CD Reviews

Thoroughly engaging live album!

"When I first heard HUMBLE YOURSELF AS A CHILD, I was surprised at who I thought was James Taylor, singing a song on Christian radio. A call to the radio station corrected me and thus was my pleasant introduction to Jim Cole.Jim Cole is a talented singer/songwriter whose gift shines in the studio as well, if not even more so, live on the stage. I think a true measure of an artist's gift is if they can stand on a bare stage with only a guitar and beautifully communicate their message and music without the benefits of studio "magic". Jim Cole passes such a test with flying colors.This album is well paced with heartflet songs which range musically from soft and mellow, (HE IS THE ONE, LIGHT OF THE WORLD, MASTER OF MY HEART/JUST TO KNOW THE LAMB, SIMPLE SONG) to upbeat,(HUMBLE YOURSELF AS A CHILD, WAYWARD SON) to light and humorous. (RAILROAD BILL, OFFERING SONG, LAUNDRY BLUES)There really isn't a disappointing song on the entire album which is rare on a live recording no matter what genre you might be considering. In fact, I like most of these recordings better than the studio versions. While comparisons with James Taylor are inevitable, Jim Cole has proven here that he is a gifted singer/songwriter in his own right."
Standing Ovation for Jim Cole

"Until I heard this CD, I had never heard of Jim Cole (forgive me). One listen, and I was hooked. Cole is an incredibly gifted singer/songwriter whose performance both vocally and on the guitar left me amazed that he is not a household name.Yes, he sounds a lot like James Taylor (a fact that he even pokes fun at), but don't let this fool you. Cole is not a derivative Taylor clone -- his music is both original and deeply personal, and displays dimensions I have never heard in James Taylor's work.Alternating between solemn songs full of deep truth to light-hearted, humerous numbers, Cole knows just how to keep his audience thoroughly engaged. Just when things are on the brink of getting too serious, he jolts them with a good dose of humor. "Railroad Bill", in particular, is one of the most cleverly humerous songs I have ever heard.If you like the sound of singer/songwriters such as James Taylor and Carole King, buy this CD. It will quickly become one of your favorites!"
Entertaining, thoughtful...and funny!

"I came across this recording through a friend, and immediately got my own copy! Cole's music is wonderful, and his sense of humor shows that Christians can be fun, too. Thanks for the great music!"
