By Kim on Jan. 1 2006
Format: Audio CD
This was an extremely innovative album, not only for Paul, but for Canadian music as well. Clearly, the intent of this album is far from centered around impressing an American audience. This is the only album I can remember in which all songs are new and recorded live (Save for Canadian Man). And this is certainly the only live album which will ever be recorded in towns like Fort McMurray, Alberta, or Flin Flon, Manitoba. What seemed to be a back-to-basics concept worked superbly in expressing a piece of our unique Canadian identity.
First, I was a bit annoyed that I didn't get a chance to see him on his Small Towns tour. I recall that he drove all across Canada in his 'Canadian Man Van', while occasionally stopping for a 'double double' at Tim Horton's. Anyway, I didn't get a chance to see him because he completely avoided all major cities in Canada, but simply went to the small towns which are always overlooked by other musicians. The result is a very intimate album that incorporates an appreciative and enthusiastic audience.
Since some of his best songs on Calm Before the Storm, I have not heard anything from Paul as unique and innovative as some of the songs found on this album. The first single, Canadian Man, gives a comical and romantic spin on the every-day Canadian stereotype, and although not written by Paul, the song could not have been put together or sung so magnificently by any other artist. However, the problem with this song is that it is not live and therefore sticks out like soar thumb. I feel the album loses some effect or at least the song loses some effect with it's inclusion.
One thing I despise in live albums is over-editing, which I find to be a tiny problem on this CD.

What a wonderful album! When you think country music; Paul Brandt is at the top of the charts...well, at least he should be. He is definitely the most underated country artist out there. This small town boy from Alberta has been overshadowed by the likes of Garth Brooks, Alan Jackson, Tim Mcgraw, Toby Keith, Kenny Chesney, JMM, Brad Paisly and many other well known country singers. Paul Brandt is one of a kind quality, the only artists in the same class as him are Garth Brooks, Tim McGRAW.
I've had the pleasure of seeing Paul once in concert, and the performance was impecable. His live vocals are as good as the CD, unlike many performers out there. Every song he has ever released has been awesome, there are no bad songs on a CD of his. There is no such thing as a "filler" song to Paul, every song on his CD is great. This is a CD you can put on when your mad, sad, or anywhere in between, it's guaranteed to lift your spirits. The messages are deep, the lyrics are powerful, the music will make you laugh, cry, dance, sing, and all in all you will feel warm inside.
Even if your not a country music fan, you'll love it. I also listen to music like eminem, 50 cent, Dmx, so believe me, it can touch all audiences. Paul's music is pure, genuine, honest, and it will bring you hope and encouragement in life. It will leave you with a positive attitude and instill into your heart that love and peace is important and very much attainable in today's world of violence and corrupton. Overall Paul's music is very spirited and uplifting, an influence that we need more of in today's world.
KEEP IT COMING PAUL, CAN'T WAIT UNTIL YOUR NEXT ALBUM!!!

First of all I would like to make a corection the Realse date for this album was 2002 not 1969 (Paul was not born yet)
This is a very good album as is all of Pauls albums.
all the songs are great Paul is an excellent song writer and singer. I would recomend this album and all of pauls albums.
Paul is not only a down to earth person but he is also a great friend

This is a great album, but even if it wasn't, I'd buy it just for the song "When You Call My Song". The song is a heartfelt cry from a man to his creator, a beautiful, transcendent piece of music that's truly spectacular. Close your eyes, listen to the words, and be taken away. Paul Brandt is a gifted artist, and this may be his greatest musical creation yet.
