I'm dying to know. My subscription for Sing Out! magazine is expired -I just re-upped, but it'll take a while. The Spring 2003 issue (May) was supposed to review SOUL OF A WANDERER.

Anyone see the mag yet? Any news on the review; good, bad, indifferent?

Hi, Jed - I looked through the reviews twice, and didn't see one for your CD. I did find it listed under "Publication Noted," but no review. Maybe I missed it, but I checked pretty closely.

Well, I'd give your CD a good review. I really liked it. Click here for a thread about Jed's CD.

Say it isn't so, Joe!

Really? One of their editors contacted me last winter, asking for another copy to be sent to his home address so he could cross check the review as written by one of their reviewers. He said the review would be in the May issue. Sounded reasonable to me so I snet him another copy.

Maybe I've been had by a clever record thief!

Quick response from Sing Out!

I wrote and asked them about it - wondering if I'd been had - and they said, no, not this time, at least. They had to push it and several others up into the next issue.

That's OK. It'll give me time to get my subscription sorted out. I'll look again in the Fall.

Jed Marum. Sounds like the name of a lawyer or maybe a private detective on CBS. You agree? Is that your final answer? Are you sure?

Sorry, but this Jed Marum is a professional musician. And, no, there won't be a weekly television show anytime soon featuring a folk musician. Not even on Fox.

So, you'll have to "settle" for this release but there will be little, if any, disappointment.

Marum is a New England refugee now ensconced in the Texas music scene. This CD amply demonstrates his talent for both writing his own material and selecting songs of others, while arranging and presenting all in a very enjoyable manner. A tick or two over 60 minutes of music is offered here and close to everything works.

Three of his four originals, "Desolation Island," "Banks Of The Mobile" and  "Letter From Lilac Acres," demonstrate a sharp talent for turning novels or stories into compelling songs. His fourth original, "Soul Of A Wanderer," is a lovely fictional tale.

An old Andy Stewart tune, "Ferry Me Over," evokes longing-for-home wistfulness. "The Sons Of Liberty" presents the mixed allegiance of Irish lads fighting for King George in the Revolutionary War.

"Drill Ye Tarriers" provides a touch of humor as a railroad laborers' supervisor proves to be an exceptionally strict interpreter of labor laws. The changing of rhythms in "Phil The Fluther's Ball" works well with the song's cleverness.

Marum rewrites "Wild Mountain Thyme" into a dedication to a friend who has passed on--entitled "Sarah's Mountain Time."

The only quibble is another version of "San Antonio Rose." Nothing is "wrong" with this one but nothing makes it stand out, either.

Marum's vocals are pleasing and he presents the Celtic-flavored offerings with an engaging lilt. Simply put, he can write, select, arrange, sing and play. Many of the cuts feature atmospheric backing that develops the flavor of the song and adds to the enjoyment. There may not be a song here that gets in your head and refuses to leave but, collectively, you'll be wanting to play this CD again and again. It's a nice one.

Marum, on vocals, harmonica and guitar, is ably supported by Rick Fielding on guitar, autoharp, mandolin and background vocals; Dennis Pendrith on string bass; Curly Boy Stubbs on guitar, mandolin, 12-string guitar, classical guitar and resophonic guitar; Brian McNeill on fiddle; Don Reed on fiddle and violin; Wendy Solomon on cello; Betty Blakley Waddoups on whistles and background vocals and Mick Lane on background vocals.

Well, in spite of two attempts to resolve my subscription.

Can anyone tell me if the review ever appeared in the newest issue?

In Tucson, Border's Books carries Sing Out!...

But sorry, I don't see it in the Summer 2003 issue, either.

Hey, Jed, I did a Google search on your album to find the label name (since nothing in SO! is alphabetical except for the "Sources of Recordings" list) and I was really impressed at the number of reviews linked. Looked good!

Jed - don't be bummed. Think of the lesson you learned.



From early childhood days....through college.... and on into adulthood....it is AMAZING the amount of Crapolla one can get if one only askes.



To my credit I have recieved, (sometimes by the case-load,) stamps, games, dolls, peanuts, canned soup and tamales, ammunition, books, magazines, earth-worms, and every other sort of sordid things, through the US Mail.



Ask and you shall recieve.



Sincerely

Gargoyle




You don't buy their magazine ...why should they review you CD?

I wrote and asked what was up. They said the reviewer declined to review it and suggested I send 'em my next one.
