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…

LINCOLN DURHAM—THE SHOVEL (VS) THE HOWLING BONES (Self-released)

 

http://www.lincolndurham.com

Unrelenting, raw-boned, full of thrusting surges of powerful playing and impassioned vocals The Shovel (vs) The Howling Bones is a chip off the old block. The block I am talking about is the young Lincoln Durham’s mentor, Texas-based singer-songwriter, producer and recording act Ray Wylie Hubbard. And, to cap it all…

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!

 

Country fans will of course also have fond memories…

THE YOUNG ‘UNS —WHEN OUR GRANDATHER’S SAID NO (Navigator records)

 

www.navigatorrecords.co.uk 

Here we have traditional, English folk music possessing a rare sharp as a tack feel that transcends the norm. In keeping to the age-old style and tight as a drum vocal harmonies the trio of Sean Cooney (songwriter), David Eagle (keyboards, piano accordion) and Michael (guitar) simultaneously bring to the table a feeling…

MIKE SEEGER —MIKE SEEGER (Vanguard)

www.acerecords.com 

Mike Seeger (1933-2009) was a wonderful exponent of old timey traditional music, and as years rolled by lived and breathed the values of the historic Appalachians (that run through Virginia, North Carolina, West Virginia, Kentucky and up as far as Maryland and Washington DC) and the source of the tradition. England, Ireland and Scotland. Like Alan…

ARTHUR ALLIGOOD —ONE SILVER NEEDLE (New Song Recordings)

www.newsong-music.com 

Tennessee singer-songwriter, Arthur Alligood has a disarming style that like the best of his profession reels the listener in. Such is his discerning lyrics which through his simple melodies they are drawn like a moth to the flame; one just can’t help become entangled. 

 

One Silver Needle is produced by Mikal Blue and has an…

JERRY DOUGLAS —TRAVELER (Sugar Hill Records)

http://www.sugarhillrecords.com

Jerry Douglas' varied and eclectic taste (yes, he is the same guy whom with Scottish fiddler Aly Bain co-hosts BBC4’s Transatlantic Sessions) in part is what keeps his music so amazingly, sharp plus, he has a number of guests join him. As people ranging from Dr. John (piano), Bela Fleck (banjo), Sam Bush (harmony…

http://www.jasmine-records.co.uk

 

 

When it comes to great and hugely influential old country (and gospel) harmony singing acts Charlie and Ira Louvin are optimy of the words; great, awesome and sublime when it comes to describing their talent.
