Robert Morey's second CD release, and first 'solo' outing, includes contributions by his brother (and Brother's Keeper alum) David Morey and a number of other luminaries from Iowa City's considerable music scene. Eight original tunes keep company with a reverent cover of Bob Dylan's 'Tomorrow is a Long Time' and a folksy take on Lou Reed's 'I'm Waiting for the Man,' which features a hip button-accordion solo by Red House recording artist Dave Moore. 'Morey has a clean, clear voice reminiscent of James Taylor, and some of the songs [on 'This Time'] have a similar, Taylor-esque feel. But elsewhere, on more uptempo tracks, Morey puts more grit into his delivery, lending the tunes a more bluesy feel. The result is a solid, consistent batch of tunes.' --Iowa City Gazette 'A Midwestern story-book. 'This Time' is a collection of earthy songs with scenic undertones and sharp descriptions of daily life.' --Cityview [Des Moines] 'A great sounding disc with fine contributions by all hands. . . . The singer injects the tunes with emotional commitment and palpable sensitivity.' --Iowa City Press Citizen.
