"John Waite continues to be one of the BEST singer/songwriters that NOBODY knows! He has once again given us insight into his most private feelings. He shines throughout the album and proves ,once again, that he will continue to produce high quality albums to a loyal legion of fans. Keep rock'n JW!!"
WYWM is a John Waite fan's delight!

"This 1997 release from the incredibly talented singer/songwriter John Waite combines a surprising mix of the true blue romantic of John's past songs with a more mature socially aware musician who has travelled extensively through America. The musical style on this CD differs from his previous CD's (excluding Temple Bar) in that it is more guitar than keyboard. Shane Fontayne, known best from his days with Springsteen, is a great compliment to John's singing. This album offers a hot blues number "Show Me How to Love You" as well as a Dylan remake, "Just Like a Woman". John Waite is superb in his command of lyrics and knowing just how to accentuate all the rights words. He wrote the album after travelling extensively throughout the United States, hence the songs "Bluebird Cafe" about a waitress who's gonna be a star one day, and "I-95", a fast paced tune about starting over and how great it is to be alive! Of course, his love songs are awesome as usual! "When You Were Mine", the title track, is a trip down memory lane with your old flame, and what a fun trip it is!! I don't know why this song wasn't played all over the radio!!"

"I've been a fan for years - we're talkin back to when "Isn't It Time" first came out. Yet, I didn't buy this when it first came out.I think it was because "Temple Bar" left a bad (or at least disappointing) taste in my mouth. While I loved "Downtown", the rest just seemed so uninspired to me.Now I picked up a used version of "When You Were Mine" (sorry John, but hey I've padded your pockets with a lot of $$ over the years from other CDs!). I'm so glad I got this and am kickin myself for not getting it sooner.I actually heard one tune before (Imaginary Girl always plays in my supermarket every month or so...very odd). The rest is equally amazing esp "Show Me How to Love You". Don't wait. If you're a fan, get it. This is an extremely good CD."
