Synopsis

Amazon.com
Michael Hurley is all about perspective. One moment he searches for life's deepest meanings; the next he sings the praises of dinner. He leaves it to the listener to decide which is more important. Hurley couches his odd lyrical mix of the metaphysical and the mundane in the simplest of song forms--gentle melodies abetted by the soft strains of fiddle, mandolin, banjo, and steel guitar. The music borrows from blues, country, swing, and ragtime, and Hurley presents them delicately but passionately and with haphazard perfection on this 1980 recording. --Marc Greilsamer

CD Reviews

Funny and strange, pure Snock
Eileen Gunn | Seattle | 07/29/1998
(5 out of 5 stars)

"A little lighter, a little sweeter than "Long Journey," which was also recorded in the mid-70s. A cheerful Snock/Hurley tells tales from a universe that's funnier than ours and has more going on in it. Buy it: you won't regret it. Heck. Get 'em all. Life is short. Heck."
Off Kilter Folk Rock
R. Fure | District of Columbia | 04/11/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Now don't let the term 'folk rock' throw you away from this. Michael Hurley is awesome, but he's songs do tend to range from cool guy smooth (Midnight Rounder) to funny and weird (Pork Chop). But if you've heard any of his stuff (which has been featured in Deadwood) then you'll love this. I enjoy it a lot and am completely satisfied. It's a good listen."
ONE OF MY ALL TIME FAVORITES!!!

"JUST BUY THIS -- AFTER YOU HEAR IT, YOU'LL WANT MORE!! IF YOU DON'T FALL STRAIGHT IN LOVE WITH THIS RECORD, YOUR NOT LISTENING!!!"
