Original Songwriter Demos, Vol. 1

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Thom Jurek
This set features ten solid Americana and contemporary country songs, most of which were real hits, performed informally here by those who composed them. Some of the highlights are Tony Arata's "The Dance," Matraca Berg's and Gary Harrison's "Strawberry Wine," the narcotically slow and dignified, "I Hope You Dance," and Jeff Hanna and friends' "Bless the Broken Road."

Rather than the jingoistic misinterpretation Sean Hannity insists upon when he uses it on his radio program, Peters' meaning cannot be misunderstood. Through the eyes and experience of its protagonist, this song measures the myths and truths about freedom with a raw, devastating, emotional punch that is beyond the grasp of a national holiday to embrace. Consequently, for its deep revelation that is free from affect, it ranks over McBride's reading. Fans and students of American songwriting will find much to value in this neat collection.
