ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
What the press has to say about Sonny Meadows:

"Mr. Meadows has an inventive sense of rhythm and melody that runs the sonic gamut from Kurt Weil to Southern chain gangs, along with hooky choruses featuring female vocalists that seep deep into the psyche..." Robbie Woliver - New York Times

"Meadows is rightly famous in our area for his wry political and social commentary...he can skewer the absurd and pretentious, but also has a gentle and generous side."
Amy Tuttle - Folk Music Society of Huntington

"Any stories of injustice are fodder for Meadows' poetry put to music. Meadows is a voice for the oppressed, the victims of political irony you hear about everyday on the news...the homeless, the hardworking immigrants, ethnic minorities and the oblivious everyday Americans who are being oppressed and they don't even realize it!" - Liz Smith, The Nightguide

"A modern day troubadour." The Island Ear

"Meadows shines from song to song with an honest lyrical approach that blends humor, hard life tales, and human condition songs." Steven J. Francis - Long Island Entertainment

"His sense of humor and a clever, clever mind has provided him with both a wealth of great songs and a growing number of fans." Roy Abrams, Musicians' Exchange

"Long Island's most creatively topical songwriter." The Inside Connection

"Meadows has developed an underground cult status among musicians and plain folk alike." The Island Ear

"Through haunting lyrics and even more compelling vocalization, Meadows brought home forcefully the message and meaning of the evening." George Wallace, The Long Islander

"Muckraking Folksinger" Isaac Guzman - Newsday

"...an immensely talented auteur/performer." Long Island Voice

"If anyone can express our time musically it's Long Island, NY's Sonny Meadows." Liz Smith, The Nightguide

"One of L.I.'s most incredible songwriters." Michael Clarke, ISS Newsletter

rogueguy

far right winger says buy it!
I am a card carrying NRA lifer, and went from far left in college to far right. Nevertheless, I love good lyrics and good music. This music has it all, including the voice of a man that must have gargled with kerosene and then lit up.
Get this CD because it is insightful, get it because it will disturb your complacency, get it because Sonny Meadows proves Joe Hill never died.
