Album Notes
It's been said that musicians get to spend their whole lives making their first record. For guitarist, singer/songwriter, and harmonica player, Mark Jungers (pronounced "Youngers"), that pretty much happens to be the case. Nearly twenty years after he joined his first band, Jungers has finally released his recording debut, the remarkable Black Limousine. American heartland music rooted deep in the soil, this is an evocative collection of alternative country songs in the well-traveled tradition of Steve Earle, Joe Ely, and Son Volt. Produced by bassist and high harmony singer Dave Ray- with whom Jungers played with in the late '80s /early '90s Austin band, The Masons- Black Limousine features Adrian Schoolar on lead guitar and harmony vocals, Bobby Snell (Charlie Robison Band) on pedal steel, Wes Green on mandolin, Rachael Dreas on fiddle, Dave Boyle (Scabs) on Hammond B-3, and Phil Bass (Monte Montgomery Band) on drums.
Black Limousine is the by-product of Jungers' years of songwriting experience & commitment to the art of song craft. His motivation is clearly less commercial than it is artistic. No wonder AudioGalaxy called his music "unabashedly populist." It's not that Mark would look down his nose at a financial windfall, but he knows that monetary success (or the pursuit thereof) often comes at the expense of more personal concerns. As Winton Porterfield perceptively wrote in The Chautauquan, "Mark's music reflects time on the farm, time on the road, and a sense of the heartland." In the end, then, Mark Jungers is- and always was- a good 'ol farm boy with a steadfast work ethic. And by the way, he happens to be a great songwriter.

Hill Country Sun

If Americana, the term they use these days for what we used to call folk music, ever suitedthe music it describes, it's in Black Limousine, the new release from Mark Jungers. I guess the term I want to use is "authentic," but it's so overused that it sounds phony. Go figure. But this music is real all the way to its American bones. Fine songs speak to our legends and our pain. The American dream comes home to roost. The songs run straight and true to the heart of rural America. Its fine songwriting that never falters. Mark tells his stories in a delivery totally without pretense and you just have to believe what he says.

Mike Ethan Messick

One of the best collections of original songs ever laid down on one record. And I don't mean just by an indie artist or just by a Texas artist or anything .... this stacks up just fine against Dylan, Kristofferson, Springsteen, you name it. Not that it sounds anything like those guys, this splits the difference between old-timey grit and modern warmth and polish as well as anything in recent memory. All of Jungers' albums are excellent but this one, in my opinion, is simultaneously the most diverse and consistent.
