Album Notes
A wicked disc of power pop from one of Nashville's monster guitar players. In our opinion, Pat is the best cross-stylist in this town of superlative guitar players. Country, pop, jazz, rock, blues--he is conversant and convincing in all these and more. So much so, in fact, that many do not realize what a fine singer and great songwriter he is. Not only that, but all these cuts were co-written by the man we believe to be the best songwriter in Nashville, Bill DeMain, known to many through his group Swan Dive (see our interview).

To stack the deck a little further, add Brad Jones as co-producer at the pop den called Alex the Great, playing killer bass and organ, along with a little Moog and Chamberlin. Nashville's fattest drummer (his sound, I mean) Greg Morrow, rocks so hard, even when he's just got a little side stick going on the snare, and his fills are classic. Jim Hoke, the ultimate swing man and secret studio weapon, appears with a handful of the sharp tools in his bag: flute, bass and chromatic harmonicas, clarinet, autoharp, and saxophone.

Pat is a veteran session player, to understate the matter. So the arrangements and the tracks are top shelf, he and B. Jones really know how to put a pop song together in funky, lush, inventive ways that appeal to people that have grown up with fantastic pop music. (I feel sorry for the kids of today, rap and techno, ouch.) There's an excellent palette of bright and pastel colors that make up almost all of this record, which makes it very valuable to me. It's not hard to find serious, morose, self-absorbed, everybody's doing that. It's damn hard to find a joyous record, and that's what this is. Even if the song subject is far from a joke, it still produces a joyful effect on this listener. My runaway favorite is "Smile on My Face," and I really dig on "The World is Flat."

I kinda liked this record at first. Then I started listening more, and now I love it. We hope some cool U.S. pop outfit like BarNone or YepRoc picks up on the fabulous record, it belongs on the shelves of a nation of boomers who are new-pop deprived. (Can no one figure out how to market this huge demographic?)

all music should be this good
I heard pat buchanan in a bar in Nashville, of all places, after a friend told me you have to come listen to this guy.
They were right I did need to listen to him!
All music should be this good.
Luckiest girl in the world (track2 )is one of the most perfect pop songs written since mrs Lennon /McCartney!
Best thing i've heard in years.

Josh Leo of the Vinyl Kings

This guy is not only a GREAT guitar player but also a GREAT singer and songwriter.( I think I hate him) Love all of these songs Pat! All of them...It's nice to hear real thought being put into the lyric as well as the music. The Vinyl Kings think Pat's so good...well he's kind of the 6th King!

Pat Buchanan has started a new generation of fans with this CD!
Pat Buchanan, guitarist, song writer, singer, is an amazing artist as well as a fine person. He is a fan of the great Jimmy Bryant, who would have loved Pat's work in all areas of his artistry. Pat has a new CD out any time and it should be as good if not better than this last one.
Keep on keeping on Pat!

Very deep and delicious. Wonderful sounding CD, I can't wait to listen again!
For me, it started with cut four - The World Is Flat. Brad Jones is such a good Producer it makes me wanna puke! With joy, that is. Pat Buchanan and I have worked together in the studio, and I've seen him live and THIS CD certainly does not show the entire story about him. But it doesn't have to - it's a great chapter. He's a better singer than this CD let's on, though. The songs are first rate, the chords are ultra-cool. It was a joy to listen to and I will immediately implant it in iTune land.
