(May 2016) These songs on The Tom Russell Anthology 2: Gunpowder Sunsets leaves me in anticipation of whatever might be coming next from the best songwriter of my generation.  
Mike Regenstreiff, Montreal Gazette, Sing Out

Tom Russell is Johnny Cash, Jim Harrison and Charles Bukowski rolled into one. I feel a great affinity with Tom Russell's songs, for he is writing out of the wounded heart of America. 
Lawrence Ferlinghetti (Poet)

Tom Russell is an original, a brilliant songwriter with a restless curiosity and an almost violent imagination. “Blood and Candle Smoke” is vintage Russell, and the Graham Greene connection is a ‘beaut. 
Annie Proulx (The Shipping News, Brokeback Mountain)

Tom Russell is the last great American voice. Ken Bruen (The Dramatist, The Cross)

How great is Tom Russell? Isn't he the best? I'd like to quit my job and travel with him...if the money can be worked out... David Letterman, Late Night with David Letterman
