For his first record in....uh,
well, just a little over a year
(!), Bill Callahan's given us his
first Gold Record. They can't
all be gold, and they're not
all six years apart either - all
good! You could probably call
the album "Gold Records," too:
all the songs have a stand-
alone feel, like singles, meant for you to have a deep encounter with all of a sudden, from
the start of the song to the
finish. And what do you got when you have a
record full of singles - and let's face it, hit
singles, at that?
That's a Gold Record for you.
From the top, it's clear this is music with
an affection for people, as Bill immediately
slips easily and deeply into his characters.
Among them: a limo driver, a watcher of television, a suitor, a man in a broken-down car,
a reader of books, a Ry Cooder superfan, and
in the closing number, a wanderer who "notices
when people notice things". The voices of the
people, with their ups and downs, their loss
and laughter. You can feel the love.
These are in fact songs meant for other people to sing - but until they do, Bill's got
this. He's got a secret on this one, and before we go, we don't mind sharing it with you:
he's figured out how to perfectly place his
voice in proximity to your ear. It's based on
the distance from your heart to your brain.
Simple! Why don't more people think like this?
