CRITIC REVIEWS:

“If you are looking for a truly ‘American’ PAUL BUNYAN, Philip Brunelle’s Plymouth Music Series version of 1988 (Virgin) is the one. His richly resonant James Lawless plays Paul Bunyan as Hollywood superhero... And Pop Wagner’s ballad interludes, recorded with his guitar up close, really sound like popular folk ballads, complete with southern drawl... Balance is expertly managed in Brunelle’s recording, which fairly zips along, with sharp rhythms, tight, bright ensemble and a consistency of accent.”

- BBC MUSIC MAGAZINE



“Philip Brunelle's conducting catches the slightly brash, transatlantic spirit of the piece, and a good deal of its poetic charm too.”

- Andrew Clements, THE GUARDIAN, 21 Aug., 2003
