“a Louisiana supergroup” they happily look back to better times, recapturing some of the essential feel-good essence of the past.
Formed when founding members of two of the mightiest forces in American roots music - The Red Stick Ramblers and The Pine Leaf Boys - came together, they have unashamedly re-visited ‘50s swamp pop stylings, to fill some of the best-known dance halls of Southwest Louisiana…to emerge as new ambassadors for the music.
"I saw then at Folk Alliance in Toronto, and they have the authentic old time Cajun and Zydeco sound, perfect for dance halls everywhere". Rob Ellen

Covering the years 1956 – 1963 this little, 24-track selection of material contains American rock and pop classics that did better in the UK. It is one of six releases in the Radio Gold series, but first compilation to highlight the peculiarity.
Among the most interesting cuts featured you have The Crickets (post Buddy Holly) with their 1963 hit “My Little Girl”, former Louisiana Hayride radio show member songwriter Mitchell Torok’s “When Mexico Gave Up The Rhumba” (it was Torok who gave Jim Reeves, also featured here (“Welcome To My World”) and Gene Vincent & The Beat Boys’ version of “Pistol Packin’ Mama”. Albeit, some songs have fared better than others during the…Continue

Once again country outsider Eric Church brings a great deal of raw, tempered energy to the table. His ability to not only write and sing a song but to also take the listener along with him sets him aside other current country acts plying their wares.
On the back of a string of American County hit singles plus a show of interest this side of the pond, an appearance on Later with Jools Holland and London live gigs he got to come back and perform additional selected venues around the country recently. His music is very blue denim and rocks when needed, and there is this attitude thing. He is very much on the side of the underdog, and genuinely loves his fans. He doesn’t need anyone to tell him if weren’t for them there would be no Eric Church and band…Continue

From North Dublin, singer-songwriter Damien Dempsey is from a working class background, who earned his dues in today’s world of hard knocks and survived. Dempsey’s big break came (as said in his liner notes) one night at a house party in Notting Hill, London. He was over on tour, playing support to Hothouse Flowers and met John Reynolds, the two got talking, exchanged phone number and he thought nothing of it till one day he got a phone and invitation to come back over to record. The rest, as they say is history. This was 2002 and had Sinead O’Connor sing all over it. Can you imagine his head in clouds reaction, it is a wonder he didn’t disappear into space such the high Dempsey…Continue

Three classic Don Williams albums on two cds, how is that for value for money! Former carpenter and member of the folk trio, The Pozo Seco Singers, Williams was at the top of his game when he recorded this trio (1975-1977); just like he was during the period directly before and afterwards (till the songs seemed to run out). He is still making music, good stuff it is too and would you believe, touring (see UK, Irish dates May, 2014)
Little has ever changed in the Stetson toting easy, comfortable as an old boot singing style. Texan-born Williams has for years been welcomed by country (and more) fans from both sides of the Atlantic. Songs…Continue
