CD: GRAHAM RODGER We're Gonna Be Alright


GRAHAM RODGER
We're Gonna Be Alright
 
We're Gonna Be Alright - The First Lady Of Country - The Almond Tree - A Hat Like That - The Barcaldine Cup - Relief - From Banjo's Pen - Guilty Or Not Guilty - Unsuitably Dressed - A Small Pain in His Chest - The Touch Of The Master's Hand - A Little Irish Mother - Said Hanrahan
 
It amazes me how very 'real country' CD's come to me.  This particular project was sent to me by Michael T. Wall, who makes his home in Newfoundland, but he travels and performs in Australia a great deal.  One of the artists he met there recently is none other than this incredibly 'country' artist, Graham Rodger.  Michael sent this CD for review.  It's not Graham's newest work, it's album number eight out of 11 that he has recorded.  I really like the songs, but more importantly Graham's intense country voice, right on, as well as the music backing.  There are some up-tempo songs that take the listener on a ride into Australia, without a doubt.  Mr. Rodger was rural born, which to me gives him the upper lift to keep it country.  He specializes in high quality Australian ballads, of which there are many, not the least being those from the very gifted Slim Dusty, one of Graham's heroes. There is one super good song on this CD, entitled "The Almond Tree" which is an original by Graham.  It has already won the Australian National Songwriters Award.  It is one of many original diamonds.  It is immediately followed by another great original "A Hat Like That" which is a terrific story song, exactly as country music should be, and as Australian country music is.  I really like the uptempo style of Graham, he is an entertainer as well as a great songwriter, vocalist, and performer.  Proof of this is obvious in the many 'people's choice' awards he has won at Tamworth, Australia's largest country music gathering.  Most common is his 'Male Vocalist of the Year' award, which in Australia is still done in the proper style, not a bought and paid for commodity as it is treated in American awards these days.   "Relief" is a kind of "Ghost Riders In The Sky" approach to rain coming to a much needed parched land.  Super well done.  Nearly all of Graham's songs are stories set to poetry and song.  I thought perhaps I'd hear a banjo on the song "From Banjo's Pen," but that's not the case, Banjo is actually an Australian writer, a pensman, and a super story.  "A Small Pain In His Chest" has a nice accordion-like intro, and another great story about a battle with over powering bodily attack.  Super good story teller to be sure.  I'm going to send this CD along to the Rural Roots Music Commission.  I know what they are going to do about this story teller's amazing talent, whether Graham wants to pursue their decision waits to be seen.  Graham is at grahamroder1@gmail.com, and he recorded this remarkable work for Austrak Music, 571 Old Gympie Road, Paterson 4570, Queensland, Australia.
 

CD: IRMA YOUNG God Took A Chance On Me

IRMA YOUNG
God Took A Chance On Me
 
God Took A Chance on Me - Holy Wind - The Latter Rain - Broken Pieces - I Know He Is Jehovah - All Heaven Knows - You Can't Play Hide And Seek With God - Holy Hands - I Am A Messenger - Sprintime In Heaven - Jesus Lit My Candle - Lord God Almighty - The Stone Was Rolled Away
 
After a long weekend of hard work, emcee work, cleaning the theater work, promotion work, cleaning up after the rain work, and all such stuff, it was a wonderful experience for me to sit down, relax, and listen to some super terrific gospel music.  Old time gospel music, just the way I like it.  Irma Young is not a 'young' artist.  She has had a few years to make up her mind what kind of music she wants to sing, as well as write.  Every one of these wonderfully inspiring songs was written by Irma.  The first two are nice up-tempo songs, you can't help tapping your foot, that's bound to happen, but more importantly, she writes and sings about things to 'uplift' the listener.  Great musicians helped her in the studio, don't know who they are, but they are darn good.  It's her words that are especially appreciated, she speaks out about her relationship with Jesus Christ.  She doesn't mince words, she says it exactly as it should be said.  She says she is a 'messenger, a child of the holy seed.'  She means it, she's here to let you know what the Christian experience is all about, and I'm with her one hundred percent.  We don't get this kind of 'honesty' in music much anymore, but here's the big 'catch.'  Irma is not only a terrific writer, she's also a terrific vocalist.  She worked with a good studio, they knew how to handle her voice, how to mix the final draft to keep her voice as the center post to what she records. Not sure where Irma is these days, or if she is even able to make the trip to LeMars, but this CD is definitely going to the Rural Roots Music Commission for "Traditional Country Gospel CD of the Year."  I don't believe I've listened to anyone in recent years that would be more deserving of this honor
Irma is at irmaj@comcast.net for communication purposes.
