Album Notes

"These songs burn brightly. Lampos sure knows how to write, and he seems to sell his songs to the listener effortlessly. Sure, it's hard work, but all the better when it sounds so seamless." Aiding and Abetting, Issue #198. April 17, 2000

"On his new album, "Starlight Theatre", the singer/guitarist plays along a thin line between the visible and invisible. The concept may sound sort of new agey, but the songwriter is really a down-to-earth guy. It's more Bob Dylan than Deepak Chopra. Lampos writes like a poet...(and) wraps his lyrics around hummable melodies. With a crack three piece band--Lampos concocts a roots-rock stew full of blues, folk, and country. Lampos is a true original." The Virginian-Pilot, Norfolk/Virginia Beach, VA May 26, 2000

"Demonstrating a crossover proficiency in multiple musical genres, Jim Lampos' releases would require placement in multiple locations within a music store, in order for justice to be done. But his one constant is literate lyrics that quite often could stand alone as poetry. Lampos displays exceptional descriptive ability and the knack for capturing energy and emotion, sometimes subtly, sometimes rambuctiously throughout this release.

Without any intent to diminish the musical settings surrounding the lyrics, this will be a wonderful discovery for those who are elevated by the written word. Lampos has the gift." Celtic and Folk Music CD Reviews, Kevin McCarthy. June 2000 http://www.surfnetusa.com/celtic-folk/index.html
