Editors’ Notes

In 1994, Warner/Reprise decided to shelve Nashville singer/songwriter Shawn Camp’s second album. Sixteen years later, the project has been rescued from the vaults, making available some exceptionally smart and tuneful country music. 1994 confirms the promise Camp showed on his self-titled debut album and makes clear that his later success as tunesmith for other artists was no fluke. Produced by Emery Gordy, Jr., there’s plenty of keening pedal steel and rootsy fiddle here, along with nods to bluegrass and Bakersfield-style honky-tonk. Camp’s clear-toned vocals are applied to songs mixing inconsolable heartache (“My Frame of Mind,” “Since You Ain’t Home”) with a jaunty attitude towards romantic loss (“Near Mrs.,” “Little Bitty Crack In Her Heart”). At times — especially on “Clear as a Bell” and “The Grandpa That I Know” – his work displays the masterful craftsmanship of a Tom T. Hall. “Movin’ On Up to a Double Wide” is a wry working-class vignette, while “Worn Through Stone” (featuring vocals by the legendary Bill Monroe) is classic country balladry.

Customer Reviews

1994 - What a great year!!

This was a great album in 1994, and has only gotten even better simmering in the "vault" for 16 years! The song "THE GRANDPA THAT I KNOW" is amazing and brilliant, everyone should hear it - this should be a SONG OF THE YEAR - you will love it on the first listen...this song is original, heartfelt and sung in a truly personal way that touches everyone that has ever lost a dear grandparent or close relative. What a great sound, first-class writing and unique vocals on this album. So refreshing compared with many of the current releases on the radio today. What can you say, this album was "Clear As A Bell" way back in 1994 and it's even clearer now - "Vintage" country at it's best! "In Harms Way" is also soulful and beautiful.

Wonderful!

What an incredible country album that sounds just as good in 2010 as it would have in 1994! So glad it has been dusted off of the shelf and released!

Did this really happen?

What a great surprise! One of the great singer/songwriter gems of Nashville. The Grandpa That I Know is a favorite. Don't miss "Live at the Station Inn" as well! Thank you Esposito.
