James Talley

The Road to Torreon

· This custom CD does not include the photographic book. It is the music CD only.
· Torreón Productions/UNM Press 1992
· Produced By James Talley, Gary Laney and Dave Pomeroy
· Recorded in Nashville, Tennessee
The Road To Torreon is a song cycle about poverty, love and death. The production is spare, and effective in its use of elegant acoustic guitar figures against gentle chord progression. Like an out-west John Prine, Talley gracefully transcends Southwestern glitz and gets right down to the dirt of life in villages of northern New Mexico.
— Gil Asakawa, Gazette-Telegraph – Colorado Springs
