Buy This Album
Full disclosure: I'm a friend of Stuffy Shmitt. He's a musician's musician, and just about everyone in the industry knows and admires him. This collection contains lots of his greatest work, and if you buy it, I guarantee that you'll be coming right back to CD Baby to buy more of his albums. Stuffy's music is intelligent, fun, creative, complex, simple, and absolutely cutting edge stuff. Trust me on this or I might have to come over there and sort you out. Know what I mean?

Wicked Honest Talent
Knowing Stuffy's last 5 CD's well, I'd imagine culling only 12 cuts from his recorded works must have been challenging. Though "Twelve Songs" is a delicious smattering of classic Stuff, I kind of miss the other 54 songs! (And so will you unless you buy his other CDs!) Stuffy is musical gem. His musicality is honest, not contrived, and his guitar prowess, well, frankly pisses me off! His lyrics can be gripping, melancholic, or hysterical, but never trendy or goofy. As evidenced by his stab at a superficial culture in his country romp, "Dumb It Down". Really, though this guy's sirened some of the greatest in the industry to support his CD's, almost any one of his originals could stand on it's own two feet with just Stuffy, and his guitar (like my personal favorite on "12", "When The World Doesn't Love You"...for the full band version, check out his album "Industrial Love"). The test of genius. In this day and age of "cover-mainia", he wades into his troubadour life, assembling picture songs from his personal battles, triumphs, and defeats. As when he emerges, thank God, on the other side of "Nothing Is Real". No you won't find many covers in Stuffy's library. Hmmm...kind of reminds me of Dylan, or Knopfler. But sorry Bob, Stuffy can really play the guitar! As a fellow musician, I find myself needing to listen to a whole Stuffy album, uninterrupted, cut by cut, while wondering on the events which inspired the tune, and wishing I were a fly on the wall during the recording sessions. He's a wonderful arranger, and powerful producer. Like "Heart Above Water", stripped, tight, infectious (check out the vid!). Though a gifted balladeer ("Just Between Us Lovers"), blues-rocker ("Somebody Else's Money"), and hit maker ("Who Cares If There's A Moon"), Stuffy refuses to be defined musically. He cuts through all musical genres. Another test of genius. He doesn't bother with words, as he paints his lyrics with pictures. Much of today's music is crap. That's why I find Stuffy refreshing. He's got wicked, honest, talent. Thanks Stuff, and keep sharing your gift with us!
