iTunes Review

Here, rustbelt troubadour Cohn compiles a selection of early tracks recorded before he struck gold with “Walking in Memphis,” from his 1991 debut. His nimble piano playing and wistful arrangements are in full effect on opener “Maestro,” a touching tale about a veteran musical arranger; tender guitar picking underpins the personal reflections of “Nowhere Fast,” which later shows up with affecting string accompaniment. While billed as demos, the songs are nuanced and carefully instrumented, revealing the talent Cohn had for spinning melancholy yarns from day one.

A Treat

Any Mark Cohn CD is worth the wait, but his voice sounds more pure on this latest work. I love the ballad feel...simple, yet profound. Thanks Marc

Marc Cohn is back!

Like everyone else has said, classic March Cohn.

Worth the wait!!

I have been a Cohnhead from the beginning, and have been to many of his shows. The anticipation for this record has been a long wait..., but after listening to every song, it was definitely worth the wait. With each song I had a new favorite, until the very last one. They each have the amazing storytelling that Mr. Cohn does so well, his incredibly clear and powerful voice and beautiful music of course. Do not just purchase one or two songs, or you'll miss out on all the other great ones. Purchase the album, go sit somewhere peaceful to you, and take each one in, as he takes you on a journey with him. Thank you Marc, for sharing parts of your soul with us, still.
What a gift you have been the past 25+ years.

One Sunday morning in the early '70s, a youngster in Cleveland caught an earful of Van Morrison's Astral Weeks and his life was never to be the same. That kid was Marc Cohn, and soon after that morning, he bought everything Morrison had released to date, along with works by Joni Mitchell and Jackson Browne. Soon thereafter, an older brother taught him a Ray Charles tune on the piano, and he joined a cover band, Doanbrook Hotel. He sang with them from junior high school until he left home for Oberlin...
