Dear friends, at last my new album Boomtown is released. It is an album that will take you on a journey from MacDougal Street, Greenwich Village, NY in 1966 through an America and a world that has been tattered but has also reveled it beauty as we have all aged, all the way through to a future moment when civilization leaves us all behind and touches down on a new planet.
Luminol - the Houston Sessions
My sister Patty produced this new CD at her studio “Sanders Sound” in Houston Texas. Many amazingly talented musicians contributed their time and love to this project. I am eternally grateful. For this collection of songs, I did my best to put my finger around this nation’s pulse at this time of it’s history in which uncertainty, nervousness, anger, betrayal and a sense of being helpless, fill the uneasy winds that blow through our collective hearts.
The Best Of Tom Pacheco The Secret Hits Vol. 2
Here is my “Volume 2 Best Of - The Secret Hits.” Every song on this project was recorded between summer 1989 and spring of 2011. There are two brand new songs I have never recorded until now, “That Old Dog And Me.” And a new anthem for the working man and women who’s collective bargaining rights are daily under assault all over the world. The song is called “Solidarity”. The other songs were released on albums I recorded in Dublin and Randlestown, Ireland, London England, Oslo and Halden Norway, Nashville Tennessee and Woodstock New York. The new track was recorded in Houston Texas.
I’ll Leave a Light on For You - 2010
Railroad Rainbows & Talkin Blues - 2008
I have written tales inspired with my love for this country and it's atypical characters that make us cry out for change, while respecting the lives already lived. I was lucky to be able to record this album with my brother Paul, who plays bass and lead guitar. I hope you enjoy listening as much as I have recording it.
The Secret Hits - The Best of Tom Pacheco Vol. 1 -
We don't have to tell you... You're already in on the secret or you wouldn't be reading this now... Tom Pacheco is a unique and imaginative performing songwriter cast in a troubadouring tradition that stretches back, sometimes heroically, through centuries of song, launching poetic comment upon the tides of the time, the flavors of life and all the wonders of its circumstance. - Gary Alexander
There Was a Time - 2006
This album was recorded with Pete Seeger, Jay Unger, Richard Bell, Leslie Ritter, Scott Petito, Jerry Marotta, Beth Reineke and other fabulous Woodstock and Catskill Mountain musicians. Some critics have placed it in the top 5 of all the albums I've recorded. It is a meditation on life, love and national politics. I think you will like it a lot! Tom
Bloodlines - 2006
This is a collection of many styles of songs There is no over-running "theme." Just lots of different moods and emotions. The most important things in life are health, family and friends. And this album reflects that. It is intentionally done with a raw, unpolished sound, as though it was done in a living room with everyone sitting around and playing together the way people used to before social conditioning and media distractions isolated us from one another. This is a special album to me.
Tom Pacheco and the Hellhounds Last Stand - (1986
This is a live in a club recording of the last time me and my back-up band the Hellhounds ever played together. It was at the notorious Uncle Willy's in Kingston, New York. A wild and rough seething club full of bikers, biker chicks, poet-angels, blue collar working people, defrocked priests, paranoid journalists, murderers, strippers, streetwalkers, prizefighters, female wrestlers and New York city onlookers slumming with the crowd of people they heard about existed but never experienced. It is rock and roll and hard blues and gangsta-cowboy. I wrote and sang all the songs and I could probably get arrested for some of the things I was up to at that time. The sound quality is not great but it's all I have to show of that time in 1986.
Swallowed Up In The Great American Heartland (1976
This album was recorded in summer 1975 in Los Angeles, California, produced by legendary producer George "Shadow" Morton. People who accompanied me in the studio were James Burton, Byron Berine, Chris Ethridge, Jim Keltner, Gail Davies, Bill Payne, Andrew Gold and several other great artists from that incredible L.A. singer/songwriter scene. Even though I was still 28 years old when it was recorded, it is the first album I did that I was proud of the songwriting.
The Outsider (2005)
This album was recorded in 1976 on RCA Victor Records and is out for the first time on CD. This album is a science fiction alternative country album backed up by Kris Kristofferson's back-up band at that time, plus other stars like Doug Dillard.
13 Stones - Bare Bones IV (2005)
Here is a new bare bones album completely solo. Recorded at the Turning Mill Studio in Palenville, New York. Every song is new and addresses an important issue for our times.
Rebel Spring (2005)
Rebel Spring is sort of my "times they are a"changing" album. Though it is very political, I try to sing gently and not use a "hammer" to express my feelings about this country and the world during these times. Most of the songs are told from a human perspective, through the voices and stories of real flesh and blood people.
Year of the Big Wind (2004)
This is the 3rd in a series of "Bare Bones" albums. It was recorded in Woodstock. It is an album with Jim Weider on various guitars and mandolin. The songs are all set in the American South and Southwest. Having lived in Texas for a couple of years and also Nashville for a year and a half, I always wanted to make an album with songs depicting that area of the country and it's people.
The Long Walk (2004)
In Halden, Norway in late 2003 I recorded this album with four great young Scandinavian rock musicians. It was released in February 2004 in Scandinavia only. One of the songs, "Che" is a ten minute story of the life and legend of Che Guevara. 2 sided cover only, lyrics available for viewing or downloading on the albums page.
Woodstock Winter (1997)
I flew from Ireland to Woodstock, NY to record this with "The Band". It was great working with those guys. I felt I was in the presence of greatness and was humbled not knowing how it would turn out. I was so happy that they included two of my songs on their final album "Jubilation". Rick Danko later recorded two of my songs on what would be his last album before his untimely death in Dec. 1999. 2 sided cover only, lyrics available for viewing or downloading on the albums page.
Bluefields was produced by Sverre Erik Hendersen and Steinar Albrigtsen in Oslo, Norway in winter. It was backed by all Norwegian players who in my opinion are some of the best musicians in the world. The great writer Gary Alexander considers it my best album along with "Rebel Spring". 2 sided cover only, lyrics available for viewing or downloading on the albums page.
Luck of Angels (1994)
A Nashville album done in 1994. I worked with some of Nashville"s finest session players. "Robert and Ramona" which is on this album became a top 5 single in Norway and the album reached no. 10 on the top 40 "pop" charts, though it is definitely not a "pop" album, strange business! 2 sided cover only, lyrics available for viewing or downloading on the albums page.
Eagle in The Rain (1989)
Eagle in the Rain was recorded on both Northern and Southern Ireland. It was produced by Van Morrison's guitarist Art McGlynn. It was my first album after a 13 year hiatus from recording and I've recorded a new ablum every year since. I'll always think of it as the album that got me back on track. 2 sided cover only, lyrics available for viewing or downloading on the albums page.
Tales From The Red Lake (1992)
I flew from Ireland to Nashville to record this in spring 1992. It is an album of tales and stories, wistful, funny, dark, spooky, and contemplative. It's one of my favorite of my own albums. 2 sided cover only, lyrics available for viewing or downloading on the albums page.
The Lost American Songwriter (1999)
On this album Jim Weider, lead guitarist for "The Band", produced 30 songs over a couple of days. We only did one take of each song, both of us playing together. This is a real basement tape recorded in Woodstock. 2 sided cover only, lyrics available for viewing or downloading on the albums page.
Bare Bones and Barbed Wire (1997)
I went into Sun Studio in Dublin, Ireland with legendary musician Pete Holiday from the Irish punk group "Radiators from Space". I recorded a double album, 34 songs in one night with Pete producing. It was a wild night! 2 sided cover only, lyrics available for viewing or downloading on the albums page.
Sunflowers and Scarecrows (1991)
This album was recorded in 1991 in London England, produced by Kenny Denton who also produced Buddy Hollies group, The Crickets. It ws recorded with British rock musicians and features a special appearance by legendary Tec-Mex accordion player, Flaco Jimenez. 2 sided cover only, lyrics available for viewing or downloading on the albums page.
Steinar Albrigtsen and Tom Pacheco - Big Storm Com
I recorded this album with Steinar Albrigtson in Oslo Norway in winter 1993. The Scandivian record label thought it was too controversial thinking at best it would sell 4 or 5 thousand copies, but it went on to sell 100,000 and produced a number one pop single, Beaches of Real. 2 sided cover only, lyrics available for viewing or downloading on the albums page.
Steinar Albrigtsen and Tom Pacheco - Nobodies (200
Also recorded with Steinar Albrigtson in Woodstock, NY at Levon Helm's studio and Scot Petito's studio with members of the Band, including harmony by Rick Danko which was the last time Rick voice was ever on tape again because he died two weeks later in December, 1999. 2 sided cover only, lyrics available for viewing or downloading on the albums page.
