ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Dick Renko, Muzik Management; representing Trout Fishing in America; Harmonious Wail; Mollie O'Brien, and Sisters Morales comments: "As the reviewers suggest, Pie's singing remains strong, clear, and passionate. Listening to her music is like putting on your favorite pair of blue jeans, so comfortable and the fit is perfect, voice, words and music matched with real experience, character, grace, and charm. I was particularly moved by, 'Walkin' on The Moon'...this song is ageless. It works well for children and for anyone that is interested in improving, growing in life, and facing demons without fear."

Here's what CDBaby says: "Tugging at your pants leg, tapping on your shoulder, buzzing in your ear, replaying in your mind like a thought that won't give up until you give in to it, this album is a persistent, consistent effort of country-bred songs that beg close listening. Her songwriting comes as naturally as the cycles of the moon, her stories as tangible as the chill of autumn, always free and unforced. By their simple resonance, that just seems to feel comfortable and familiar, her songs need little personal tailoring to fully mesh with your own history. Fans of Mary Chapin Carpenter might as well consider this a required purchase. If you listen to one song, don't miss, 'Walkin' on the Moon."

John Alfano, reviewer for Amazon.com wrote:"...a few words to heartily recommend "Long Ride Home" to anyone interested in some excellent folk/country recordings. Taylor Pie, formerly Susan Taylor of the Pozo-Seco Singers, has a voice that remains vibrant...from the gritty "Blue Dog Lounge" to my favorite, the enchanting "Walkin' On the Moon." This is certainly a goodie from a most talented lady."

As a teenager, Pie recorded a song called, "Time", and it hit the #1 slot in Los Angeles, Chicago, and Boston. Four albums followed on the Columbia label with the Pozo-Seco Singers, and a solo album on JMI Records. She co-produced 3 Don Williams first chart singles, and then moved to New York City playing clubs like O'Lunney's, Folk City, and The Bottom Line, with Don McLean, and Jack Hardy.

The years have shaped her soulful messages and melodies into familiar feelings that conjure up the images, tastes and smells of things we thought we had forgotten. It is no wonder that Bette Midler, Tanya Tucker, Mickey Gilley, The Forester Sisters, Kathy Mateau, and Valerie Smith have performed her works. "Just Like Angels", written with Dickey Lee was nominated for the gospel Dove Award, and "Full Grown Fool" written with Allen Reynolds, landed Mickey Gilley a Country top 20.

Combining the roots of Appalachian melodies with a touch of jazz, gospel, and acoustic pop, Pie shines on her 6-string guitar or open tuned mandolin. As Eileen Kuperschmid wrote for the Berkshire Sampler: "Whether she's talking or singing, Taylor Pie's worth listening to. She's clear, real clear- with a mother lode of honesty and a voice as pure and light as it is strong."

This is a classic collection. You listen, you decide.

Just Excellent
I was a fan of the Pozo Seco singers in the 60's and I always thought she was the real talent not Don Williams -and 40 years later I am still right --she is the talent

Long Ride Home
Four stars for this Singer/Songwriter issue with very listenable songs and pleasant musical support. Gave 4 stars simply as Jubal is my favorite of the two Taylor Pie releases, but it does not minimize the quality of the songwriting or performance. Very happy to discover Susan's continuning contributions to the music world!

MORE, GIVE ME MORE, GIVE ME MORE
Wonderful CD... Especially loved Leave on the Light and Blue Dog Lounge... wish that the lounge were just down the street so I could listen to Pie again and again for hours. The tempo changed from song to song... wonderful, relaxing and leaves you with a grin and a nice warm fuzzy...

Glenda Harris

Wonderful sounds
Wonderful! Her 'clear as a bell' sound is a pleasure to hear. I put this CD on repeat for a great Sunday afternoon and discovered Taylor Pie is a good as she was years ago. Here's hoping she keeps sharing her gift with the rest of us.

AMAZING~IT'S REFRESHING AND IT GETS ME HOME AT NIGHT.
THIS CD WAS VERY UPBEAT AND EVERCHANGING.WITH EVERY SONG I WAS EMOTIONALLY SATISFIED. CRYING, DANCING, LAUGHING, SMILING, SINGING, ALL GOOD EMOTIONS RIGHT? I KNOW SO ESPECIALLY IN THIS MIXED WORLD OF A MILLION OF THE SAME ARTITISTS. LONG RIDE HOME WAS JUST REFRESHINGLY DIFFERENT FROM THE REST!

Dreaming of a voice
From the time I was in a lousy rotten place in SE Asia I've been in love with Taylor Pie, or Susan Taylor. What a clear voice that wraps you around her words and wanting more. Thank you for making life a little bit better.

This CD is wonderful. I've loved Taylor's voice ever since I heard the Pozo Seco Singers. Her voice has mellowed, but it still retains that melancholy quality that I fell in love with years ago. That quality lends itself beautifully to these songs; it makes the sad sadder and on the more upbeat songs, it sounds like she's earned that happiness. I love this CD.

Tugging at your pants leg, tapping on your shoulder, buzzing in your ear, replaying in your mind like a thought that won't give up into you give in to it, this album is a persisent, consistent effort of country-bred songs that beg close listening. Her songwriting comes as naturally as the cycles of the moon, her stories as tangible as the chill of autumn, always free and unforced. By their simple resonance, that just seems to feel comfortable and familiar, her songs need little personal tailoring to fully mesh with your own history. Fans of Mary Chapin Carpenter might as well consider this a required purchase. If you listen to one song, don't miss, "Walkin' on the Moon."

Very Greatly Talented Individuals made this Album/CD Outstanding!
Hi Pie, You cover many, many, styles of singing/playing, and the band [I would like to know Who is playing, and What Insturment] is very adept/proffessional at playing different Styles of Music, and Background Vocals!
I think you should send a copy of Leave On the Light to NASA... they need some PR help. Walking On the Moon... [Great] Don't forget to Dream A Double Dose of You!

Karl Browning

You have succeeded magnificently with this wonderful work!
I listened (sort of) to this CD-meaning, I played it in the
background while I did other things. I neither liked nor
disliked it. It sounded interesting, but didn't "blow my
socks off". Since then, I've listened carefully, fully
attentively - many times. I will treasure this CD as a
favorite for a long time. Careful listening made me
appreciate the range of music and the apparent careful
selection of the material. It will be high on my
recommendations to friends.
