"Instead of Congress regulating Wall Street, right now Wall Street regulates Congress through campaign donations."
- Sen. Bernie Sanders on the Thom Hartmann Show

 ‎"If a man has an apartment stacked to the ceiling with newspapers we call him crazy. If a woman has a trailer house full of cats we call her nuts. But when people pathologically hoard so much cash that they impoverish the entire nation, we put them on the cover of Fortune magazine and pretend that they are role models." ~ B. Lester h/t Cherie Blackfeather

COMMENTS on previous CDs...

"Some of the most thoroughly enjoyable tunes I've ever heard...tiny monuments to songwriting...For whatever elements came together to make the genius of Jim Terr and his music happen, we should be truly gleeful, grateful and gratified. 'Demos and Diamonds' is a square meal of music, a walk around town when all the lights are out and your first kiss, all over again."
      -Bill Hutchison, Santa Fe Reporter

New Mexico Singer/Songwriter Releases Debut CD after 27 Years in the Business!
    This is one of the most enjoyable albums that I have listened to in ages. So country, so interesting and so entertaining. What more could one ask for from music?
   [Jim Terr has been] described as a modern day Mark Twain, Will Rogers, Jimmie Rodgers and Jackie Mason rolled into one. Can I add to that list names like Shel Silverstein, Tom T. Hall, Bobby Bare, Ray Stevens and the likes--master wordsmiths all, and country boys too.
    This guy could quite easily make our stone country section on all counts. Yes, he is that good...this selection barely scrapes the surface of his huge talent...a killer songwriter and storyteller...
    ["Did It Hurt?"] I just cannot stop laughing... ["The Call"] I find it most delightful as I do the whole album...
    ...all of the guests give stellar performances...
         -Brian Ahern Country Music & More (UK)

British press release about Jim Terr and BuDDy - January 2010  

A Late Starter! impressive line-up of guest artists from New Mexico, California, Hawaii and Nashville. These include "Bluegrass Vocalist of the Year" Kathy Chiavola, Elvis impersonator Lonnie Yanes, the late western actor Slim Pickens, country music trucking star Buddy Converse and the Sneakers, Sara Jo Rubenstein, and Lilia.
      -Country Music Round-Up (UK)

Terr's CD spans parody, eye-opening sincerity
...Terr produced an entire album by [Slim] Pickens, including the Guy Clark song Desperadoes Waiting for a Train--which Clark says is his favorite cover version of any of his tunes.
      My favorite tune [on the CD] is a recent one--Reader's Digest Me... There's not a speck of cynicism in this song, no hipster sneer or yuppie smirk...Terr's simple sincerity in this song and one about his father's death (The Call, 1986) is eye-opening.
      -Steve Terrell, Santa Fe New Mexican, "Pasatiempo"


British Country Music Bulletin:
    An entertaining, description-defying collection... If one were to invite comparisons, you'd perhaps liken Jim Terr to Tom T. Hall, or, perhaps Paul Craft.

Comments on previous Jim Terr work:

"Wise, witty and whimsical (and sometimes sad)" -Tony Hillerman

"Bodacious" -Dave Barry

"Terr is clearly a menace to musical serenity, and we advise purists in all genres to keep their distance" -Ed Morris, BILLBOARD

"A cross between Tom Lehrer and Ray Stevens...sorely needed comedy in these uncertain times." -Country Music People (UK)

Comments on 2005 CD, Jim Terr & friends,
"Please Cut My Song, Mr. Travis"

"Combining comedy with tragedy, optimism with hopelessness and prolific wit with his favorite three chords, Jim Terr's songs are triumphant anthems to this difficult business of living. He shares equal territory with the folksy politicism of Phil Ochs, the sheer songwriting skill of Townes van Zandt, and the shamelessly naive sense of ironic humor of Loudon Wainwright III."
   -Bill Hutchison, Anthologist's Cabinet

"Jim Terr's spirit shows through consistently in his songs... It's the droll, sardonic, 'cut-the-B.S.' outlook known around the world as American." -James Fallows

Jim Terr's work has aired on the ABC, CBS, NBC/Mutual, Westwood One, BBC (British) and National Public Radio networks, Air America, Voice of America, the Larry King, Jim Bohannon, G. Gordon Liddy, Jim Hightower, Paul Harvey, Thom Hartmann, Peter Werbe, Mike Malloy, Dr. Demento, "Mountain Stage," Sam Seder, Jon Elliott, "This Way Out" and "Whaddya Know?" radio shows, NBC- and CBS-TV News, in film, and has been broadcast in over 30 countries. He wrote and performed the national jingle favorite, "Sing a Song of Snapple."

"In his letters and articles, Jim Terr makes too much sense. In any other country he would have long since been locked up."
            - Jonathan Alter, Senior Editor, Newsweek

"Jim Terr's spirit shows through consistently in the essays, songs and other projects he creates. It's the droll, sardonic, 'cut the B.S.' outlook that is known around the world as 'American.' His tone is especially valuable in an election year."                      
        - James Fallows

"Absolutely brilliant website. This guy does some of the best satire in the business.
One of the great comedic and auditory geniuses of our day." 
- Thom Hartmann

"A lot of times I don't like those (satire) songs, but I went around (singing) after I heard that song this morning, 'Pokin' the Bear....' " - Sam Seder, Air America

"A highly creative, satirical Outlander and asskicking comedian without parallel; an excellent writer...reminds me of Calvin Trillin...Jim Terr has too damn many websites" -Mike Malloy

"Refreshingly biting and intelligent comments on the current state of our politcal affairs"
    - Jon Elliott, Air America

"Jim Terr’s creativity and versatility are unmatched. Well, almost unmatched."
                            - Hodding Carter

"A gentle agitator...who's come up with a way to lower the country's political temperature." -Paul Greenberg, syndicated columnist

"Kicks ass!" -Jim Bohannon
