Album Review

Before one can begin to listen to Danny Schmidt's Little Grey Sheep, one might be distracted by the white sheep and the black sheep, caught in flagrante delicto, on the album's cover. One might imagine that perhaps they are responsible for the "little grey sheep" of the title (though, one might quibble, their offspring would certainly be "gray," not grey). Whether true or not, the image of the sheep surrounded by farmland does work as an introduction of sorts to Schmidt's rustic music. The opener, "Leaves Are Burning," creates a haunting, minor-key mood with Schmidt's deep vocals and stripped-down accompaniment built around acoustic guitar. In many ways, he reminds one of a traditional troubadour, though on the opener and "The Drawing Board" he would also fall into the post-Dylan singer/songwriter school. The arrangements grow from this acoustic base to a full-blown country band on the intriguingly titled "Go Ugly Early." These arrangement variations help keep the overall soundscape interesting. As is common with many singer/songwriters, Schmidt loves words, leading him to extend many of these songs to four and even five minutes. For singer/songwriter aficionados, Little Grey Sheep provides a good introduction to Schmidt's muse (along with the answer to where little gray lambs come from). ~ Ronnie D. Lankford, Jr., Rovi

Great Album

Excellent give a listen . Saw Danny in Naples NY,been a fan ever since .This man has soul.

Excellent!

Great album. Have all the others and never really get tired of them. If you enjoy good music with powerful lyrics, Danny Schmidt is your man.

Another great body of work

Danny continues his amazing work with Little Grey Sheep. All the songs that didn't fit in elsewhere (hence the title) have found a home here, and have a wonderful sense of belonging. My favorite tracks include Emigrant, MT, Adios to Tejasito, and Song for Judy & Bridget. A great album that I take something new from each time I listen to it!
