Good review for Shooting Star CD in latest issue of Maverick magazine

The January 2011 issue of Maverick magazine has a review of the Shooting Star CD by my band Saloon Dogs. It's available as a PDF download now and the magazine goes on sale from 10 December.Here are the highlights: "...a rich and original mix of country, folk and even rootsy pop. Lead vocals are shared by Billy and his wife Maria and both have great feeling and empathy for the mainly sad-tinged songs like the emotive Sunday Morning or I Never Thought That She Would Ever Make Me Cry...It would be…See More

Good review for Shooting Star CD by Saloon Dogs from Rootstime.be

Very even-handed review for Shooting Star from Belgian website Rootstime.be. I never thought Bob Dylan and Neil Young would be named in a review of our CD. I've had to use Google Translate and then make it sound more natural because the literal translation was very messy, but the heart of it (and I hope this is accurate) is as follows:"From the first song, When I Look In Your Eyes, the tone of the CD is set: harmony vocals, acoustic guitars and tuneful pop songs. An ideal start for a carefree…See More

Nice short review on Fatea magazine web site for Shooting Star

Saloon Dogs just got a short and sweet review for Shooting Star CD on the Fatea magazine web site, and I quote:"Born from the ashes of The Bogarts, Saloon Dogs recorded their debut album, "Shooting Star" way back in 1996. It's taken fourteen years and the imminent reformation of the band for it to see the light of day. It's aged well, hopefully like it's audience. There's ten songs on the album, each exploring concepts of love, having both male and female vocalists, in the shape of Billy and…See More

Another good review for Shooting Star CD (from Northern Sky)

I'll freely admit that it's been a struggle to get reviews for our CD. I think it may be because the music falls down the cracks between folk, pop, country, acoustic and rock. Anyway, when we do get them, they have been positive. The latest is from Northern Sky, the Folk/Acoustic/Roots web site. Thanks to Allan Wilkinson for taking the trouble to listen to the CD and to review it.This is an extract:"The songs have a distinctively acoustic sound and come over as delightful folksy pop songs, but…See More

Great review for Shooting Star CD by my band Saloon Dogs

Great review for the Shooting Star CD by my band Saloon Dogs on Dutch music blog altcountryforum.nl. It's in Dutch, but the meat of it, courtesy of Google Translate, is here: "Already at the first hearing the CD sounds fresh in the ears immediately. Straightforward folk-pop songs with perfect harmonies which the dose of bliss emanates. "Shooting Star" contains ten powerful songs in a fun way to keep your head hooks with lyrics about extinct and thriving love relationships. The music is catchy,…See More

Great review for Shooting Star CD by my band Saloon Dogs

Great review on Dutch music blog altcountryforum.nl. It's in Dutch, but according to Google Translate (which ins't perfect but will have to do) it goes something like this: "The music is catchy, sometimes happy, sometimes sad but always honest. "Shooting Star" is a wonderfully entertaining album with a basic acoustic guitar, pleasant melodies and exceptionally beautiful singing. Sometimes there is no need for the listener to get into the seventh heaven."
