A Spectacular Album You Should Feel Lucky to Own

"The late, great Steeplejack was one of the many players in the early to mid-90s Minneapolis music scene. Do a google search, and you may only find one article concerning their demise (possibly my blog as well), but for those who followed this band, the memories live on.
Andy Sullivan and Ben Connelly were the driving forces behind a band that was described as alt-country, pop-rock, and several other adjectives that never quite fit. What they were was a band that implemented a banjo seamlessly into a pop song (often as the featured instrument, as with "Panning for Gold") without seeming gimmicky (and well before O Brother Where Art Thou). "Don't Break No Hearts" showed plaintive songwriting that crafted a song best companioned with bourbon and regret. If there were justice in the musical world, the irresistible "Albert Lea" would have been a hit.
Add this to your collection, and thank me later."
