"Only One Moon" is a classy, spirited CD from Prairie Oyster
(5 out of 5 stars)
"Prairie Oyster's fourth album "Only One Moon" is a fantastic voyage: a classy, spirited traditional and contemporary country album filled with several gems. The album is subdivided between original and cover material, but the original material really stands out. Russell deCarle's exquisite, 50s-styled love ballad "Such a Lonely One" is an Oyster classic and was the band's first #1 hit in Canada (should have been in the US, too): twinkly piano, swirling pedal steel, and heartfelt vocals. "You feel as cold as an October snow/but outside your window the sun's beating down./Time doesn't stop/for your broken heart....the world keeps turning around.") Keith Glass contributes some of his finest tunes here with the romping Cajun stomp "Louisiette," the country-rock title track "Only One Moon," and the mandolin/pedal steel tour-de-force "Don't Cry Little Angel." Joan Besen, another great songwriter in the band, contributes the Jimmie Rodgers' tribute tune "Brand New Hard Time Blues" and the soft, moving ballad "Black Eyed Susan" - a tune that deals with physical abuse in relationships. Artists successfully covered by Oyster on this album include Pam Tillis, Alan Jackson, and Lucinda Williams - nice choices and fine results. Super album with top-notch musicianship."

"This, in my opinion, is Prairie Oyster's best album. Each and every song is a winner, and range from rock-a-billy to cajun, from up-tempo dance tracks to ballads. It's all here. Although this was they're 4th album, it was the one that was really their big break-through. A talented band of singers/songwriters/ musicians, this is a great album that should appeal to all lovers of traditional and contemporary country. 16 page booklet contains all lyrics and photos of the band. Recommended."
