Album Notes
Suppose Buddy Holly had survived that plane crash and now, in middle age, was still singing his hiccupy, syncopated rock songs in a much lower voice with a strong taste for steel-guitar accompaniment.

That's what the music on Jim Wurster's "Goodbye Paradise" (Black Janet Music) is like, and I can't think of anyone else who has quite the same sound today. Both in melody ands lyrics, his tunes are simple and uncomplicated. As a result they are accessible. Yet, they have the same haunting quality as Holly's work did. There's something about the terseness that indicates he's hiding as much as he is revealing.

Wurster's combo provides sterling rhythm-guitar work to keep these songs bouncing. - Steven Rosen, Denver Post

Smooth and cruisey Jim Wurster
Happened to pick this CD purely by happenchance. What a find. This is a delightful album full of smooth lyrics and great guitar. Not sure who he reminds me of but I love this album. Very talented musician. Will be looking for more from this artist.

Taking Holly Up to date
It´s typical to ask about thoose legends that died young, Hendrix, Holly and all the others: what would they be playing if they lived today? Of Course it is impossible to answer, but we can't help asking. Well - this smashing album from Jim Wurster, might be one of the possibilities of what Buddy Holly would do if he still had been among us. "Goodbye Paradise" got the same aproach to making sweet melodies and a strong beat work together. The same meeting between innocence and roughness. But in a more modern way, sounding like today. But yet not so modern that it would scare devoted fans of 50's music away. It's relaxing dovn to earth music, but with energy and destination.
