Album Notes
Cozy, jam-like, unprocessed and straightforward. These could be the benchmarks for CDs from John Bergstrom.
Vocally he nudges toward the Burl Ives direction but with more sand. Accompaniment is provided by John Nelson (banjo & guitar), David Jackson (bass & accordion), Jesse Olema (fiddle), Tom Corbett (mandolin) and Gency Brown (harmony vocals). And very much a vintage effect it is, which suits Bergstrom’s material. His are frequently ballads done in tribute to or stories about western heroes. Songs like “Daybreak Moon” and “Red Rocks of Sedona” are literal, the song “Lawmen” is about lawmen and so on, no muss-no fuss! “Come Waltz With Me” seems like a visit from a bygone era and John’s fans like it that way.
Some of those fans’ more requested songs (like “Latchkey Cowboy” and “Western State of Mind”) have received remakes here among the new material. As John puts it, “it’s some things old, some things new, some things borrowed (‘Mexicali Rose’ & John Zipperer’s ‘Ballad of Micah McDowde’ ) and a little bit of blues!” Fourteen tracks.
