ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Top 12 Independent Recordings- Performing Songwriter March/April 1994

"Face it Doug, you're a songwriter." Neil Fagan- THE LEAK

"Wintch's voice, while a bit on the rough side, is consistently interesting..."
Martin Renzhofer-THE SALT LAKE TRIBUNE

"a consistently enjoyable songwriter..."
Jerry Spangler-THE DESERET NEWS

"I never dreamed you'd take the roses/one might say you spoiled the plot/I never dreamed you'd take the roses/you've such a way with forget me nots." That's the chorus from "The Roses", the lead-off track to this superb CD. As clever and catchy as it is, it' only one of the many gems Wintch offers.

Plain spoken and genuinely affable, Wintch might remind some of John Prine or Guy Clark. Vocally he's reminiscent of James McMurtry, but with more range.

Some might call this country, with the string bass, banjo, fiddle and acoustic slide intertwining, but then there's surprises like the soprano sax easing through "Dizzy Darlene". Darlene is a "walkin', talkin', dirty joke that the hometown cowboys tell." Wintch describes, dissects, and defends her with a surgeon's skill.

Whether he's confessing his shortcomings in "You Never Had To Guess", or harping on his merits ("I paddled your canoe, I taught you mouth to mouth") in "Boy Scout Blues" Wintch makes his point with equal parts wit and wisdom. Despite what you've been told, this is one case where (here it comes) it's good to take Wooden Nickels.

Tillie Parks

Great country/folk/blues! The songs stick with you.
Fabulous debut for this seasoned Utah troubadour. Clean and polished, these songs have enough twists to keep you guessing and going back for more. Favorites include "You Never Had to Guess", "Maybe Love", "Dizzy Darlene" and Salt Lake's only folk/rock anthem "Salt Lake City".
Definitely a keeper!

Smart, Funny, and Replete with Twang
Smart, funny, and replete with twang, this album ages well, greater than great, transcendent. It is a masterpiece of a forgotten songwriting style of folk and country, a smarter bastard son that Jerry Jeff Walker would be proud to call his own.

Excellent CD, just my kind of music. Understandable & meaningful
I was pleased with the service and the quality of the CD I received. Liked it very much, and will likely search for others of the same kind. In fact tried to find "A wing and a Prayer", think it's by Whitman, not sure. But would certainly buy it if you had it.
