During the history of country music, especially back in the 1960s and 1970s many country performers devoted entire albums to gospel, religious music. It became common practice. Among those that come readily to mind you have Johnny Cash, Connie Smith, Red Foley, Dolly Parton, The Louvin Brothers, The Statler Brothers, The Stanley Brothers, Marty Robbins, Vern Gosdin, Wanda Jackson etc and here we…

Now here is an interesting country project. For such is the line-up of songs and presentation one can’t help but be attracted to Texan Amy Francis style of music. Fans of Mandy Barnett, Patsy Cline and the like will love her work!

Robert James Selby: Scrapbook Ballads Vol 1

         “Play loud and whilst intoxicated” is the request on the sleeve. So I did, and, what do you know? There’s something pretty irresistible about Robert James Selby’s first recorded collection of songs, a naïve enthusiasm and sense of fun that carries all before it.

        First, you have to get with his voice. Highly reminiscent of early Bolan with it’s high, tremulous tone, Robert James (heck, can I call him Rob, his friends seem to) hits a note, takes a bit of a journey and…

Marc O'Reilly: My Friend Marx

             This is Irishman Marc O’Reilly’s debut album and it has already made waves for him outside his home country. One man and his acoustic guitar is what he does, a folk singer of rare intensity with a blues-infused guitar technique that has to be witnessed (via youtube in my case) to believe that really is just one instrument that you’re hearing. He does that intense busy-ness on the guitar that I’ve heard other people do, making a wall of sound that just blasts out at you, but it’s…

The Mystix: Mighty Tone


The Mystix, a blues/roots outfit from Boston (USA), have been giving this new album of theirs a big push but the sales pitch about them honouring American musical traditions didn’t do much to stir my enthusiasm. To be honest;…

Sometimes it can take me a little while to fully appreciate a new Chris Smither album but once I become more tuned in I find them to be keepers. Smither wrote every song but for ‘On The Edge’ —and this he shared with producer, slide guitarist David Goodrich.


On my initial listen I quickly gravitated to ‘What They Say’,…

Charlie Roth: Tartan Cactus Heart

Well I haven’t heard all of Charlie Roth’s previous six albums, but I suspect that Cactus Tartan Heart is his best work yet. Inspired by his recent troubadour travels around the British Isles, Charlie seems to have distilled his own particular melange of Celtic, country and folk music into something that touches…
