Released in 1989, "Ghosts Upon the Road" was Eric Andersen's first American album in 12 years. Making his best album since his classic "Blue River". The sound here is friendly, rich and mostly acoustic. Andersen's smoked tenor is as reassuring as ever, and his deft control of melody pleasingly familiar. The Stories here are not all pretty, but they ring true, even if it hurts. Rolling Stone Album Guide, 1992. I first heard some of the material on this album when Eric Andersen appeared at the now defunct Folkways Coffee House in Peterborough, New Hampshire on Thanksgiving eve in 1992. Andersen is the real thing, a super talent who writes, composes, and performs mostly his own material. That night his rendition of a number of the songs here, including "Belgian Bar" "Spanish Steps", and "Irish Lace" brought oohs and ahs from the crowd.
