iTunes Review

The son of legendary producer Glyn Johns (who mixed this record at Sunset Sound in Los Angeles), Ethan Johns has racked up an impressive résumé himself producing other artists. Here he turns the tables and becomes the performer; he invited Danny Thompson, Laura Marling, and Ryan Adams to play along in a few spots. The songs were mostly recorded between production assignments, and their generally low-key nature suggests Johns wasn’t looking to make the production the focal point of his debut album. The songs generally fall into a casual, folky singer/songwriter groove that fans of his production work should find quite agreeable. “Hello Sunshine” sounds like something he pumped out at the end of a long session after everyone else went home. “Red Rooster Blue” throws keyboards into the dry mix. “The Turning” uses sound effects to further emphasize the overheard sense of the tune. “Don’t Reach Too Far” goes for Americana rock. “Rally” wigs out. “Whip Poor Will” and “Willow” settle down with a guest or two.

Customer Reviews

From exceptional producer of others to excellent solo effort

I really had no idea what a great producer Johns was until taking a look at a list of artist and albums he's produced over the years. The list of artist is impressive, but more so the quality of the albums. That said, I really enjoyed THIS album. He is an exceptional musician. I believe I shall purchase these tunes, kick back and enjoy the ride. If not now, when?

Very Good

I was intrigued by this album because I'm a big fan of some of the artists Ethan has produced - Ryan Adams, Ray LaMontaigne, etc. I wasn't sure if I would like his own work but figured it was worth a shot. Big payoff as this is a very intimate, enjoyable album. If you are a fan of those artists, you will like this album.
