So Many Miles Review

by Rob Caldwell

Recorded on two nights in April, 2000 at Toronto's Tranzac Club, this live document shows Canadian singer/songwriter Stephen Fearing at his best. An engaging performer and natural storyteller, he covers songs from throughout his career in addition to a sensitive performance of Neil Young's "Thrasher." A new song, "When My Baby Calls My Name," is mellow and jazzy, while elsewhere his guitar gets a workout ("Blind Indifference," "James Medley"). Adding to the qulaity of the album is the excellent sound, recorded and mixed by Colin Linden, a musician in his own right and one of Fearing's cohorts in the part-time band Blackie and the Rodeo Kings.
