San Francisco Days is a solid album all the way through without a bad song on the disc. I can remember owning it on cassette when it was first released in 1993, and I used to listen to it on my walkman (seems so quaint now) on the train after my job of working in telesales - a job I hated. Those are the main memories that this album brings back to me, and the melancholic theme of the cassette helped me to chill-out on my forty-five minute journey back home. All these years later, I'm pleased to revisit the album on cd.

As previously stated there isn't a bad song here, preferences yes but none that I'd skip like I might on some cds. Preferences include the title track "San Francisco Days" and "Round 'n' Round, Can't Do A Thing..., Except The New Girl, Waiting, Move Along, 5.15" and the Neil Diamond penned "Solitary Man."

The clarity of this CD is excellent with tracklist and song timings on the actual disc. There are no liner notes other than a list of people who helped make the album, and a few photos.

I am an admirer of the way Chris Isaak handles the media. He reveals enough of
himself to allow the audience to get to know how down to earth and humorous this
ex boxing surfer really is. Tracks like Solitary Man and Lonely With A Broken
Heart draws attention to his bachelor lifestyle and his inability to contribute
successfully to long term relationships.

San Franscisco Days is a haunting piece and the lesser known tracks such as Can't
Do A Thing, Move Along, Waiting and Beautiful Homes show his versatility. Isaak
comes from a small town and clearly loves Johnny Cash and Roy Orbison. I don't have
or want any music of either of these legends, nor do I particularly like country music.

However, like JJ Cale, Chris Isaak comes close to the borderline of the country genre,
presenting it in a way that I enjoy. I respect the simplicity of this music and his
distinctive voice that showcases a wide range. Above all, I admire the respect that
he has (and his love) for his music (with the same band) for decades. A real
trouper who relentlessly delivers quality in his own relaxed, tongue in cheek style.
He takes his music way more seriously than himself.

Chris Isaak presents himself as an uncomplicated undemanding friend, with entertaining
stories to tell originating as his own or not. This CD is no exception, this is especially
reflected in the lesser known tracks. Its good enough to create a relaxed ambience as well
as satisfy a critical listener. I liked the CD and recommend it.

I really enjoy Chris Isaak - he has a Harry Connick type of voice but with a lot more sizzle. However, I tend to like three to five songs from each of his cd's (I have three) and have yet to find one that is great from beginning to end. He has an extremely sultry voice and I like it most when he sings slower paced songs with a bit more crooning for lack of a better word. The best songs on this cd are "Can't Do A Thing (To Stop Me)" and "Waiting". Both of these songs are guaranteed to stop you dead in your tracks. Yes - especially the ladies.

I purchased this album after hearing one of the songs from it on the radio. The song was called Except The New Girl. I thought it was beautifully arranged and an absolute treat. The other track I heard on the radio was San Francisco Days, the name of the album. I thought that was a terrific song and possibly one of Chris Isaak's best sounding. This album is one of my favourite albums by Chris Isaak and I feel that all 12 tracks on here are of a very high standard.

This album came out in 1993 and today remains one of my favourites. Chris Isaak's voice has a reminiscence of Roy Orbison about it but with his own twist to it. I've always liked Chris Isaak's voice and his albums reflect on this and many of his material have stood out especially on this album. The arrangements and also the playing from his band are exceptional to say the least and Mr Isaak leads them and the listener on a ravishing and quite brilliant journey this album takes us on.

This album was one of my first Chris Isaak purchases and I picked up most of the others after this one. Chris Isaak is one of my favourite male singers and his voice has a rich and vibrant twill to it that's very distinctive and very recognisable. Comes highly recommended by this reviewer.

I think this is one of Isaak`s best records. Beautiful ballads, great up tempo rock songs, good melodies and his terrific voice. When this came out a long time ago it didn`t get the recognition it deserved because there isn`t a Wicked Game on the album, although i believe Can`t do a thing to stop me comes really close. Let`s face it, this man cannot do wrong. He has yet to make his first bad record and he has been recording since the mid eighties. One of America`s true legends. Buy with confidence.

I discovered Chris Isaak a few months ago. I now have five cd's, Baja Sessions is the purest in many ways, whilst my favourite is Always Got Tonight. This one is equally interesting with some lovely work on it.

For me good production values are critical and always present on his work which is why his music is always rich and has a lot going on. You can listen over and over again and never tire of it. Fabulous.
