"This mans music takes me home. Espesially the piece "Idaho Rain".
Reminds us all off the sweet heart who left, while we stayed safe at home. I wish this man had other music avaliable."
Golden Apples Of the Sun...

"The ten cuts on this CD are all good. Robert James Waller, author of the book BRIDGES OF MADISON COUNTY sings these songs with verve and feeling. He had performed in road houses, like Rodney Crowell, and has a way with the ballad. His renditions of 'Wabash Cannonball,' 'Tangerine,' and 'Idaho Rain' were fantastic.
However, his narration of 'Golden Apples of the Sun' taken from Yeats poem, "The Song of Wandering Aengus" was the best on this collection. It can't be beat by anyone, even Orson Welles. I wanted to share it with Chuck Southcott on his birthday last month, but he didn't want it. Too Bad. He doesn't know what he missed. 'The Dutchman' and 'Girl From the North Country' are enigmatic and well-done.
Waller is an all round good artist in music and writing. He has a new novel out and I can't wait to read it."
