JACK TEMPCHIN - PEACEFUL EASY FEELING: THE SONGS OF JACK TEMPCHIN (Blue Elan BER1049)

One of my rock memories is of seeing The Eagles as a support group (in Liverpool, opening for Neil Young in the mid-70s).

ANTRY – Devil Don’t Care (Tres Lobas)

 

Listening to the tough, blues-rocking gospel of ‘Devil Don’t Care’, it is not difficult to forget the overly sentimental side that sometimes surfaces in both country and gospel – but Steve Antry, a member of Tulsa, Oklahoma blues-rockers Joyride, remembers it and it crop up on several tracks on this album. ‘How Far Down’ has a dramatic Americana approach, with searing gospel ad libs from guest vocalist Shaun Murphy and southern rock…
