I don’t know how this one slipped by me, except to say that I was in Tamworth when it was released and you get caught up in what you are doing there and miss everything else. So, sorry Warren! I also looked for reviews and album details and could not find much, so my usual details are missing here.
One thing though, is that this is one of the happiest albums of the year. All of the songs are upbeat and positive, almost to the point that some of the songs could be featured on Play School and go down well with the toddlers.
Most of the songs are about family, togetherness, and just enjoying the little things. Warren has been around for a long time and he has a wide and loyal following. He reminds me of Jimmy Little, I think the torch has been passed on to him. He has such a gentle, country sound with important messages always delivered in a subtle fashion.
Of course, I particularly love City Lights of Tamworth, being a Tamworth girl, but there are many songs here that are just so easy to listen to and relax to.
Warren has always had that pure country sound and he doesn’t ever waiver. I am glad that he is having chart success with his new single I have travelled, and hopefully this will inspire people to buy the album too.
He sings Let Us Stand together with some family members, which is a treat. There are a couple of heartbreakers, which is fair enough, it is a country album, after all. However, overall, this album is just pure joy and it puts a smile on your face.
A lot of the songs are true to what most Indigenous and indeed, all Australian Country Music singers relate to in general, the land. The open spaces, oceans, rivers, mountains, deserts, and the big sky.
Beautifully produced and lyrically and musically sound, this is a pleasure to wile away the hours with and a treat for every Aussie country fan.
