Burr, Mile After Mile (Kickin' Dust Records 1998) - Richard
Burr features an easy-going, Eagles-style California country
sound. With such likable songs as "47 Miles" (including a subtle
reference to his Fresno roots), Burr is a friendly talent.
Burr grew up in the orange grove country of Lindsay, California, in the shadows of the Sierra Nevada mountains. Burr played on the Central California coast for many years, and was well-known in the San Luis Obispo area.
Mile After Mile is Burr's first solo project, and boasts a smooth sound that brings to mind the recent efforts of Jackson Browne on such cuts as "Kindness in the World." There's also an easy touch of twang on tracks like "Carter Lee & Brenda Rose."
Burr sticks to positive messages on Mile After Mile, and makes it a pleasure to come back to this album.
