CD Reviews

Excited about the Psycho Desperado

"The title cut of the "Endless Sky" CD is our first experience with Chuck Pyle's music from an NPR program. We were immediately and completely mesmerized by the melody, the lyrics, and his artistry on the accoustical guitar. It was music that all at one time was "new and exciting" and "remarkably comfortable". We purchased "Endless Sky" and two other CD releases immediately from [an on-line retailer] and enjoy them as endlessly as the Western skies and and forever thoughts his music evokes when listening. "Your Life In Love With Mine" will etch into your heart forever, "Akasha Wind" will play in your dreams, "Keepers of the Earth" will give honest responsibility to your faith, and "Rio Rey" will let you feel like you are sitting with great friends and filled with joy when you are just driving home from work! We ordered "Affected By The Moon" tonight, and have been enjoying, the music of "Endless Sky" for a few months, and hope you also will be able to enjoy "Keepin' Time By the River", and "Camel Rock". Our hopes are to see him perform live.. and our greater hopes are that others will be fortunate to enjoy his voice, his music, and his unique and compelling, exciting and satisfying style. For those who know him, his music will always free their souls and release their stresses. For those of you who will be a first time listeners, you will finally find an artist who gives you that personal touch that rarely is found with the super nova packaged artisans that are promoted but only deliver glitz, nothing more. Chuck Pyle is pure joyful music and you will find that it is YOU who will shine with listening enjoyment and a satisfying comfort that holds you like all of nature. We recommend "Endless Sky" as a wonderful first or continuing collection of Chuck Pyle!"

"Chuck Pyle is an absolute treasure in American music. His carefully crafted, intelligent songs get into your mind as well as into your toe (just try not to tap your foot to some of these), and they leave a gentle mark. Working loosely in the genre of acoustic western swing, Pyle shows through his writing that he has respect for many styles of music, and he's not at all shy about letting them show. Folk, country, jazz, blues, swing -- all of these forces are at work here, and to wonderful advantage. Chuck Pyle is a true original -- he sounds like no one else. He's not some delusional would-be cowboy trying to channel Bob Wills or Gene Autry -- he's his own man, and he's as honest about the things that move him as any writer working today.Every disc I've heard by Chuck has been full of great songs, chosen and recorded well -- this one has to be my favorite. There's not a single wasted track here -- every one of these songs paints a memorable picture of a feeling or person or place that Pyle has seen or experienced, and we come away from this cd with the feeling that we've experienced them as well.'Rio Rey' begins the set with a look at the light and colors of a beautiful place in New Mexico that is favored by artists for those attributes -- 'Endless sky' is one of Chuck's many love songs to the Western landscape. The mood changes dramatically and effectively with 'Gypsy minor', filled with musical echoes of the soul of Romany. 'Everyday now' is one of the most beautiful love songs you'll hear anywhere. Showing his respect for the good work of other fine writers, Pyle turns in a really nice job on L. J. Booth's wonderful song 'Akasha wind'. 'The winter of our affair' is a touching look back at a treasured memory, done in the style of a classic jazz ballad. Chuck's 'metronome thumb' (you'll understand this reference if you're ever fortunate enough to see him perform live) kicks back in with 'Moonglow rising', another paean to the gorgeous land- and sky-scapes of the American West. On 'Keepers of the earth', Chuch delivers a heart-felt anthem for the environment and our responsibilities to it -- without sounding 'preachy' even for a moment.There are several discs available by this fine performing singer-songwriter -- if you've never heard him, start here and work your way through them. None of them will let you down. Pyle's style is a finely crafted one -- this is Western music, without a doubt, but without any of the maudlin attributes of Nashville country music. Chuck Pyle sings from the heart as well as the mind and spirit, and his music can touch us in all of those places. That's a rare thing."
Smooth, slow and soft

"Chuck Pyle has one of the most relaxing, soothing sounds going today. His acoustic guitar playing is excellent and his voice is smooth and steady. My favorites in this album are "Sailing" and "Gypsy Minor". This is the type of album I like to listen to at work to block out the noise of the world and remind me that there is more to life than work. I highly recommend this album to everyone who enjoys good acoustic guitar music with a slow deliberate pace and ballads that speak to the ordinary life."
