     This very good acoustic CD was recorded at Rhythmic Vision Studios in Des Moines, Iowa.  First thing I would say to the engineer who mastered it....'please' let the vocals come out front so we can understand every word.  There is some beautiful poetic messages here, unfortunately I could not hear properly all that was being said/sang simply because the mix on the guitars was overpowering the vocals.  Now with that out of the road, here's a remarkable CD of remarkable young people writing and recording some powerful messages.  This is a delightful duo made up of Marc Bailey and Sara Williams living mostly in the Mitchellville, Iowa area.  They describe themselves as someone who sings, plays, and breathes life into dead air.
     They both play acoustic guitar, and the interchange of the chording styles and methods is quite unique.  I would like a little acoustic bass in the process, but that is purely subjective listening, and this duet has their own style already laid out, and they are obviously having a great time blending and melding their strings into a compromise of what two acoustic guitars can do in similar surroundings.  Same holds true for their vocalizing harmonizing.  They pass the lead back and forth with ease, and when they blend their voices together they have a very consummating pleasant sound, sometimes soft and sweet, sometimes very stern and demanding, commanding, recommending.
     This very nice young couple is also very dedicated to the essence of God, and the magnificent gifts bestowed upon us lowly humans.  They keep that delicate relationship in tact throughout this adventure. 
     I like 'young' music, especially if it is acoustic.  I firmly believe that musical instruments are simply the 'method' to set the vocal at it's best interpretation.  This duo performed on the 'church' stage at the annual old-time music convention and festival in LeMars in 2012, and attracted quite a large amount of 'talk' among our regular attendees, most of whom are over the age of 50.  All of this 'talk' was about how well they performed together, and probably more frequently how well they played their Gibson and Martin guitars 'together.'  I'm sure they will be asked back again in 2013, for according to many of the younger attendees at this large acoustic music festival, there is a stage with Marc and Sara's name on it.  Congratulations youngun's for a job well done.

ROBERT DENNIS - Busted Rowels


ROBERT DENNIS - Busted Rowels
 
Spring Dance - Beyond Alone - Real Western Mornin' - Cowhand - Coy - 'Tween My Horse's Ears - Calvin' Blues - Loveswar - Wet Sortin' -  Revel in the Journey
 
     I believe what we have in Robert Dennis is a 'real' cowboy.  He makes his home in South Dakota, and the photos on his CD show him on horseback (at least three different steeds), riding the range, and certainly working the ranch.  Of the ten songs on this CD, six are his own originals.  The other four he co-wrote with some of his cowboy poet friends.  What Robert Dennis does, is take some excellent cowboy poetry and brace it together with some fine old-time guitar focused western melodies. 
     I've always liked the cowboy approach to music, mostly because of its honesty.  Today though, at least with the Western Music Association, you'd best have lots of money to even get 'mentioned' in their very slick, over-produced, over-colored, magazine.  Not a place where I would expect to see Robert Dennis, but I do see him working on the ranch, spending off hours with like-minded friends, swapping stories, songs, tales and details, without all the hullabaloo created around many in show business today.
     Not a lot of instrumentation on this CD, mostly acoustic guitar which I believe Robert is playing, and he allows it to bring his voice forward so we can hear the 'entire' story as he relates 'life on the prairie.'  This is what is so great about today's cowboy and western music makers.  We just had Michael Martin Murphey at our festival in LeMars, Iowa in 2012, and just him, his guitar, and his little daughter's fiddle, absolutely magnetized the audience.  The proverbial 'he had them in the palm of his hand' held more than true at that performance.  Robert Dennis has that same mild appealing ability.  I believe we will have Michael Martin back in LeMars in 2013, and we'd like to extend an invitation to Robert Dennis to come be with us too.
     A 'picture in my memory' is simply one of the many very small poetic images Robert creates throughout this entire CD.  All of his 'memories' become the basis for an entertaining and pleasantly beautiful portrayal of another time, and certainly a different lifestyle from what most urban folks experience today.  He has a nice easy-going voice, attuned to the songs and the poetry he has created.
     I'm going to forward this CD to the Rural Roots Music Commission for 'Western CD of the Year" and see what happens.  Much continued success to Robert Dennis.

MARK BRINE - Folkabilly BlueZgrass


MARK BRINE - Folkabilly BlueZgrass
 
Why I Yodel - Factory Blues - Hey Lil' Girl - Who's Been Diggin' (The Garden Blues) - Springtime, Tennessee - Momma's Tears - IN Between The Raindrops - Somethin' To Cry About - Kid At Heart - Those Lonesome Whistles - Willie (Can You Hear Me?) - Banjo Ringin' - That Old Screendoor Song - The Picture That My Daddy Drew
 
     Here's a remarkable old-time singer that's been around awhile, but still looks like a young dude.  He goes all the way back to performing with Hank Snow on the Grand Ole Opry, and here he is, still creating, writing, producing, singing, and especially 'YODELING' his way through a remarkable old-time hillbilly kind of blue-billy folk grass blue grass kind of music presentation.
     You have to listen to more than one song by Mark Brine to really understand what he's all about.  Yes, one song is not enough, you have to hear more than one.   All of these songs are creations, self-written by Mark Brine, and that's what's so remarkable about this recording artist, he brings incredible originality to every song he presents here, and every one of them has a very 'different' approach and sound incorporated into each and every one of them.
     I really like "Hey Lil' Girl' because of the up-tempo blues sound he creates, and at the same time puts forth a tongue in cheek hint that if this works for her, it sure works for him.  Mark is one very gifted guitarist, and he makes the instrument do what he wants it to, that being lay the background chords down so that other musicians can easily follow. And, he put some exciting gifted musicians working with him.  Tim Roper on violin and fiddle.  I'm sure it's the same instrument, it's just how and what he's playing on it that might make a difference.  Dock Murdock on Dobro with an old timey style sure to make you want to listen to more.  Gary Richard on electric stand-up bass which almost sounds acoustic to me, so that means it's in the right place at the right time at the right level.
     It's Mark Brine's voice that you will remember most of all.  He is all and totally unique.  He don't mind yodeling, especially if it 'benefits' the song, and the first three songs on this CD demonstrate that quite well.  Other songs you still hear him switch to a little falsetto but not quite a yodel, same kind of voice manipulation Michael Nesmith used in some of his best country songs.  That's kind of who Mark Brine reminds me of, a really country Michael Nesmith. Who's Michael Nesmith you say.  Oh, you'll find out, but hopefully you'll go find this Mark Brine CD somewhere and then pursue that.
     In all my many tours performing in Europe, where they constantly look for the unique, the extraordinary, the original, I would hope those producers and promoters that still function in that realm of appreciation would find a way to not only listen to this remarkable creative person, but find a way to share him with their audiences in Europe. 'I'm walking walking in between the raindrops waiting for a sunny day.'  UhHuh, don't you wish you could have written that?
