With Straw House, Everyone's In the Band...
Paul Schlueter | Des Moines, USA | 01/13/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)
"Straw House combines the essence of a socially concious soul with outstanding musicianship and entertainment. Mayer's work on this album confronts the very nature of humanity - from varied (and sometimes difficult to swallow) points of view - while remaining true to its entertaining nature. Everyone should be so fortunate as to spend just one minute with the humanity at Molly O'Malley's, where "the player's fee is a pint or three and EVERYONE'S in the band." An album to play on your own Route 66 with the top way down."
Rosa Parks song stands up well in U.S. history class

"I use the Rosa Parks song as the theme song for the Civil Rights Unit that I teach (11th grade U.S. history). After listening to this song, I ask my students..."Did the Civil Rights Movement kill Goliath?" At the end of the unit, they answer that question in essay form.
Kind of a funky review, I know, for a CD, but hey...maybe some other history teacher could use it!
P.S....I do like Peter's other songs & music in general."
