Artist: McMurtry, James
Description:
Personnel: James McMurtry (vocals, guitar, fiddle, harmonica); Randy Garibay, Jr. (vocals); Lloyd Maines (guitar, dobro, mandolin); Charlie Sexton (guitar); George Morgan (pennywhistle); Jon Blondell (trombone); Lisa Mednick (keyboards); Fred Remmert (synthesizer, shaker); Daren Hess (drums, tambourine); Paul Pearcy, Chris Searles (drums, percussion); Charles Searles (drums). Audio Mixer: Fred Remmert. Recording information: Cedar Creek Recording Studios, Austin, TX; Flashpoint Studios, Austin, TX. Photographer: Wyatt McSpadden. Singer/songwriter James McMurtry, son of novelist Larry McMurtry (Lonesome Dove), seems to have inherited his father's knack for weaving a story with memorable characters, the aural equivalent of a page-tuner. McMurtry's tales of lovers, losers, wanderers and rebels trying to make their way through America's heartland are as rich with detail as anything by Faulkner or Capote. "Soda and Salt" is a darkly amusing tale of a rebel-without-a-cause--at the grade school level. The snaking, sardonic mid-tempo rocker "Racing to the Red Light" is a slice-of-life about a guy desperate to escape Nowheresville, USA, where most others seem content--or have just given up. Stylistically and vocally, McMurtry recalls Loudon Wainwright III (earthy but with a dry, wry wit), Lou Reed (if Reed had grown up in the Midwest) and John Mellencamp (catchy rock and roll with a keen awareness of the American working class and an affinity for folk and country). His tunes have subtle melodies and touches (like the Irish folk-tinge in "Every Little Bit Counts")--they don't hit you over the head, but instead get under your skin, like you're getting to know the people he's singing about. McMurtry's songs stay with you long after the player reads "0:00."
