"OK. I was late to snap to the Dead Reckoners. I found Kevin Welch almost a decade ago because of his song "Early Summer Rain", incorporating the poetic imagery of painter T.C. Cannon. I should have followed him from that CD into his collaboration with several other Nashville artists and their Dead Reckoning indy label _right away_. But better late than never. Tammy Rogers is one of those artists. I ordered this CD only because I have recently realized that the music of Welch and his group (Keiran Kane!) are as good as it gets. This is a WONDERFUL album. It's not bluegrass, not country...it's not folk, it's something on the "more intelligent" end of all those genres. On first play, you won't hear the clever and the profound nuances of Rogers' voice, her harmonies (w/EmmyLou & Victoria Williams among others), her arrangements. If you feel,on first listen, that the previous reviewer & I are a little too bedazzled with this project, give it another listen or two. It's a gem of an "album". Then check out Kevin Welch, Keiran Kane & Harry Stinson. TRULY American music's best-kept secret."
DRIFT TO THE BACK COUNTRY...
