The Notorious Cherry Bombs

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - David McGee
Like a country cousin to the mighty Blind Faith which corralled the powers of Eric Clapton, Steve Winwood, and Ginger Baker, the Notorious Cherry Bombs boast an all-star cast. The group originally formed as the Cherry Bombs in the '70s from the remnants of Emmylou Harris's formidable Hot Band, with Vince Gill, Rodney Crowell, and legendary producer/piano player/label exec Tony Brown at the core. The bandmates went their separate ways but have now regrouped as the Notorious Cherry Bombs, with a host of Nashville session stars behind them, and offer up a worth-the-wait debut that's a prime contender for album of the year. This is a great work, true and soulful and deeply ...

Like a country cousin to the mighty Blind Faith which corralled the powers of Eric Clapton, Steve Winwood, and Ginger Baker, the Notorious Cherry Bombs boast an all-star cast. The group originally formed as the Cherry Bombs in the '70s from the remnants of Emmylou Harris's formidable Hot Band, with Vince Gill, Rodney Crowell, and legendary producer/piano player/label exec Tony Brown at the core. The bandmates went their separate ways but have now regrouped as the Notorious Cherry Bombs, with a host of Nashville session stars behind them, and offer up a worth-the-wait debut that's a prime contender for album of the year. This is a great work, true and soulful and deeply country, nearly perfect in all its elements. Gill's husky voice has rarely been more winsome than on his self-penned honky-tonk heartbreaker, "Forever Someday"; more affecting than on his R&B-tinged shuffle, "Oklahoma Dust"; or more dramatic than on his swirling, ominous murder ballad, "Heart of a Jealous Man." Rodney Crowell contributes three exquisite songs, one of which, "Making Memories of Us," is not just a beautiful and tear-inducing love song but also a supremely moving lyric of devotion and faith that works on spiritual levels most writers can only dream of reaching. And just to keep things balanced, Crowell and Gill co-wrote the instant honky-tonk classic, "It's Hard to Kiss the Lips at Night That Chew Your Ass Out All Day Long," the title of which underscores how vital truth is to this collaboration. Far from the fruits of a mere novelty act, these are songs folks'll be singing along with, and finding new meaning in, for years and years to come.
All Music Guide - Thom Jurek
The Notorious Cherry Bombs are the country music equivalent of a supergroup. Most of the members of this band -- Rodney Crowell, Vince Gill, Tony Brown, and Hank DeVito -- all met while playing together in Emmylou Harris' Hot Band. The original Cherry Bombs were Crowell's recording and touring band after he left Harris' group. Guitarist Richard Bennett stepped into the Cherry Bombs when Albert Lee left to tour with Eric Clapton. The late drummer Larrie London was also a member of that band, as was Emory Gordy. While London makes an appearance by the magic of tape, Gordy had no interest in the reunion. Also present on this set are Nashville session hotshots Eddie Bayers, John Hobbs, and Michael Rhodes. Jenny Gill, Vince's daughter, sings backup on one track as well. Sonically, the music is loose good-time country-rock, and the gorgeous harmonies between Gill and Crowell are a high point. The songs are mostly spread out between the pair; they co-wrote three, and each contributed a pair of solo tracks with a smattering of others carefully chosen for full relaxed effect. All the collaborations -- the rollicking opener, "Let It Roll, Let It Ride," which is a modern-day version of country boogie, the single "It's Hard to Kiss the Lips at Night That Chew Your Ass Out All Day Long," and the midtempo torch song "Dangerous Curves" -- are clear standouts, as is a studio version of Gill's live rockabilly standard "Oklahoma Dust." DeVito's classic "Sweet Little Lisa," immortalized by Dave Edmunds, is another watermark. Given the inclusion of this track and DeVito's link to Edmunds, the Notorious Cherry Bombs have a metaphorical relationship as the country music cousin of Rockpile, the Edmunds and Nick Lowe-fronted multi-talented group that issued the classic Seconds of Pleasure in the early '80s -- while the original Cherry Bombs were performing and recording together here and in England. As reunions go, this is as solid and wonderfully played a set of tunes -- with a boatload of guitar players -- as one could assemble. There's "destiny" inscribed in all these grooves. If listeners connect, this seeming one-off may turn into something else. Let's hope they do.

    This is da BOMB! Excellent CD...

    How can you go wrong on a CD that features Vince Gill, Tony Brown and Rodney Crowell? You can't. Mark my words as this CD will be in all the Top 5 lists for this year. My favorite song is, Let It Ride, Let It Roll, a rollicking uptempo honkey tonk tune that Vince and Rodney take turns vocally calling out to the older set to loosen up before you're too old to do so. The hilarious stone cold country of ,It's Hard To Kiss The Lips at Night, That Chew Your A$# out All Day Long, (the first video and single...look for Vince and Rodney in drag as each others wife...) while may not get the radio airplay it deserves (let's hope it does) will be the song and video everyone will be singing to. Vince and Rodney both contribute about four songs each and the remainder is often a collaberation of writers. While the sound overall is definately country it does not sound dated or tired. There is a true energy that this band exudes. Great singing, writing and playing throughout. The whole CD is top notch but ,Dangerous Curves, and ,Forever Someday, stand out. Dangerous Curves is a mid tempo heart felt song from Rodney and Vince telling a married man ...you better go on home - she has dangerous curves... While ,Forever Someday, is a stone cold country ballad as only Vince could sing it. With country radio playing the same 5 artists same 7 songs 99 times a day, my hope is that this CD is not overlooked. Let's hope the Cherry Bombs decide to tour and that would be the only thing that could top this CD. A true masterpiece.

    Top Quality REAL Country

    If this isn't a top 3 candidate for Grammy and/or CMA awards, I give up. Every cut either makes me cry or makes me rock. This isn't pop radio country; it's the real thing. Interesting thing is that Rodney Crowell takes the lead vocals most of the time, with "bigger" star Vince Gill doing the background harmony. But when Vince has the lead, it's amazing, heart-rending, gorgeous. (I was never much of a Rodney fan until this CD. His voice is pure GOLD.) If there were a SIX or SEVEN star rating, that would be my choice for this stunning set.
