covers this time out just songs I\'ve always liked.I hope you enjoy them
too.This is just one review...
David Brewer is an artist who defies convention. His new CD is an extension
of his move to more solo performances in recent years(ease of touring reportedly being part of the advantage).But make no mistake-there\'s nothing
\"acoustic\"about Brewer\'s live performances,or about his approach on this CD!
The absence of bass or drums here doesn\'t mean the tunes rock any less-
Brewer\'s music is still centered around his big,fat,electric guitar sound and
his driving sense of rhythm.
Brewer takes great pride in his American Indian heritage(if you don\'t know
the history of the \"Ghost Dance\"in those desperate last days of the plains
wars,I suggest you check it out-part of the story is included in the liner
notes)and this music is firmly rooted in the land we continue to uneasily
occupy together,transcending genres,all song that Brewer has made totally
his own.Music of North America-strong,plain,honest,straight ahead music,
accurately reflecting the man who makes it.
The recording is well done here-Brewer plays all guitars,in layers,with his
late fathers arch-top acoustic on the bottom,and electric rhythm laid over
that,and those patented soaring lead solos over the top.Vocals are right
front,with harmony tracks coming in at times.Tambourine and various
shakers and percussion are woven into the sound,but the driver for this music
is always guitar;that from-the-elbow kind of rhythm-playing.This kind of
one-man-plays-it-all project is tricky-I\'ve heard CDs done this way that
sound stiff and artificial-but Brewer\'s CD has an integrated,organic feel to
it that works throughout.
The tunes on this CD range from a Chuck Berry classic,\"You Can\'t Catch ME\"
to the old C&W favorite \"Crazy Arms,\"to more recent songs by Greg Allman
and Billy Gibbons of Z.Z.Top.All of these tunes are well suited to Brewer\'s
eclectic style,and they all sound perfectly well-worn,like David\'s been living
these songs,and the life they describe,for as long as any of us can remember.
And you know what? That\'s the truth,right there!
Mark Dalton-Fall 2008
