A Review from Bruce Allen

A Review from Bruce Allen:)))) A few weeks ago I sent my new CD, “A Feather and a Scale” to a few people for feedback…I have received only positive and very kind words in response from those who have listened. Of course it’s not easy as an unsigned artist to get people to listen, (or review) for so many reasons…but once they do they, so far, have been really awesome with their responses, and I will be sharing some of those responses over the next months. But for now, I’d like to start at the very top of my list, a review I’ll be smiling about for years, even better than the last one he blessed me with for “The View From Here”!! Some kind words from the giant, hold no truths back, biggest music fan ever, Mr. Bruce Allen!!!:))) Here goes:
“This is a really enjoyable listen. “In Good Time” pulled me in right from the start. The last 3 songs, from “Same Old Song”, thru “Winter Came In” and ending with “Where Does The Time Go” were truly captivating. I must have played those last 3 songs at least 10 times over the weekend. They are a wonderful listen.
Your voice throughout is at times haunting…sometimes very seductive, and always perfectly slotted into the mix. The horns, though muted most of the time, really add to the tracks. This is a really enjoyable listen. Probably a bit of a throwback, but so what. It reminds me of one of my favorite cd’s by Shawn Phillips. It was called Second Contribution and was released in 1970. It had a plethora of colours and I remember playing the track “Song For Sagittarians” over and over again.
When I heard your stuff, it transported me back to a period when music was smart and ever evolving. I went upstairs and got my aforementioned CD and played it right after yours. That was a lovely hour of music.
Good work. Congratulations.
