CD Reviews

Mathes is the Mozart of the Millenium
01/06/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"As a part time musician. I am always looking to hear extraordinary talent. There doesn't seem to be enough around. But Rob Mathes' music is truly extraordinary. The 1st time I heard Rob Mathes (and his Boy Elroy) in the early 90's at a club in Westchester, I was drawn in to the sound. I clearly remember being transfixed by his singing, guitar playing and the bands playing. Someone in the crowd said that I was listening to Chuck Mangione's back up band. I had to listen to more Rob Mathes but the only way I knew how was go out and buy Mangione's Eyes Of A Veiled Temptress. I listened to that CD, allot. Even on that album, you could hear Rob's harmonious influence, both on guitar and vocals. I also saw "Elroy" at the Bitter End in Manhattan several years ago. Having played there myself, the sound equipment is not top notch and it didnt do the band justice.Since then I have had difficulty finding Rob's music. I have looked. A friend said that he heard Rob was producing. And then flipping channels the other night, PBS had a musician that was playing this song William the Angel. I was transfixed. Something looked and sounded familiar? Perhaps it was Will Lee in the background? no. Then they flashed to info that this was a Rob Mathes video. Oh baby!!!! I couldn't believe it. There he was playing new great music, again. Well alright!! . And then all these guest artists started coming out: David Sanborne, Michael McDonald, etc. Great show. So thank you Rob, keep on playing ....+ PLS make more CDs!!!. Also Are here any tapes/CDs from Rob Mathes and His Boy Elroy? Happy Holidays"

"Simply the best Christmas album I have ever heard! Creative and fresh and a great lineup of vocalists and instrumentalists. Plus it's all live!"
"William the Angel" will bring tears to your eyes.

"I saw the Rob Mathes Christmas special on TV and heard his works for the first time. He is a very gifted artist. "William the Angel" is such a special song. It's really hard to fight back the tears during this song. I highly recommend adding this CD to your Christmas music library."
