Overview

Grammy award-winning singer/songwriter Marc Cohn's career in the spotlight peaked early with the global smash "Walking to Memphis," a left-field shot of "adult Americana" that positioned the Cleveland native as the next Bruce Hornsby or Jackson Browne -- even Cher covered it. Cohn's subsequent releases never captured the populace fervor that surrounded "Memphis," but his meticulous songcraft, middle America imagery, and introspective Sunday afternoon vibe connected with enough people to sustain a successful career, resulting in this 18-track overview from Rhino. Standout cuts like "True Companion," "Silver Thunderbird," "Rest for the Weary," and the aforementioned "Memphis" dutifully articulate Cohn's penchant for Everyman heartbreak and blue-collar drama, and A-list guest stars like David Crosby, Martin Sexton, Rosanne Cash, and Patty Griffin provide key moments, but this is Cohn's show. He may be the audio equivalent of meat loaf and mashed potatoes, but there's a reason it's called comfort food.

Quality musicianship, thoughtful songwriting. This CD offers a peaceful, melodic backdrop to a weekend houseparty. You can put it in your mixer and hit scramble or repeat for several days of enjoyable listening. Highly recommended for music lovers of many genres.
