ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Tris McCall of "The Star-Ledger" writes, "Love Songs, Now and Then" "... provides a sonic compliment to Roger's witty ('Sing Out!' magazine) essays," noting, "His storytelling is poised and relaxed, and his dextrous guitar runs like a steady electric current through the songs." McCall terms Deitz's musical style "personal," commenting, "He's developed two unmistakable sonic signatures: his broad, warm baritone and his deft guitar playing, which often sounds like several guitarists playing at once." Tris McCall adds Roger Deitz writes with confidence, observing that almost all of "Love Songs, Now and Then" was cut in one take. McCall also points out that Roger's work earned him the respect of many best-known Americana artists, including Willie Nelson, Tom Paxton and Pete Seeger. Douglas M. Orr, founder of The Swannanoa Gathering, remarks, "The CD is superb with well-crafted songs and such tasteful accompaniment." Tom Paxton ever so lovingly affirms, "I love Roger Deitz and I love these songs. You will love them, too." Also feeling the love - there are virtuoso contributions from ace musicians Barry Mitterhoff (mandolin), Kenny Kosek (fiddle), Jane Gillman (harmonica), and Vic Collucci (bass), with additional vocals from Janice Kollar. Songwriter Billy Edd Wheeler reports, "Roger baby, my wife and I found the CD delightful. On the first track we burst out laughing for joy. Just loving the album. Your reader-listeners will LOVE it too. The CD is a thing of beauty, Congrats! And, the artwork on your album is absolutely beautiful. Graphic designer Ed Courrier has GREAT talent ... and you have great taste. I admire your zeal and know-how and of course - your talent." Randy Poe, President of Leiber/Stoller Songs and author of "Skydog: The Duane Allman Story" reflects, "I always felt that the best way to capture the music of Roger Deitz would be to turn on the machine and just let him sing and play until the tape runs out. Most of 'Love Songs, Now and Then' was recorded just that way - featuring Roger's rich baritone vocals and his totally original flat-picking style. This album is like having Roger performing a house concert for you - without having to feed him or clean up the place after he's gone."

Love Songs, Now and Then
If you’re a fan of the folk genre, then you’ll enjoy this album. Love Songs, Now and Then, by Roger Deitz, is a listen that’s happy, soulful, and just plain fun from start to finish.
Long a staple of the Philadelphia Folk Festival, Fast Folk, and the club circuit in the NY/NJ/PA area, this is Deitz’s first album and it rings true to the spirit of Paxton, Seeger, Guthrie, and, well… Billie Holliday, with fanciful guitar work and great vocals..
Love Songs, Now and Then, will be a treasure to those who are lucky enough to discover the wonderful world of Roger Deitz.

Heartfelt, Honest and Wonderful!
When I first listened to this collection of tunes, I was immediately impressed with Roger's ability to present heartfelt and honest portrayals of the human condition and the varied perspectives of love. The lyrics are sincere and genuine and the vocal delivery is passionate, yet relaxed and comforting. I have been familiar with Roger Dietz through live performance and was not surprised that he could compile and deliver such a collection of gems as these! This is a CD that belongs in every personal music collection because it reaches out to all of us in some way or another!
