An Interesting Mix...

"...of songs in a strong vein. Ketchum's voice is quite good but not extraordinary; what makes this album most worthwhile is the strong songwriting the artist serves up. It's interesting to go through from "Mama Knows the Highway," about a truck-driving mama (literal mother or pet name?) to "Daddy's Oldsmobile" in which he lauds his father's beloved car (which also doubles as the family home) to "Someplace Far Away," about a family where the father takes it into his head to go out west and pan for gold. The instrumentation is inventive and sturdy, and as I say the artist's singing is better than average, but the real treat here is Ketchum's inventive songwriting skill. Not for fans of twangy country -- Ketchum isn't a hat act, he's for purists and artists. If you like country the way it used to be, then enjoy!"

"This is a terrific follow-up to the Gold CD, PAST THE POINT OF RESCUE, featuring three top ten singles, "Sure Love," "Mama Knows The Highway," and "Hearts Are Gonna Roll," and the top fifteen hit, "Someplace Far Away" (originally recorded by Ketchum in 1986 on his Watermelon album THREADBARE ALIBIS). "You Lovin' Me" featuring Trisha Yearwood on harmony vocals is by far the best song on the CD. The haunting "Trail Of Tears" tells of the plight of Native Americans in the great Northwest and the sadness their people feel today. "Til The Coast Is Clear" and "Softer Than A WHisper" are also worth mentioning; the former a moderate Texas swing and the latter a gentle ballad. Order it now while it's still available."
