Synopsis

Album Description
The 'Axe' is back and this time with an album of his takes on country classics. Recorded in 1995 on Liberty Nashville, but never released, composer, arranger, and producer David Axelrod decided, characteristically, to reveal a side of a popular musical form, in this case country music, that no one else had ever conceived of, let alone heard. The results are jarring to say the least, but equally compelling. Axe used three country standards, 'I Fall to Pieces', 'Help Me Make It Through the Night', and 'Always on My Mind', along with a Garth Brooks hit, 'Standing Outside of the Fire', and re-conceptualizes all the popular notions about what country music is and is not. Stateside. 2003.
