JOHNNY CASH —AMERICAN VI: AIN’T NO GRAVE (Lost Highway / American Recordings)

www.losthighwayrecords.com



Johnny Cash may now be dead and buried six years but there is still previously unreleased music coming out, and it isn’t mismatched stuff rather like the sticker claims but, Johnny’s Final Studio Album!

By the time the recording was made his health was failing and voice becoming deeper and on occasions world weary as a result, yet through the production work of Rick Rubin and John’s honesty his… Continue

BILL PRICE—WITH THE EYE OF A SKEPTIC (Grass Magoops Records)

www.billprice.info



Singer-songwriter Bill Price has a fine eye for detail, and likewise an ear for a good melody. When you put them together as on With The Eye Of A Sceptic... alongside the help of a fine cast of musicians everything you could wish for falls into place, perfectly.



Price reminds me of another mighty fine acoustic musician, singer-songwriter by the name of Chuck Brodsky of whom I will speak of in detail at…

PAUL MASON —PAUL MASON (Self-released) EP

www.myspace.com/paulmassonmusic

Here we have the debut EP from Baltimore, Maryland singer-songwriter Paul Mason who has a deep sense of feeling to his lyrics and a voice that is smoky, torn at the edges and of a kind that has you soon become totally lost in his superbly crafted lyrics.

Although there are only five tracks on the ‘My Girl From Baltimore’ fronted… Continue

MARTY ROBBINS —HAVE I TOLD YOU LATELY THAT I LOVE YOU? / I’VE GOT A WOMAN’S LOVE (Hux Records)

www.huxrecords.com

Another vintage 2-on-1 original albums from Hux and, who better than them who already have Gene Watson, Ed Bruce, Tom T Hall, Faron Young and Gene Vincent among the acts they have featured to now add the late country icon, Marty Robbins to their catalogue.

Sure, he had made more traditional and western styled collections but here we have Robbins the stylist and a whole lot more. Both albums are retrospective…

KIERAN GOSS —I’LL BE SEEING YOU (Cog Communications)

www.kierangoss.com

www.myspace.com/kierangoss

Kieran Goss’s music isn’t of the kind that knocks you sideways or hits you full in the face, but music that draws you in. The kind that has the listener do the leg work and go search for it’s deeper meaning. Hence, the likes of his songs ‘One Boy’s Treasure’ (that lists the brilliant Beth Nielsen Chapman as one of the writers) and sad-eyed…

LAURIE LEWIS —BLOSSOMS (Spruce and Maple Music)

www.laurielewis.com

www.spruceandmaplemusic.com



Boy, oh boy, what a beautiful album this is! From the stunning opening a cappella piece ‘How Can I Keep From Singing?’ the benchmark for the album is set to never waver. Although the final track, ‘Sirens’ isn’t something I‘m too enamoured with. However, the music previous to it features a feast of good stuff that borders on…

CHRISTINE PRIMROSE —MO CHEIST AM FEAR BAN (My Darling Is The Fair One) (Temple Records)

www.templerecords.co.uk

Scottish traditional award winning singer Christine Primrose from the village of Carloway on the west side Isle Of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides was singing and recording as far back as 1982 in Gaelic long before it became semi-fashionable.

November last year was the recipient of the ‘Gaelic Singer Of The Year Award’ at Scotland’s Traditional Music Awards and as a result Temple records have issued a single ‘Mo… Continue

JASON & THE SCORCHERS —HALCYON TIMES (Jerkin’ Crocus Records)

www.jasonandthescorchers.com Whenever Jason Ringenberg and his band make a record or take to the stage one thing is for sure, the level of energy, entertainment and standard of songwriting will be high. A wonderful story-teller, Jason and the Scorchers were born out of punk, cow-punk as they called it then and, now after a sabbatical the boys Jason and founder member Warner E.…

JOAN BAEZ—HOW SWEET THE SOUND (RAZOR & TIE) DVD / CD

www.joanbaez.com www.razorandtie.com Joan Baez and the word folk music could just as easily be found under the same listing, whether it were in the Oxford dictionary or annals of folk music. Since she is and always will be the queen of folk. An American icon, Baez unlike some was able to mix folk music and politics without doing unlimited damage to her career. Once you have heard what Joan has got to say…

THE WIYOS —BROKEN LAND BELL (Self-released)

www.THEWIYOS.COM Hmmm now this is a mite interesting. The Wiyos play a brand of music you could soon become addicted to, and as far as I know there is no cure. Their music is varied, and difficult to place a finger on as various influences have been absorbed by the quartet and it could be argued they do try and cover too many. The Brooklyn-based ensemble started out in 2002 as a trio, and have since gone from strength to strength as they…

CAROLINE HERRING —GOLDEN APPLES OF THE SUN (Signature Sounds)

CAROLINE HERRING —GOLDEN APPLES OF THE SUN (Signature Sounds)

www.signaturesounds.com

www.carolineherring.com



Singer-songwriter Caroline Herring is a worthy talent, and though lauded by many in the past I have always thought her vocals to be lightweight. However, my prejudices have in the main been pushed aside through her work on this beautifully presented album. Vocally, on… Continue
