AJ DOWNING —GOOD DAY (Self-Released)

http://www.ajdowning.com

 

Good Day is AJ Downing’s third album and what a fine one it is. Downing’s music isn’t too far away from that of Jack Ingram, hearty, gritty and it has a swagger. An observational writer like Ingram plus, he has lived quite a bit. For AJ has spent time living in California, Michigan and Nashville. He has played the Bluebird Café a time or two, met in 1989 (he was just 19 at the time) Steve Earle…

BUCK OWENS —UNDER HIS SPELL (THE FIRST FIVE YEARS 1956-1961) 2 CDs

www.jasmine-records.co.uk

 

Few country legends have shown such vitality and enthusiasm for their music as Bakersfield’s Buck Owens (1929-2006); best known by some for his huge hit ‘Act Naturally’ and when in 1986 he came out of retirement to record a remake of ‘Streets Of Bakersfield’ with then New Traditionalist Dwight Yoakam as he rolled back the years!
