Save The Day finds Kate Campbell once again mining the veins of her folk, country, bluegrass, gospel, pop and blues roots. As with her previous releases, Kate's abiding fascination with storytelling, race, religion and history continue to fuel her creative pursuits. This collection of smart, reflective and sometimes quirky songs makes for a quintessential Kate Campbell album--something that Kate's ever-increasing base of loyal fans have come to expect from her. Inspiration for the twelve new and original songs spring from literary notables such as Harper Lee, Langston Hughes, Thomas Merton and Joan Didion. Kate's favorite musical collaborator, Walt Aldridge, produced the CD. Whether it's someone who discovers Kate for the first time or a longtime fan, the listener will soon realize that each of Kate's tunes touches something transcendent in the human spirit.

"The songs are absolutely wonderful on this C.D. I have almost all of Kate's work, and in my opinion, this is the best. Lovely lyrics. Kate is a great story teller through her songs. I highly recommend this one."
Not my favorite, but very good!

"I have been a Kate Campbell fan since she came on the scene. All I had to hear was Guy Clark saying that she was the "real deal". I have been a fan for over ten years, which has developed into a friendship as well. This coming April, Kate will sing in my living room for about 35 people as part of our house concert series.
"Save The Day" has more religious overtones within the lyrics than I am comfortable with, although I begrudge no one about it, especially Kate. She writes about what she knows, including her Southern Baptist upbringing, and she is absolutely true to her craft. I realize that a song like "Crazy In Alabama" can't be written every day by an artist, but there is a universal thread running through that and a number of her songs that I didn't pick up here. It's a good album, and maybe it'll grow on me with repeated listenings, but I'm much more likely to put on her "Blues And Lamentations" disc of several years ago when I want to hear her than this one. If you're new to Kate's music, I wouldn't recommend you start here, but with some other earlier releases, especially the two albums where she re-recorded some of her older work. If you're already a part of her fan club and are familiar with her work, I think you'll enjoy this disc, but maybe not as much as some other things."
