Eddie Chwill is a really good country singer.  He picked no
less than eight songs to record on this CD that was written by perhaps
Canada’s most prolific country music songwriter, Dick Damron.  Damron’s
songs are not only in the realm of Canadian country music, many of
America’s super stars recorded his songs.  Chwill has a very nice way to
interpret Damron’s songs, and adds his own very distinct style to the
songs.  I especially liked “Somebody On My Mind” because Chwill’s voice
is so very sincere as he sings the words he believes in.  I should
mention that Dick Damron was one of the producers of this CD.  I don’t
know very much about Eddie Chwill’s career as a country recording
artist, but I can say this, he stands tall in the realm of country music
as it once was, and should still be.  I believe his heritage is
Ukranian, a geographical area much in the news as I write this, and I
also believe that is a great combination for finding a sincere hook-up
to really good country music.  This particular CD was recorded as far
back as 1971, so you know it still has that really great original
classic and traditional country music sound.  He’s been singing country
music since 1957 on local radio stations, along with an occasional
television appearance, in and around Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.  He’s
been doing his version of country music for over 50 years now, so as I
forward this particular CD to the Rural Roots Music Commission, I hope
they hear the same heart-felt sincerity that I hear on this recording. 
As international country music goes, Eddie is doing a good job of
keeping it a ‘story-telling’ musical adventure, very unlike so-called
country music coming from Nashville these days.  Don’t have the
musicians names, but the steel player is very very good.  Anyone who
liked country music of the 70’s will certainly appreciate this very
meaningful recording.  I especially liked the closing number, “Too Old
to Die Young” that very famous Moe Bandy song, that sort of expresses
the situation with country music these days.  Hang in there Eddie, you
got a good thing going…………for fifty years no less.
