Album Review

Best known for his appearances on Garrison Keillor's Prairie Home Companion program, Greg Brown proves himself an able songwriter as well as a singer on Down in There. While the majority of the album's songs are ballads leaning toward spare folk and country, "Poor Backslider" fits snugly into a Southern rock groove, while "If I Had Known" lopes along like an old rockabilly shuffle; all serve Brown's broken-in baritone wonderfully.

Customer Reviews

Greg fans will appreciate this

If you are new to Greg Brown music, look to one of his later albums as your first purchase (Covenant, Live One, etc.). But if you have been listening to Greg for a while and are ready to expand your knowledge, this album will not disappoint. "Hillbilly Girl" alone is worth the purchase. "Band of Gold" will make you want to fall in love all over again.

One of the Best of All Time

My husband and I were watching a PBS show one night many moons ago about music along the Mississippi River. Greg Brown was included and we only got to hear a bit of his music, mostly in the background. Just those few simple strains and that amazing voice were enough to make me go looking for a cd. Down in There popped up first on Amazon, I bought it, and put it on. By the first chorus of "If I Had Known," I was a convert. You've all had those moments when an artist's music impacts you profoundly almost immediately (I always describe it as not knowing how you had lived up to that point without hearing it). Well, this was one of those moments. I have all of Greg's stuff, and his ability to connect with and poignantly write about the common human experience is truly a gift to us all, and put together with his spine-tickling dark chocolate voice, makes him one of the greatest ever, in my humble opinion. Come to Pittsburgh, Greg! We love you here!

Critic Josh Kun once described singer and songwriter Greg Brown as "a Midwestern existentialist hobo with a quick-draw mouth, a bloodied heart, and bourbon on his breath." One of the leading contemporary folk artists of the American Midwest, Brown's music reflects a poetic spirit while also sounding thoroughly down to Earth; his deep, craggy voice expresses quirky humor and the mysteries of life and love with equal skill, and over the course of a career that's spanned more than five decades, he's...
