Flatt Lonesome – Flatt Lonesome Too (Album Review)

Flatt Lonesome had a great debut CD. It is very hard to come out with a good follow up to a great CD like theirs In fact, the second CD is always a hard item for a group to put out.Well, Too does not disappoint, they sound even tighter with all new material. Their Dobro player Mike really sounds great, coming out with some real melodious playing. Both Buddy's vocals and guitar playing have improved. This group plays with real great dynamics, not going full tilt all of the time, but doing some…See More

The Charlie Daniels Band - "Off The Grid - Doin' It Dylan" (Album Review)

Well, This is different for The Charlie Daniels Band. Some of the First sessions work on the guitar ,that Daniels did when He moved to Nashville was for Bob Dylan's "Nashville Skyline" Album. Charlie was just supposed to fill in for a day for a guitar player who did not show up. Unfortunately for the guitarist that did not show up, Dylan wanted Charlie to keep playing, not the guy who didn't show up. In fact ,Charlie kept playing for him on Dylan's next two albums done in…

"Flatt Lonesome" - Flatt Lonesome (Album Review)

These young folk have formed one of the best sounding traditional bluegrass groups around. If you watch the youtube above, you will get an idea of their talent level plus the love they have for their craft. The vocals  are built around 3 sibling and they harmonize so well together. Plus they play their instruments so well. Siblings Kelsi Robertson Harrigill, Charli Robertson and brother Buddy Robertson handle vocals plus Kelsi plays all mandolin, Charli plays fiddle and Buddy plays…

Irene Kelley – Pennsylvania Coal (Album Review)

Veteran Nashville songwriter Irene Kelley and small town native of Pennsylvania has a new singer-songwriter bluegrass CD coming out in the early part of February, 2014. This is all acoustic music produced by Mark Fain. Kelley has written hits for lots of other artists.

This CD is a tribute to her coal mining grandfather who was a coalminer in Pennsylvania. This is no ordinary Bluegrass CD, I mean it is loaded with some of the truly best talent on the Nashville music scene…

The Grascals – "When I Get My Pay" (Album Review)

Great material, great playing, a little bit more contemporary sounding than previous CDs. With a great first video, "The American Pickers", which has the help of Dierks Bentley on vocals and guitar and Mike Wolfe ,from the show, the video is their best. Kristin Scott Benson makes her vocal debut as a Grascal on this CD. The song "Are You Up For Getting down Tonight ?" is a slow ballad, that has a real acoustic pop sound to it, with no banjo, has a killer melody ,sticks in your…

Mike Aiken – "Almost Christmas" (Single Review)

Well, this is the second Christmas song that I have already reviewed this season. Mindy Smith has already released a five song EP last month. Mike has a really nice Video built around his song "Almost Christmas", which is a song that he wrote. It is an acoustic song which is very well done, The video is based around him singing in a decorated area, a train rolling down the snowy tracks, and him walking around the winter streets with his guitar, Mike Aiken is what I think of when you say…

The Grascals – Sellersville Theatre (Sellersville, PA – Oct. 24, 2013)

Last week, a good friend of mine and I went up to Sellersville to see one of my favorite Bluegrass groups, The Grascals.

I have been listening to them for quite some time, but never got the chance to see them in concert. They put on quite a show, looking  a bit tired as they had just driven 2 days from Nashville for the show. They started out with a very strong version of "Mystery Train", which is a cover song that they did a strong version of. I noticed that Jeremy Abshire…

EP review: Mindy Smith – Snowed In

Snowed In is a five song EP, that Smith is releasing at the end of this month. This will be ten years since Mindy began her journey as a singer- songwriter almost exactly ten years ago, she already was a songwriter for a company in Nashville. She has released four full CDs during that time from the emotion laden "One Moment More" in 04 to "Long Island Shores" in 06, to her first Christmas Album "My Holiday" in 07 and the more pop sounding "Stupid Love" in 09 ,all on…

"Flying" - Darin and Brooke Aldridge - A Review

Darin and Brooke Aldridge have put out a CD in my opinion that is refreshing. To quote Jim Lauderdale , he says "Darin and Brooke bring tradition to today and today to tradition". This couple sings so well together, their harmonies are just uncanny. I call this CD a mood changer, I like to listen to it with breakfast, they use different songwriters including their own member Becky Buller.

I'm listening to a song I love called "Trying To Make Clocks Slow Down", by Bill Whyte…

PR Release - Webster Pr


Country outlaw Waylon Jennings was working on a new batch of recordings right before he died 10 years ago, and those sessions are at the heart of a final studio collection to be released in September, “Goin’ Down Rockin’: The Last Recordings of Waylon Jennings."

In the studio, he had been working with longtime bassist Robby Turner, but they had recorded only Jennings’ vocals and guitar, and Turner’s bass, with plans to flesh them out with additional instrumentation. Jennings died Feb. 13, 2002 at age 64 of diabetes.

Recently Turner went back to those recordings and brought in former Jennings cohorts -- guitarist Reggie Young, drummer Richie Albright and singer, songwriter and Jennings’ former tourmate Tony Joe White -- to add the sounds Jennings and Turner originally discussed.

Of the dozen songs on “Goin’ Down Rockin',” 11 were written by Jennings, the 12th song being White’s title track. The recordings, slated for release on Sept. 11, have never previously been available to the public.

"Waylon knows he's surrounded by friends and all that hear this will feel as if they know Waylon in all his authenticity,” said his widow, singer-songwriter Jessi Colter, in a statement with the news of the album’s release.

“To me, this is classic Waylon music every bit as good as his '70s classics, but his singing bears a vulnerable and deeply personal touch,” said Mike Jason, senior vice president of retail at Saguaro Road Records, which is putting out the album in conjunction with Time Life Records. “Waylon still has many fans, but with these recordings I’m confident that we’ll introduce him to a new generation in the same way that Johnny Cash’s last recordings found him an entirely new audience.”

Jim - Thanks for reading and for your compliment. I had not heard about a new Waylon release. Will keep an eye out for it. I am moments away from posting Part 6, the final installment in the Waylon article/remembrance.

Hi Jim,

I saw your comment and that you are in Abington. I'm right up the road in Hatboro and am also kind of lamenting not going to see Further Saturday night; next year definitely; they will probably tour in the fall or spring but the Mann is such a great venue I hope they play there again.

Hi Jim,

Thanks so much for the feedback.

I think you would actually find a big difference in sound on your home system as the sound is recorded multi-track and mixed by a studio here before being merged with the video. I can send you one of the shows as an example.

Yes, there's a rotating house band, members of Rocket 88 and Mayhem String Band (either as their full bands or mixed). They start each show with the theme song and a couple others.

Some of the best electric guitar from the shows would be George McConnell, Eric Deaton (backing Shannon McNally), and Robert Turan (backing Tate Moore).

Thanks again, and glad you did find some features you liked.

Thanks Jim. Good to hear from you. Just got back from playin a show amd that song is really getting better live;) Hope you're well!

Hi Jim! Good to hear from you. Well maybe I used the wrong word when I said "releasing" a new single before. I don't have a publicist at this time so I am doing it all on my own and I decided to just give away The Ballad of June Bug Lee." I felt as though that song was a gift so I should give it away. In the future though, I am thinking of recording the song, making a live video of it at Kulak's and sending them out together. I THINK I can get singles put up for sale on CDBABY too which means it will be on itunes also. I just don't think people are buying CD's anymore...do you? What are your thoughts on something like this? A lot of my colleagues are releasing singles and down-loadable EPs instead of full length printed CD's. I was also thinking about those download cards to sell at live shows.
This is all very unfortunate I think because I grew up with LP's and all of their glorious wonders!! I love the idea of a full length CD that has a flow and an emotion all it's own..I am sorry that is being lost too.
I would love to hear your thoughts on how to get people to enjoy your music one single at a time.
