Album Review
Be Sharp
Reviewed 2011-09-29 
A Texas-style singer-songwriter; his PR blurb mentions Townes, Guy, and Jerry Jeff—he ain’t that good, but you can hear those influences. This is Talmadge’s 7th album; ZK says we have three others in deep storage. All songs written by Talmadge, except track 1.
No FCC issues.

1. * By David Olney, who’s written for Emmylou, Steve Earle, others. Mid-tempo country love song. His singing is better here than on other tracks. Electric guitar. (3:27)
2. Mid-tempo, folky. About a street violinist in Germany. Features a pretty fiddle. (3:29)
3. * Mid-tempo title track. Kinda-sorta Guy Clark-ish. Spoken/sung story telling. (3:38)
4. Reminiscence in fast waltz time of great first kiss. Spectacularly schmaltzy. (2:42)
5. Slow, sad, down n out. Kids have moved away. Life is hard. Yuck. (5:02)
6. * Slow, folky lament to a girl who left. Old-time dobro, mandolin, backing vox. (2:50)
7. * Country ballad. Memories of a teenage summer romance. Nice pedal steel. (3:56)
8. Yet another girl and a long ago summer. Mid-tempo this time. (4:11)
9. More slow, sad storytelling. Something bad happened years ago. Getting tedious. (3:41)
10. Mid-tempo love song. Sort of a campfire-song feel. Nice mandolin and harp. (2:50)
11. Slow love song, backed by violins. (3:31)
12. * Finally something happy. When you’ve just fallen in love. Nice fiddle & dobro. (3:11)
13. “Bonus (sic) track” Schmaltzy Christmas waltz. The pedal steel is nice though. (4:26)
