Calico is Ben’s debut album for Sci-Fidelity Records, the Boulder, Colorado based record company started by the String Cheese Incident. Ben debuted with an independent record in 1991 followed by the album Soar that was every popular on the XPN airwaves when it was released in 1993. The same could be said for his excellent his major label debut Almost Speechless in 1995 on Ruffhouse/Columbia Records that got a lot of airplay on XPN.
Arnold has always had a home and continues to have one at XPN because he’s an outstanding songwriter with a rough-around-the-edges vocal style and the talent to write hooky, melodic tunes. His songs have always had more to say then the typical singer-songwriter stuff you’ll hear these days even though he can write a love song like the best of them.
Calico’s 13 songs show many sides to Ben’s musical talents and it is a must have album to add to your collection.
