4.0 out of 5 stars Sweet Solo 21 Nov 2012
By Glenn TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Val McCallum has an impressive CV of guitar-assists having played for these and more: Jackson Browne, Lucinda Williams, Ron Sexsmith, Loretta Lynn, Tim McGraw, Shelby Lynne, The Wallflowers, Natalie Merchant. This album presents him as a strong solo singer-songwriter and performer with a number of stand-out tracks but also more introspective and complex growers. One of the latter variety is fourth track 'Deal With It' with its simply strummed acoustic and a poignant narrative about dealing with death, and then the song ends with the catharsis of McCallum's electric slide providing an emotive peak along with the harmonies that also rise in volume at this point. It is a powerful song and well worth the rewards of careful listening. This is followed by a Neil Young 'Old Man' rhythmic pilfer for 'Ghost Town' where there's more cool slide.

The album opens with stand-out 'Digging For Gold'. This is perhaps the prettiest song melody-wise, with beautiful vocal harmony, but I also like the clever discordant notes in the opening guitar lines, and its layers are further developed by later subtle electric guitar. This is followed by another strong song 'Tokyo Girl' written about meeting his wife Sheli in a bar in Tokyo in 1990. This is also a very simply strummed acoustic song with the simple honesty of romantic confession.

We arrive at the title song as the eighth track and by now the pattern is firmly established: strummed acoustic over which stabs of electric layers open the vistas in the storytelling. It is a gentle and calming view overall, and album closer 'Rarebird' confirms and consolidates this with more complex acoustic guitar playing - relatively speaking - and McCallum's softly sung stories, here ranging into a higher register where it meets more close and varied harmonies. This is a sweet end to a sweet solo outing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Val McCallum 14 Feb 2014

Currently this guy backs Jackson Browne and very subtle he is with him too. So it's nice to hear him going solo with some nice ballads and great guitar

5.0 out of 5 stars Astonishing musician!! 4 Feb 2013
By John E - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This is McCallum's first solo CD. He is a wonderful songwriter, singer and guitarist!!! This effort shows the other side of McCallum's more incendiary style that he demonstrates with the band Jacks***. I saw him play as the lead guitarist for Jackson Browne and friends along with Dawes guys Tony Goldsmith and Blake Mills. Jackson had Val do a solo version of Tokyo Girl. It was a highlight in a show that was full of highlights. In any case if you are a fan of Alt Country and Contemporary Folk buy this disc!!! And, if you ever see him or or his band coming to town, go see him play!!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Some good tracks 12 Sep 2013
By Steven Evans - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
There are three, maybe four, reasonably good tracks on this album but overall I found it a little disappointing. I find some are significantly better than the rest - Tokyo Girl, Digging for Gold and the title track.
