ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Two years in the making, American Garage has 11 new original Don Campbell songs as well as two covers. Without a flicker of doubt, this collection of songs displays Don’s creative range as songwriter, singer, musician and producer like no previous project. This is an adult contemporary album with hints of country, bluegrass and even some rock acoustic sounds...classic American music.

Don wrote the original songs during 2007, and inspiration came from subjects as diverse as Pat Tillman (Red, White & Blue Heart); to Dads/ (My Old Garage & The Hero in Me); to different expressions of love (You & Me; Let It Show & Beautiful Rain); to the environment (Tilt-a-Whirl) to the phenomenon of the show, American Idol (Heavens Open Up Now) to transition and making moves (Faster Than Lightnin' & Cut Off My Ear - two of the most uptempo numbers on the project!) to what ended up being the final addition to the collection...a song called "Finding Your Way Home", inspired by the deaths of two very influential music men, Brad Delp and Bill Chinnock. For the listeners’ dessert, Don has provided two cover tunes at the end of the CD - a power ballad version of Tom Waits’ ‘Ol 55 and an uptempo bluegrass version of Meat Loaf’s “Two Out Of Three Ain’t Bad”.

Bandmates Andy Happel, Todd Richard & Sumner McKane recorded on the project in Don's Maine & Tennessee studios over the year. Tonya Shevenell - Executive Producer of the project and Peter Shevenell – Graphic Designer of the project. This CD contains 16 page liner notes containing lyrics and song prologues as well as live photos of the band.

American Garage
One of the best Albums that The Don Campbell Band has done. I love Back Yard Holiday also, but this is Excellent. What a pleasure to listen to such a good band. Don, Tonya Andy, Sumner, and Todd. They all work well and sound so good together.

Alan MacInnes

Lots of variety
This is a great studio album, the acoustic and electric
guitars are very tasteful, not overwhelming. Every
song is different.

What I like about this album in particular is that
it does not try to reach for any established
commercial style. The music stands on its own without trying to
do that.

"The Hero In Me" is such a great little song!
(I can't fly either!)

"My Old Garage" - I can appreciate the idea, but is the
only song that doesn't do it for me.

"Red, White, and Blue Heart" that is a great one, they
play that one often live and I hope they continue to.

I had to reach far in my memory banks to recognize that
"Two Out of Three" was originally from Meatloaf (late
1970's).
