Product Notes

James McGovern Months in the recording but a lifetime in the making, 'Keep It Burning' a new CD by New York City native and resident James McGovern already is making waves and garnering raves in the rock community. It's easy to see why - James McGovern has reshaped what is means to 'Rock' as a writer, singer and guitarist, his well-crafted songs cut to the bone with a stripped-down, romantic take on rock 'n' roll that made one reviewer say, ''This is the kind of stuff that illuminates the purities and paradoxes of everyday life!' A veteran of the New York City rock wars for more than a decade, McGovern's undeniable talent has led artists such as rockabilly legend Robert Gordon, Television bass player Fred Smith and former Bob Dylan sideman Howie Wyeth to collaborate with him. McGovern's newest collaborator is venerated New York City guitarist Mark Bosch, who supplies cutting, incisive guitar solos that remind listeners of the celebrated Matthew Sweet/Richard Lloyd teamings of the early 1990s. Comparisons may be superfluous, but noted rock author John Glatt, who penned the biographies of promoter Bill Graham and the Chieftains, commented on the demo recordings, ''It's like a suave, desolate and spiritual crooner took over as lead singer of the Rolling Stones!' James's artistry has put him at the forefront of the underground Country Rock movement while having avoided most trends that have taken Rock to it's ugliest forms of expression, McGovern has created music that is meant to last a lifetime, whether insouciant or tearful, earthy or devout. With full attention paid to the craft of writing and performing, the deal is sealed James McGovern is for real and the listener will experience a manifestation of the last half-century of American music within this disc. As James has proclaimed 'Rock and Roll' is beautiful music too, and this he and his compadres testify.
