ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Originally released on Gadfly Records, the release of Richard Goldman’s debut album, “GIRLS N’ COWS” met with rave reviews and heavy airplay on over 100 radio stations nationwide.
From STEREO REVIEW:
“...It’s good that satirical singer/songwriter Richard Goldman also writes fetching melodies and genuinely affecting, perceptive lyrics, otherwise we’d have to make do with a debut album that’s merely hysterically funny...Stylistically, the tunes range from “Revolver” -era Beatles (the gorgeous folk-rock of The Prettiest Girl at the Funeral, which should be a hit for somebody) to fake country... ...The bottom line: This is a thoroughly endearing album, and Goldman’s a real find.”
From the international music publication, TIME AND A WORD:
“...Goldman has his finger on the pulse of several contagious musical genres and files them with ease under a low-key, yet highly effective comic, pop/country and roots-rock banner. Goldman expertly performs all the instruments himself, with back-up vocals from Deborah Holland...Full of incisive and sarcastic prose combined with some truly inventive and stellar- sounding pop arrangements. ...a breakthrough album…”
Tony Peyser wrote in the SANTA MONICA MIRROR:
“…An absolute crack up…If anyone, Goldman reminds me of Harry Nilsson, but with more wit and less whimsy. His abundant humor and intelligence are in short supply these days in pop music…”
And this from MUZE, INC.:
“...Richard Goldman is a one-man pop army... Writing, singing and playing virtually everything on “GIRLS N’ COWS” himself, he displays a rapier-like wit easily matched by his cunning pop sensibilities...Goldman’s outrageous sense of humor permeates every track… Even a song like “All Of Her Girlfriends Are Braindead” that starts off with “She looks like a girl with a lot on her mind/but that’s where the paralell ended”--would be no more than a clever construct without Goldman’s seemingly endless supply of frothy pop hooks. From the twisted country of "The Good Years" to the twisted folk of "Zsa Zsa" to the twisted pop of "Elevator Music," Goldman turns the ears and mind of the listener inside out several times during the course of a song.....A nonstop pop tour de force.”
After a “Bring the house down performance” on Public Radio’s “Mountain Stage” the local West Virginia Free Press publication wrote...”If you’re partial to clever, well-constructed songs that will actually make you laugh out loud, it doesn’t get much better than this” and Goldman’s “Live” showcase was noted in numerous publication’s and e-mails as “One of the highlights of The North Amercan Folk Alliance in Memphis.
Richard Goldman lives in Los Angeles.
