What Some are Saying About “For All The Good”

05.16.12

"What a beautiful album this is... an incredible musical extravaganza. I know what I like and don't like, and playing this in the car I listen to it the way I listen to Van Morrison. It's in my car, and I play it a lot. Seems like they've been playing together forever. It's a fantastic listen. I really love this record. I thoroughly recommend it to anybody."

Malcolm McDowell - Actor

 

"I put off listening to The McEuen Sessions for a long time because I thought it was therapy sessions with John McEuen and his sons.  I was relieved to discover that I was wrong.  I love this CD and hope to be in therapy myself soon.  A wonderful, melodic combination of strings, harmonies and siblings.  Its nice to see that some families can get together long enough to create such beautiful music."

Kevin Nealon - Actor/Comedian/Banjo Player

 

“I've known John since I was fifteen years old. Now he's all grown up with a musical family. This record soars with history and talent.”

Steve Martin - Banjo Player/Actor/Comedian

 

"I'm not surprised that Jonathan and Nathan are so talented and that the three could make such great music together.  Their love of family and performing shines through The McEuen Sessions.  I love it! Can't wait to hear more!"

Crystal Gayle - Singer

 

"Sometimes when talented families get together to make music, a special kind of magic happens. (Think of the Everlys and the McGarrigle/Wainwright family.)  Well, it sure happened here.  The McEuens make masterful, beautiful American music together as only people connected by blood can. I love this ablum! A magical must have recording."

Peter Van Wagner  - Actor (The Boardwalk Empire)

 

"The McEuen Sessions. Is a must have for lovers of good music. The trio features John McEuen, a founding member of the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, and his two exceptional sons, Jonathan and Nathan.  All three share a common bond and vision to create some of the most exciting music.  Jonathan and Nathan write lyrics that are both bold and provocative with lush melodies, combined with John's and their exciting musicianship you are transfixed into a world of delightful pleasure."

Roz Larman - FolkScene Radio (32 years on L.A.'s KPFK)

 

"When John McEuen would travel around the country with the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band or on solo performances he would often bring his sons, Jonathan and Nathan with him.  Whether or not he meant to, John put the desire to perform into both boys.  A performance by any one of the McEuens is a delight, but the three of them together on this album is a real treat.  Tight, brother harmonies, great playing, a tasty selection of both original and classic songs, creative arrangements, and top-notch production….it just doesn't get much better than this.  I can't wait to see the McEuens in concert."

Orin Friesen - KFDI-FM, Wichita KS

 

"The McEuen Sessions" is another McEuen masterpiece, but this time with multiple McEuens. Father and sons should all be proud. If they still played music on the radio, "Love Word" would be in heavy rotation all over the world - and the world would be a better place for it."
