I ordered 2 CDs as gifts . I already have 4 P. Wictor CDs of my own because he is so special and I play him so much that other folks are asking "who is that? How great is he!!??" So I gave one to my Mom. She is 87 years old and thinks he is wonderful. And My sister-in-law heard him when she was here and became a fan (Just like me) So I ordered one for her. So I continue to recruit more Pat fans. He is a true poet, writer, singer, and musician. I never get tired of Pats music.

Awesome collection of music. Pat Wictor is one of a handful of artist who’s performances make you pay attention. While playing a Pat Wictor CD or attending a live performance there is no chatter in the room where the music becomes background it becomes the center focus of awareness of all gathered. On CHANGES a Phil Ochs song Pat takes these lyrics written in the 1960’s and with vocal inflection and tone turns them into a relevant 21st century tune. Then 2 tracks later Pat takes the words of Minna Irving a American poet born in 1872 on MARCHING ON a civil war ballad and makes you feel as it he is singing of modern day conflicts . The most powerful song on the CD is WHISKEY VACATION a story of a loving man that may indulge from time to time in one to many adult beverages but never to the point of affecting job or family it offers some pretty profound imagery. One that years of Country music drinking songs have for whatever reason have overlooked Shame on them. That’s OK though Pat will look pretty cool accepting a CMA for songwriting. Another indicator of Pat’s talent can simply be found by picking up any number of prominent folk / singer-songwriters CD’s chances are if you search the liner notes you will find Pat Wictor . If that many in the business seek him out there must be a reason. Get this CD you will not be disappointed

Pat's music is eloquent,multihumanistic ,sexy and at times gut wrenching , his lyrics also joyful,rich ,subtle and earthy in an etherial ,traditional and progressive pagan earth and sky sort of way.
"Marching Still "revived words by a mom named Minna about the Civil War and make it clear nothing has changed for mom's loosing children to war....
Although I prefer Pat's lyrical style progressively through his Cds ."Marching Still "gave me chills and stands as a very powerful instant classic antiwar tune.
That's The Way It's Gonna Be "is sort of a Buddhist
"so as you think you shall become "blues song that inspires on a cloudy day.
Existential Blues" being a latter day "Instant Karma "and struck one mom I know struggling to stay sane through her fifteen year old daughter's mood swings and youthful caprice.She played it at breakfast.
I wish I had someone to sing "Eventide "to , sea lover romance song ,yes abundantly charmed this sailor.
Whiskey Vacation is a cultural American truth that makes my heart ache for all those kids grown or growing up in the shadow of alcohol.
Where Did you Go ? bridges the veil between the worlds in gorgogeous lines like "dreams for an angel dreams full of beautiful light."Comforting for those struggling with loss and grief.
I never realized Phil wrote "Changes!"Nice touch.
This is a an excellent body of work !
