The songs on this album are near to Cynthia's heart because they have been part of her journey as a singer. Many of these songs have been performed in concerts from the very beginning and have never been recorded. She speaks of homesickness, doubt and faith. She is, as always, honest in content and delivery as she allows her faith to shine through the music.

In Cynthia’s words, from the liner notes:

“It was Mama’s piano. Old. Spinet. Hardly ever completely in tune, yet the most heavenly thing in our house...except for Mama. We played it all the time. And many Sunday nights after church services people would gather in the parsonage around the piano and sing and sing.

The piano had never been reworked or adjusted in any way when I was growing up, except for an occasional tuning. The felts to this day are the original ones. They are so packed down with all of that energetic playing that they are as hard as the hammers on which they are attached. Mama’s piano now has a distinct honky-tonk register even though it was gospel songs that beat the felts flat making a thudding sound like a Dr. Pepper bottle being set down too hard on a picnic table in Comfort, Texas.

When we came to record this series of songs, we thought about renting a good piano because the one in the studio was old, and worn and sounded more like temple blocks than a piano; but as I sat down and ran my fingers over the yellowed keys, I was suddenly back in Yoakum in the front room and Mama was standing behind me with her hands on my shoulders. I miss her. I miss the times we had playing, singing and I am glad that we found a piano that can stir up all those precious memories.

This instrument—way past its prime, served me in a profoundly simple way as I sang out all these episodes that came right out of my life”.

Always

Cynthia Clawson

In cart Not available Out of stock

"Always" is a recording that Cynthia has wanted to make for a long time. After years of singing these great love songs taught to her by her parents, Cynthia took a giant step and got Will Courtney, who grew up listening to her voice, to produce her dream in the recording studio singing the music of another generation. The music is classic. So is she. With the brilliant, crisp jazz influence of Marvin Gaspard and his jazz trio, she captured the joy and beauty that is the essence of these songs. From the popular song "Always" sung at her parents wedding, to the dramatic cover of Nancy Wilson's "Guess Who I Saw Today," to the happy coincidence of the pairing of "If I Only Had a Brain" with Willie Nelson's "Crazy," Cynthia Clawson continues to delight and surprise her listeners using her remarkable gift to sing of love.

A Private Showing

Cynthia Clawson

In cart Not available Out of stock

In late 1978, Cynthia went to Woodland Sound Studios in Nashville, Tennessee and recorded “A Private Showing” (often referred to as “The Brown Album”) before an invited live audience. Produced by the legendary Buryl Red with his signature producer's touch, only 500 copies of the original album were ever pressed! Cynthia, her husband, prolific lyricist and playwright Ragan Courtney, sister Patti Clawson Berry and poet Paul Pate wrote the words to the songs. Cynthia composed the music. The result was an honest and introspective collection of twelve songs about losing and loving—and experiencing the divine wonder of life. In classic “Cynthia” style, she pushed the boundaries of traditional gospel music with creative songs that were poetic, melodic and spiritual. For years, fans have asked that Cynthia reissue the album, since most had not actually heard it, but had heard about it. Until now, this rare album has never been reproduced and has remained a lost classic since the album was pressed in 1980!
