"David Olney covers "No Lies""

..........David Olney has a week spot for Holland. He likes to perform here because his audience listens and understands his songs full of puns. A Dutch songwriter even managed to get a song on Olney's album, we wrote about it earlier. On this CD is "No Lies" by Rudy van Dam from Leiden. It is one of the better songs with a noticeable resemblance with the style of Townes van Zandt. It must be a great honour that a renowned singer/songwriter from the USA recognized the beauty of this song written by someone from Holland..... - Dutch Country Gazette
