Tony Joe White: Deep Cuts (Munich Records MRCD 295)

Tony Joe White: Deep Cuts (Munich Records MRCD 295)





Revisiting old favourites from early in his career, Deep Cuts is a record of startlingly new versions, an extra layer of 21st century electronics and production providing extra swamp and menace to the famous Tony Joe sound. If that sounds like a desperate attempt to revive a stuttering career, then think again, because this is vital, interesting stuff as those deep, deep vocals and… Continue

Adam Puddington is one of Almonte, Ontario's golden sons, and he wears the legacy proudly. Rural Canadiana seeps into his songs, bringing the curious beauty of rivers, wildlife, rosaries and trains. Especially rivers and trains,… Continue

Micah B. Smaldone



Red River Rough Cut





Red River Rough Cut is intended as a sampler for a new album that Micah is working on. The 5 untitled pieces on the CDR are simply great songs and remind me of the best work of Jimmy Webb or Townes Van Zandt while sounding nothing like either. The songs are stripped bare and every note and word is neccesary with nothing out of place.





Currently Micah is touring in the UK and Europe. Below are… Continue

John Train - Leachman's Ghost

At the Triumph Leader Museum, which houses a collection of gifts given to Saddam Hussein over the years, curators had removed things from the display cases and squirrelled them away for safekeeping, although it was doubtful how safe anything would be anywhere in Baghdad once the bombs began to fall. I went to the museum to take another look at the gun that had been used in 1920 to assassinate Colonel Gerard Leachman, a British officer who spent the First World War in the deserts of what was… Continue

Lou Vargo - American Disaster





Received this E.P. through the mail and despite the usual huff n' puff it had some quality graphics and so I gave it a spin. Frank and honest recordings with an amiable straightforwardness that refreshing. Jack Hale ( erstwhile J.Cash producer) says..



"It is Lou Vargo...the look, the person, the song, the voice, the guitar, it is his persona. He wakes up and goes to sleep being this person...it is something you have or don't have...very hard to fake it in… Continue
