'Baseball's troubadour poet laureate...Chuck combines his gift for lyrics and melody with his love for baseball history and culture, and in the process creates a new chapter in the folklore of our national pastime.' ---Tim Wiles, director of research, National Baseball Hall of Fame Library 'A sharp eye for detail, a wicked sense of humor and the ability to create memorable characters.' ---Philadelphia Inquirer 'Passionate observer - twister, remaker, syncopator of the simple tale, the not-so-simple cliche...Social commitment and the individual heart go hand in hand with humor, wit, and longing.' ---Village Voice (New York, NY) 'One of the most insightful and well-rounded collections of baseball songs in recent memory...The Baseball Ballads serves as a reminder to fans about why the game pulls on the heartstrings of anyone who has rooted for the home team...Brodsky's songs pinpoint the everyday details that comprise a player's life and create baseball history...The outcome is a fascinating collection of ballads that can be considered classics worthy of the national pastime.' ---Baseball America 'And then there's Chuck Brodsky's tremendous new CD of all baseball songs, 'The Baseball Ballads,' also in the folky, countrified genre...This is gorgeous music that might even teach you a little baseball history while you're singing along.' ---Jayson Stark (ESPN) 'This is a grand-slam home run of an album!' ---Dirty Linen 'The Baseball Ballads is full of songs about misfits and faded glories...Brodsky's clean fingerpicking, shaggy-dog twang and gentle melodies give the album an easy coherence, but the stories and characters are what count. These tales, obsessively researched and rendered with off-beat affection, put some skewed humanity back in a game that needs it.' ---No Depression 'The Baseball Ballads is a collection of songs celebrating little-remembered heroes and goats, a smorgasbord of bizarro baseball history that serves as an affectionate antidote to the game's current ills...Brodsky's mix of comedy, tragedy, and sentimental storytelling will make a lot more sense even to a neophyte than the recent rounds of salary demands and profit-sharing negotiations...Brodsky turns his eye for irony on the whole of baseball history, and comes up with some spectacularly improbable stories...Brodsky (who has an amiable Dylanish twang) sings about baseball the way it used to be: unpredictable, colorful, somehow laden with moral force...he enshrines a game that mostly exists in memory.' ---PopMatters 'Chuck weaves breathless tales of breaking the color barrier and creates short stories of some of his own favorite players with one of the most pleasing voices in the genre. The tales are marvelous and the rapid-fire delivery begs attention.' ---Creative Loafing (Charlotte, NC) 'The Baseball Ballads' is a collection of brilliant Brodsky originals, each song reflecting some colorful character in the game...Brodsky hits these tracks out of the park, and they go on for miles...These are tales of baseball's quirky, dedicated and sometimes unloved participants...These are characters in the periphery, people who carved a unique niche in the game, on and off the filed...' ---Asheville Citizen-Times 'It's to Brodsky's credit that these baseball songs can appeal to people (like me) who don't even like baseball much, and it's because whatever subject he touches, Brodsky is able to give it powerful human interest.' ---The Canton Voice (Ohio) With arresting songwriting, groove-oriented guitar playing, and a soulful, compassionate voice, Chuck Brodsky quickly became a fixture on the national acoustic music scene. In 1992 he won the Emerging Songwriter Award at the Napa Valley Folk Festival in California. His debut CD, 'A Fingerpainter's Murals' (Waterbug Records, 1995) was a critical favorite with it's collection of vividly rendered stories--from a farmer losing his land ('Acre by Acre') to a washed-up pitcher trying to hold on a little longer ('Lefty'). But the song that cemented Brodsky's reputation as a funny and trenchant songwriter was 'Blow 'em Aw
