Ripley clearly enjoys throwing in a wildcard track.
Ripley Review, 15 Jan 2011 [cached]
Steve Ripley:
Steve Ripley's debut album, Ripley from Boy Rocking and Audium Records, has been receiving rave reviews, and it's easy to see why. With the combination of a sincere "country" heart and an experienced Americana sound, Ripley uses his background in music, which travels as far back as 1970's when he founded the record label Red Dirt Records, to provide an easy listening, yet deeply introspective album to his fans and peers.
On the self-titled album, Ripley, who is also the lead singer and producer of The Tractors, branches out on his own to deliver 10 carefully chosen songs that represent all of who he is as a musician. Even the vintage equipment used for the recording was of importance to the Oklahoma native.
In a recent press statement, he says, "I put some new strings on my 1954 Martin D-28 acoustic, put a roll of tape on the Studer 24-track, sat down in front of a newly refurbished Neumann U48 microphone, which was plugged into a newly refurbished Beatles-era Telefunken V76 tube microphone pre-amp, fell into a groove in the key of E, opened my mouth and the words 'gone away' came out. So began the recording of this album. "Gone Away", the first of 8 songs that were written or co-written by Ripley, opens the album with the ending of a relationship causing a man to think on all of the things that have gone away over the years. The simply presented rhythms and rugged vocals portray the image of one who feels each word that is torn from his soul, even as it expertly paves the way for other nostalgic tunes, such as "Too Many Borderlines", "Oklahoma Blues", and "Down, Down (I Don't Believe You)".
There's no "one" word that can describe Steve Ripley's style of music. He defines himself in a category of his own as he shares heartfelt stories, such as the tale of "Mr. Jingle Jangle", which expands on one man's feelings of seeing only gray in a world where it seems that everybody has someone but him, or on the Jim Pulte/John Herron compilation of the poignant, yet inspired "Sweetheart Town", of a young woman who rises above plagues of the past to remember her dreams are still out there somewhere.
