TOMMY LEWIS —SILVER & STONE (Self-Released)

 

www.tommylewis.net

 

Texas singer-songwriter Tommy Lewis’ music is of the kind we could do with a whole lot more of filtering through. Warmed in pedal steel, fiddle, lead guitar and more it has a wonderful buoyancy. His blending of country with acoustic blues on the opening track “Salt Water Wine” holds the…

www.loosemusic.com

 

Formerly of the band, Old Crow Medicine Show, singer-songwriter Gill Landry’s latest, and no longer brand new album Love Rides A Dark Horse finds him in reflective mood. Often sombre, Landry is the kind of writer and recording act who creates material that creeps up on…

DUANE ALLMAN —THE LEGEND AND THE LEGACY (Humphead) 2CDs

 

www.humpheadcountry.com

 

Thirty-six tracks decorate this compilation, and with one jaw dropping display on guitar, and Duane Allman wasn’t only a master on slide but he could also squeeze more out of a guitar standard. He raised the bar a level few, even now few have been able to obtain, and to think…

LANGHORNE SLIM —LOST AT LAST VOL.1 (Dualtone Records)

 

Langhorne Slim is one of those artists who, live, is a captivating performer. To capture this on disc is a difficult task, and though on first listen I felt this was potently true, my stance has since softened. He is good on disc too! Whether as good as live, I would need to deliberate more on Lost At Long Last, Vol 1 (his sixth full-length release) as…

ROY DRUSKY —SMOOTH COUNTRY: THE MERCURY RECORDINGS (2CDs)

 

www.humpheadcountry.com 

 

50 songs no less adorn this compilation, and though Drusky was a crooner, the Perry Como of country music he still owned in the hearts of many traditionalists. Even though he was no honky tonk, sawdust floor country act, Atlanta, Georgia-born knew a good song when he heard it. He…

THE NOVEL IDEAS —THE NOVEL IDEAS (Self-Released)

www.thenocelideas.com

 

Massachusetts country folk quartet, The Novel Ideas possess a refreshing approach, as the first half of the self-titled album, The Novel Ideas vies between slow moving ballads to thrusting compositions.

 

On utilising additional fiddle (Eva Walsh),…

JEFF CROSBY—POSTCARD FROM MAGDALENA (At The Helm Records)

 

www.jeffcrosbymusic.com

 

Americana singer-songwriter Jeff Crosby (Idaho-raised) is a powerful and intelligent act. Able to tug at one’s heart and ease into one’s thinking at a heartbeat. Lyrically hooky “Best $25 I Ever Spent” comes rushing through the gates like an animal fleeing, an attacker…
