Synopsis

Album Description
The energy that John McCutcheon and band bring to this powerful collection of all-new songs is amazing. Marking several milestones (his 50th birthday, 30 years in music and his first CD on a new label), the songs deliver powerfully concise observations on where we?ve been, where we are and where we are going. Blending rock colorations with acoustic sensibilities, this project has a refreshing and cohesive integrity. TIM O?BRIEN and Australian KERRIANNE COX make guest appearances and John?s gift for weaving astute commentary with crisp song writing and instrumental expertise is manifest through out the CD.

CD Reviews

Folk Music is Alive and Well
David M. Sylte | Austin, MN United States | 01/17/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I just stumbled across John MCutcheon a few weeks ago, and now I wished I'd found his music years ago. This album is simply awesome with its music and its messages. Peace, justice, and tolerance issues are now important than ever and John's songs are just great for restoring some hope for the future. His music is in the tradition of Guthrie, Seeger, and Dylan. There are still a few of us around who like music that touches our souls and uplifts our spirits. I guarantee you'll love this album and be playing its songs over and over. I will see John in concert for the first time in a few weeks, and I can't wait."
NOT IN MY NAME
A. Stevens | Michigan | 08/18/2006

"I've been a McCutcheon fan since I was around 12 years old and my parents brought home a tape entitled "What It's Like." I fell in love with his voice, his talent, but most of all his powerful lyrics. This album is a perfect example of the lively, potent, and emotional touch of McCutcheon's music. However, of all the McCutcheon songs I know (and believe me, I know plenty) the anthem "Not in My Name" speaks to my heart like no other protest song ever has. In this war when all sides are convinced that a higher power is on their side, the lyric "I said it in the Bible, in the Torah and in the Koran/what part of 'love your neighbor' don't you people understand" says it all for me. Purchasing this or any John McCutcheon album will be the best decision you've ever made regarding your CD collection.
