Blue Summer Day

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Dave Nathan
In this two-CD set, singer D.C. Anderson has selected an eclectic program of songs that relate stories running the gamut of human emotions and events. The great majority of these tunes come from contemporary composers, representing a variety of genres. There's also a healthy representation of tunes written by Anderson. Modern folksinger/writer Cheryl Wheeler is also well represented, including the title tune, "Blue Summer Day," done in a manner by Anderson that recalls Burl Ives of all people. The songs run the full emotional gamut -- satire, love, remorse, disappointment, hope, reverie, and happy resolution. There's the tongue-in-check spoof of the Bible story about Noah ...

The great majority of these tunes come from contemporary composers, representing a variety of genres. There's also a healthy representation of tunes written by Anderson. Modern folksinger/writer Cheryl Wheeler is also well represented, including the title tune, "Blue Summer Day," done in a manner by Anderson that recalls Burl Ives of all people. The songs run the full emotional gamut -- satire, love, remorse, disappointment, hope, reverie, and happy resolution. There's the tongue-in-check spoof of the Bible story about Noah with his "You Should be Ashame-ed." Happy-sad memories of a former love are recalled with "I'm Stepping Out With a Memory." Sincerity is one of the more important devices in the folksinger's arsenal, and Anderson's success with delivering on this emotion is heard in such tunes as "Second Time Around." The singer delivers a comic testimonial to one of the leading mind-deadening drugs on today's market with the legitimate question "Is It Peace or Is It Prozac." The inherent inconsistencies of being Irish and gay are explored in "God Loves the Irish." He gets help with the lyrics along the way. Sister Claudia Anderson joins in a lilting rendition of Tom Russell's "Box of Visions." Most of the musical accompaniment comes from the piano of longtime collaborator Lem Jay Ignacio. Each of these songs tells a unique tale, which is a major force in making this session interesting. The other half of the foundation is the simply delightful voice of D.C. Anderson and the expressive way in which he uses it. An entertaining CD that is recommended.
