 QUOTES FROM RECENT PRESS:

“‘Glorlyand’ [is] an often harrowing tour of the back-roads South with scenes of burning churches, a serio-comic brawl after a ZZ Top concert in Shreveport, La., and — most memorably — the time the Klan showed up when his seventh-grade marching band performed about 90 miles from there in Colfax.”– Peter Applebome, New York Times, February 22, 2012

“Four stars… The sheer brilliance of the lyrics to Colfax/Step in Time alone justifies a top rating for the first album in seven years from this Southern-raised poet/rocker. Gordon sketches a not-so-simple portrait of a junior-high marching band on a bus trip, and every single image feels, tastes, smells and sounds absolutely true.”– Jerry Shriver, USA Today, February 14, 2012

“Dude’s a juke-joint professor emeritus.” (3 1/2 star review) – Wil Hermes, Rolling Stone, March 2, 2012

“…the poor, benighted bastard appears to suffer from a surfeit of integrity. He also bears the burden of enormous talent. Gordon makes music thrilling in its multifarious resonance — believe it.”– Playback St. Louis

“A multifaceted diamond of rocking Southern soul, groove grease and songs that make you want to climb into the complicated world Gordon evokes with a natural-born musician’s feel and storyteller’s ear for nuance.”– Pasadena Weekly

“I love the record. I get transported to a beautiful, strange, familiar place. It’s where the best music comes from.Deep and soulful. It reminds me of why I love music….”– Buddy Miller, on “o Come Look at the Burning”
