Product Description

Product Description

Jim Byrnes lives and breathes music. For nearly fifty years he's crooned, drawled, belted, hollered and sweet- talked more songs into a microphone than most people ever get to hear in a single lifetime. Even so, he's never recorded an album like this one. St. Louis Times is Byrnes' most personal record to date. Reminiscences of his childhood home of St. Louis are expressed through his original compositions as well as versions of songs he grew up with that were recorded by St. Louis musicians. By revisiting songs associated with Chuck Berry, Stump Johnson, Little Milton, Peetie Wheatstraw and more, Jim Byrnes takes us on an intimate musical journey through a world that has passed by – just in time for the commemoration of the 250th anniversary of the founding of the city of St. Louis and the 100th anniversary of the song 'St. Louis Blues.'

By G. E. Harrison TOP 500 REVIEWER on 28 April 2014
Format: Audio CD
I've never heard Jim Byrnes before but this album that celebrates his hometown St. Louis' 250th anniversary and the 100th anniversary of the song 'St. Louis Blues' is very good and really encourages me to dip into his back catalogue. The record contains original songs as well as songs by St. Louis musicians including Chuck Berry, Stump Johnson, Little Milton and Peetie Wheatstraw. There is lots of variety here from the traditional jazz of 'St. Louis Blues' to the rock and roll ballad "I need a change", from the down-home blues of opener "I get evil" to the uptown soul of "You'll miss me" - with Jim sharing the vocals with Colleen Rennison.

Canadian guitarist Steve Dawson leads the band which includes Darryl Havers on keyboards, Jeremy Holmes on bass and Geoff Hicks on drums, and other musicians from Nashville round out the ensemble. Old mate John Hammond stops by to trade verses with Jim on "Duck’s Yas Yas Yas", play some tasty National guitar on "Cake Alley" and add his Jimmy Reed-style harp on "Evil" and "I believe that was a lie." While another Canadian guitarist Colin James also plays his distinctive slide guitar on Little Milton's ‘That Will Never Do’. Jim's earthy vocals hold the whole thing together and provide continuity across the different genres, this is a really good set of songs that even breathes new life into an over-played song like Chuck Berry's "Nadine".
