CHIP TAYLOR —YONKERS NY Train Wreck (media)

www.trainwreckrecords.com/

Chip Taylor is a legend! Nothing less, and once you have seen him put on a show and listened carefully to his records and no longer take him solely as songwriter you will also agree. He has penned such songs as ‘Wild Thing’, ‘Angel Of the Morning’, ‘Son Of A Rotten Gambler’ and ‘I Can’t Let Go’ among others but it is not until you acknowledge his worth as a recording act in his own right that you will… Continue

MALCOLM HOLCOMBE —FOR THE MISSION BABY - Echo Mountain Music (media)

www.malcolmholcombe.com

Here we have yet another superb album from singer-songwriter Malcolm Holcombe. Spitting out lyrics like bullets from a shogun, his rough-hewn vocals and acoustic guitar aided by the likes of his good friend Jared Tyler (dobro) plus Tim O’Brien (bouzouki, fiddle, banjo and mandola), Lynn Williams (drums) and David Roe (upright bass) he delivers an amazing set of songs.

MARTHA ANN BROOKS —LATELY…. Own label (media)

www.marthaannbrooks

Martha Ann Brooks is singer-songwriter originally from Montgomery, Alabama but raised in Augusta, Georgia who blends folk, country, and jazz with pop and has a wonderful controlled singing voice. Unlike all too many today she really can sing, and is a natural storyteller and an accomplished visual artist in the bargain!

Lately… is her second recording, following on from Simply… that contains her song ‘When… Continue

CHARLEY PATTON —THE DEFINITIVE CHARLEY PATTON PROPERBOX - Proper Records (media)

www.properuk.com



As blues legends go Charley Patton is up there with the best, and seen by many as the most important figure of the pre-war Mississippi Delta blues scene through his rich, full-bodied music.

In comparison to the likes of Robert Johnson, Howlin’ Wolf, Muddy Waters and Sun House among others he may often be over-looked, but that should not be the case as this Properbox set illustrates.

While the 4-CD set is… Continue

HEATHER MASSE —BIRD SONG - Red House (media)

www.heathermasse.com

www.redhouserecords.com

First off I must state what a fabulously voice New York-based musician Heather Masse possesses and that she uses it beautifully. With support from her band of Jed Wilson (keyboards), Karl Doty (bass), Lyle Brewer (acoustic, electric and baritone guitar) and Joel Arnow (drums) plus, Crooked Still vocalist Aoife O’Donovan on harmony vocals simple… Continue

Roy Rogers -- Split Decision (Blind Pig Records) (media)

Roy Rogers is one of the finest slide guitarists around today. Always in demand, he has a number of credits to his name, most notably as a member of John Lee Hookers Coast To Coast Blues Band and you will have heard his talents if you have ever seen the film One Flew Over The Cuckoos Nest as he features on the soundtrack. His sixth solo album begins with Calm Before The Storm, a grinding, shuffling opener with Rogers’ signature slide. Patron Saint Of… Continue

Tom Mason: Alchemy (media)

Tom Mason Actor and musician (or musician and actor), seems like an all-round good guy, living life to the full and keen for us to have some fun with him. He is one very fine guitar player and has got a cohort of familiar Nashville names to help out here - Jen Gunderman, Dave Jacques and Mark Horn of The Derailers amongst them. A joyful melange of American sounds from the modern country of I Surrender (as in, I could imagine Mary… Continue

Daddy: "For A Second Time" Cedar Creek Music ccm003 (media)

Daddy are an occasional band bringing together Will Kimbrough and Tommy Womack along with John Deaderick on keyboards, Dave Jacques on bass and Paul Griffith on drums. The thing with occasional projects like this is that nobody's going to get too po-faced. This is pretty much about having fun… Continue

CLAIRE LYNCH —WHATCHA GONNA DO (Rounder)

Bluegrass singer and hit songwriter Claire Lynch has changed little since I first heard her in the early 1980s fronting the Front Porch String Band and for this I am well pleased.

Discernable hints of Emmylou Harris to her vocals once present are now long gone as the… Continue

Since breaking onto the scene, the Old Crows have made a huge impression with their blending of traditional country, folk, blues, jug band music and bluegrass fueled by a ton of energy . That has made them firm favourites at festivals in Europe as well as their native homeland, the US.

Kevin Deal - "7 Seven"

A new Kevin Deal album is always a red letter day at The Medicine Maisonette, so I thought Ide spread the good news at Flyinshoes.



Kevin may even now be a new name to many confirmed Country Music fans, he may never achieve the record sales of a say a Tim McGraw or Toby Kieth, a fact that I'm sure at his stage in a career in the main financed by himself and maintained in true independent fashoin, he may have lost all part of the dream now but has come back with a… Continue

Hey Negrita: Burn The Whole Place Down

Hey Negrita: Burn The Whole Place Down http://www.myspace.com/heynegrita It's just great to find a new favourite band, there hasn't been one for a while, but this album is just great. Recorded 'as live' on acoustic instruments, 'Burn the Whole Place Down' shows all the qualities that make for a great band: great songs, great playing and a distinctive sound that is partly down to the wondrous interplay of these… Continue

Samuel James -- For Rosa, Maeve and Noreen (NorthernBlues Music)

Samuel James – For Rosa, Maeve And Noreen (NorthernBlues Music).



I reviewed Samuel James’ first album and proclaimed it to be one of the best debuts that I have heard so when his new release fell through my letterbox I wondered how he was going to deal with the difficult second album. Bigger, Blacker Ben opens that difficult second… Continue

I reviewed Samuel James’ first album and proclaimed it to be one of the best debuts that I have heard so when his new release fell through my letterbox I wondered how he was going to deal with the difficult second album. Bigger, Blacker Ben opens that difficult second album. He’s certainly maintained his guitar playing standard and his knack for being a sublime storyteller is still… Continue
