ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Jackson Griffith, Sacramento News & Review 10/28/04

At the forefront of Sacramento's recent explosion of first-rate Americana acts is Richard March, who holds court these days every Wednesday night at the Blue Lamp's "Nashville Nights" feature, along with Scott McChane and whatever guest they rope in. This CD, cut with March's band at David Houston's studio, frames the local singer-songwriter as a homegrown John Hartford, with a firm grasp on American folk, bluegrass, pre-hat-act country music and the iconography of rolling boxcars. At times, March sounds like a bluegrass Waylon Jennings ("Helicopter"); at others, like Hartford ("San Francisco"). His songs include parallel-universe 1960s country classics ("Better Believe") and Dylanesque political jeremiads ("Rome"). And the CD's instrumental prelude and coda are nice touches. A fine disc

Songs so personal you'll feel like he knows you
If you could only listen to one cd for all of enternity, you'd want it to be These Dreams. From the sweet sound of the mandolin and the lonesome wail of the fiddle, you'l want to keep this cd in your player. The characters in the songs are brought to life by by March's captivating voice. These Dreams is one of the most enjoyable albums I've heard in long time. Make sure to listen to "Justin" and "Nebraska"!

Samantha Olson

good country music with a twist
"These Dreams" starts out good and grows on you like a dear friend to become a favorite in your collection. Richard March writes killer songs: genuine lyrics delivered flawlessly with heart, backed up by an excellent band to boot. Check out "Step by Step," "Long Gone," and "Christina" for some kickin' samples, but really all the tunes on this album have a tremmendous amount to offer. The "twists" have emotional substance, which is a refreshing break from music that seems complex for no reason.

Mike Rofé

"These Dreams" is a CD that you can listen to the whole way through.
I believe that peaks and vallys make a CD really enjoyable. In order to listen to an album the whole way through, it has to move. That's just one thing I love about "These Dreams". It doesn't get boring and it keeps you listening.

Richard March has a soft but firm voice and his stories are so clear that you can't help but see his lyrical imagery play out in your head.

Some of my favorites include "San Fracisco", "All I ever Wanted" and "Hellicopter"

It's definitely a CD worth checking out.

Mr. Sandman delivered a truckload!
These Dreams is more colorful than you might imagine! From mandolin and fiddle to pedal steel guitar and a telecaster that fearlessly leads the way, the instrumentation subtly backs March's rich baritone vocals without ever compromising his lyric integrity. Meanwhile, bass and drums are well balanced and gently hold the group grounded. This is purely great roots music at your fingertips...

V.M.E.A.


This album has a soul that carries the audience through the up and downswings of a day, a year, a friendship in good spirits. The harmonica and acoustic instruments add spice to the sound. You'll want to turn a song off in the middle just to have it swirl around with you for a while.

Terri

Truly amusing!
Richard marches on sharing his tales of San Francisco where every neighborhood's a nation, of schoolgirl Christina who plays the leave-me-'lone card, of Justin who's bustin' rocks and breakin' chains, and of finding your piece of happiness 'fore it's Long Gone. Great storytelling, great melodies, great vocals and instrumentation! Fun-to-sing-along songs with clever lyrics are neatly sandwiched between a sweet instrumental bonus track. Truly amusing!

Sandi

This CD is really great!
I really enjoy the upbeat, swingen sound of These Dreams. This CD is perfect for any type of atmosphere. I play it in my coffee shop, listen to it in my car, and sing along in the shower. The songs on this album are right at home feeling! Absolutly Brilliant!

Dave Middleton

Straight up, no bulls@#t country music!
The music that Richard March writes - and has captured so beautifully on this album - is some of the last true classic country music left out there. Over the past decade or so, the genre has been bastardized from coast to coast, from the vacuous sheen of modern Nashville country/pop to the indie rock elitism of young "Americana" and "roots" revivalists. These Dreams contains none of this. Instead, we are treated to clean, clear, unpretentious renditions of songs you'll swear are all standards from the country music songbook, but you were never cool enough to hear. Richard March deserves to be star, and this album deserves to rocket country music back to the simple, sweet, and honest place from whence it came.
