RED PINE TIMBER COMPANY —SORRY FOR THE GOOD TIMES (Goldrush Records)

 

www.redpinetimberco.com

Red Pine Timber Company are from Perth in Scotland, and with eight members it is a big band in more ways than one. From the off the ensemble meet the task face on as they deliver the rousing ode “If You Want To”, and with lead vocals shared between songwriter (acoustic, electric guitar) front man, Gavin J D Munro and Katie Whittaker the roving style of the band’s music could not be better showcased. Pure Americana....as country, rock, pop and folk are forged into one. With  little change in general tone the fire is stoked, not only by guitars and drums but horns, and guest pedal steel guitar (Stuart Nisbett, Aaron Blake) as the likes of stirring ballads “The Same Kind Of Pretty” (that gives mention to Billie Holiday) and with Whittaker in top form, heartfelt ode “Put Down The Bottle” waft through the air. Soaked in the bitter sweet sound of pedal steel, horns, piano and harmony vocals a mournful feel is present. 

One of the finest attributes of RPTC is the adventure felt due to them them not holding back, as they pick up the ball and run with it. No better or more thrilling demonstration than which is “Cutting You Loose”, with a little imagination and you can see Emmylou Harris and her Hot Band belting it out back in 1977.  Caution is thrown to the wind as country meets old-fashioned rock’n’roll! Follow that. On slowing things down, nicely so as Munro in the song requests another drink before moving on. 

Others of note include energetic piece “For The Angels” as more brass and finely woven harmony vocals figure. While with an infectious feel, the gospel-ish “Get Right With You” has the whole ensemble become involved big time as they perform a song that would be an ideal show closer. The penultimate cut is followed by measured ode, “Dry Your Eyes” and though not a barnburner it sits well along likewise tempered piece “Hollow Tree” and with spare imagery and well-played borderland’s (as in Mexican; not English-Scottish) acoustic guitar, “Tracks In the Snow” (Whittaker lead vocals).
