Performer Notes
  • Personnel: James McMurtry (vocals, guitar, baritone guitar); David Grissom, Audley Freed (guitar); Steve Bruton (guitar, slide guitar, background vocals); Lloyd Maines (pedal steel); Steve James (guitar, mandolin); Ziad Rabie (saxophone); Mark Rubin (tuba); Arnetta M. Crooms, Erica Bratton, Lenny Federal, Donald Lawrence (background vocals); Jim Brock, Don Dixon.
  • Recorded at Reflection Studios, Charlotte, North Carolina.
  • All songs written by James McMurtry.
  • Whereas Too Long in the Wasteland debuted James McMurtry's gift for delineating characters and situations within a song, Where'd You Hide the Body finally gets around to matching that talent with some heavy-duty musical talent. Produced by Don Dixon (who also plays on all tracks save the last), with guitar great David Grissom and a superb set of backing musicians, Where'd You Hide the Body outstrips McMurtry's other efforts with its sheer range. From a funky "Fuller Brush Man" to the aural intensity of "Rachel's Song," this 1995 Columbia release pleases each time it is heard, and is much more than a vehicle for McMurtry's songwriting talent. ~ Jeff Crooke
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (9/7/95, p.73) - 3 Stars - Good - "...Like any attentive writer, McMurtry makes the listener contemplate the characters, but the unassuming power of his music transports his narrative from the intellectual to the visceral..."

Entertainment Weekly (7/14/95, p.55) - "...a Texan Lou Reed, without the heroin references..." - Rating: B+
