"I Wrote My Name On You" is a classic from start to finish, and the originals are particularly strong. Lonnie Knight is one of those rare talents who can combine great writing, a memorable melody and immensely tasteful playing into something that transcends a mere song. In every song, there's always that perfect word or perfect note or perfect dynamic. David Hanners, St. Paul MN
Here's some powerful music for acoustic true believers: It's I Wrote My Name On You, Lonnie Knight's new CD. I am very familiar with all of Lonnie's albums going back to the early 70s, and I mean it when I say the guy doesn't make anything but good records. But I Wrote My Name On You appeals to me in a very different way. Granted, there's no one in this country doing what he does with the acoustic guitar, everyone knows that, but maybe it's the guts and confidence of these very personal songs done in such an up-close way that gets to me.
I won't give away the story behind "I Still Say Hi," but this song is almost more than I can listen to in a casual way. And he does terrific updates of a couple of his older songs, "There Is a Dog in Rockford" and "Somebody's Crying Mercy," two of my faves. (I used to do a cover of "Mercy" myself.) And for you spooky, late night people, his "Burn This House" is your new anthem. In addition, Lonnie usually does a well-selected cover or two on his recordings, and this CD includes cool versions of a Mark Knopfler and a Dave Van Ronk tune, but my fave is his dramatic rendition of Leslie Ball's "Patch of Blue," a line from which is the source of the album's title.
Trust me on this one, folks, this is a CD worth buying. Four stars on this baby, and you'll thank me for this recommendation. Fredy Argir, Austin TX
