Nine years ago, I reviewed Tom's double album, 'Tom Rush/Wrong End of the Rainbow', on this site, and ended by commenting that, now nearly 60, Tom was overdue for a return to the public eye and ear. You can work out for yourself what sort of age Tom must be approaching now, but you wouldn't guess it from the quality of his voice & guitar work!

This is his first studio album in over 35 years - and it will not disappoint his fans. It should also impress many who are not familiar with his music. As was the norm for Tom all those years ago, this album contains songs from an impressive range of unknown and little known writers as well as some from Tom himself - and he's supported throughout by a team of excellent musicians who are totally attuned to Tom's style.

Always a fine guitarist, Tom's performances are restrained - the song's the thing. Many of his contemporaries back in the 60s & early 70s seemed to accompany their flashy guitar playing with rather weak singing; Tom's vocal phrasing is superb, and his accompaniments are there to support the songs, not overwhelm them. (His DVD 'How I Play (some of) my Favourite Songs' will give anyone interested a good insight into his guitar style).

After two runs through of the CD's 15 songs, I have been especially impressed by 'River Song' and 'Drift Away'. I know there are plenty more which will grow ('East of Eden', 'Too many Memories', 'Fall into the Night' for starters.) There is a pleasing mix, with some light-weight numbers to offer variety. Many of the songs of about and for people whose hair is much greyer and joints are a little stiffer, but whose hearts still live to beat faster - a celebration of what the passing years can bring, perhaps.
So... not one to buy for the grandchildren, maybe.

I first heard Tom Rush almost 40 years ago and was mightily impressed with his voice, guitar playing and his choice of songs (He "introduced" me to the music of James Taylor and Joni Mitchell amongst others). His albums have helped to form the soundtrack of my life.
I held off obtaining this new album because I was worried that he might not reach the standards of old - even though his relatively recent "youtube" appearances should have put my mind at rest.
I finally obtained the CD this week and the WOW factor took my breath away!
This new album has been a long-time-coming (30+ years!) but the voice is crystal clear and the guitar work exceptional. Stand-out favourites from the first hearing include East of Eden, River Song, You're Not Here With Me and the heavenly Drift Away. Others soon joined this list from the second hearing onwards. There is something here for everyone, for every taste of music. Friends who have not heard Tom before have listened to this collection and enjoyed the sheer simplicity of a man very much at ease with this talent. The collection is enhanced by Tom's personal notes about each song. The only criticism about the package is the cover illustration where I would have preferred a photograph but maybe I am unfair in saying that.
In short, this is a wonderful collection of songs, beautifully performed by top class musicians all (just hear Kirk "Jellyroll" Johnson on that harmonica!). Enjoy!

Tom Rush is just like Marmite, you either love him or hate him, I am the former. This is Tom's first CD for years and he still has that magic to entertain. The rendition of 'Drift Away' is excellent. A disc to listen to on any occasion and you will find yourself playing it again and singing along to the songs.

Tom Rush has been a part of my musical world since I was first introduced to Circle Game those many years ago- 35, could it be? He is an icon in my world, along with those he introduced to folk music, James Taylor, Jackson Browne and Joni Mitchell. Joni wrote Circle Game but Tom Rush recorded it first-and this CD is a little like a Circle Game, 30 years after his last CD, he recorded, 'This I Know'.

This CD is more joyous than his previous CD's, you might not think so from the title, but it has more fun from the opening track 'Hot Tonight' to the last 'Drift Away'. Tom Rush tried to retire but he says 9 months of riding circles in his tractor convinced him that he wasn't set out for retirement.

The 15 tracks on this CD are all glorious. The first track, 'Hot Tonight' ii is said is an outtake of an old Sam Cooke song 'Wonderful World' it opens the CD to a bounce. 'River Song' was written by Tom Rush and the words are so lovingly written. Nanci Griffith sings with Tom on the track 'Casey Jones,' and Emmylou Harris takes charge on 'Too Many Memories'. My favorite is 'What An Old Lover Knows' and speaks of familiarity of the known. 'One Good Man' is a raucous song of what a woman is looking for, 'round the world. Remember the old song 'Drift Away', Tom Rush brings a new melody and feeling to it. "Give me the people to free my soul, I want to get lost in your rock n' roll and drift away'. And he does, he frees our soul.

Why did it take Tom Rush 30 years to record a new CD?
