'Barry Crompton is a songwriter,performer and record producer of extraordinary ability, which has been demonstrated by sustained international acclaim' The American Federation of Musicians, Nov 2003. 'Dangerous Acquaintances' is the tenth album from Canadian born singer/songwriter Barry Crompton.Crompton's trademark thoughtful lyrics and well crafted melodies are augmented here by some world class musicians, including former members of Van Morrison's band and British guitar virtuoso Norman Barratt, regarded by people who know about these things as 'the guitat players' guitar player'. As ever with Crompton the song is the thing. And these are some of his best. From the howl-at-the-moon blues of 'Let That Man Just Be' to the reflective acoustic ballad 'Favorite Souvenir' through to the rye country musings of 'Break My Heart, Make Me Cry' Crompton lives up to the words of a recent review, 'Barry has the rare ability to sum up life's key moments in one brief image and a handful of words that shoot straight to the heart with the speed and accuracy of Cupid...' KASMIR KLUB LIVE REVIEW The US release of 'Dangerous Acquaintances' furthers Crompton's reputation has a songwriter and performer of note. This remixed, remastered and repackaged release also contains three extra tracks not on the original UK release. A great follow-up to 2003's acoustic 'Cowboys & Pirates'.
