Entertainment Reviews:

Rolling Stone - 9/17/92, p.94
3 Stars - Good - "...The magic is in his lyrics. McMurtry seems to have inherited a hawk's eye for detail from his dad..."
Audio Magazine (9/92, p.104) - Performance: B+ - Sound: B+ - "...McMurtry's songs are taut vignettes in which his sharp eye for detail suggests the storyline...quite compelling and subtle..."

Product Description:

James McMurtry is the son of novelist/screenwriter Larry McMurtry.
Like Dire Straits' Mark Knopfler (but with less mumble), James McMurtry offers a deep, personable (if plain) voice and delivery, equally suited to both country and rock. The instrumental backing veers between and blurs the two forms, the fluid dynamics rendering the distinction irrelevant. Whatever you call it, the music serves up a perfect backdrop to McMurtry's strong suit -- his evocative, short-story lyrics. Eventually, rock appears to win out as guitars veer into overdrive on "Save Yourself" and "Storekeeper"; the disc finally closing with the wistful, acoustic "Dusty Pages." ~ Roch Parisien
