CD: ALEX SMITH - Hamilton County

Alex Smith is a young guy, 22 years old.  Makes his home in New York State's Adirondack Mountains, a place full of rivers, lakes, mountains, villages, and wilderness, all existing side by side.  Wepecket Records, a Massachusetts based independent label, was smart enough to pick this young man's recordings up.  Why?  Because this guy knows what 'real' music is.  Said best by Dan Berggren, an Adirondack folksinger..."These songs of Alex Smith stretch the expectation of what fresh, new music can say about ancient hills, the communities they hold, and their stories."  THAT'S THE SECRET!  The 'stories' they hold.  Alex is a wonderful poetic writer that captures the words full of meaning, matching it with creative music that creeps quietly into the past at the same time it dances with the present, and sneaks a peek at the future.  Some absolutely wonderful musical expression on this CD, no doubt about that, all of the music makers are tuned in to Alex, and they are doing him fine justice.  I was nabbed from the very first song, nice up-tempo, incredible picking, here's just one verse from a very nice 'story' song.  "There's a road, it carried lumber in another life.  Now it's cracked and heaved, the frost it cut through it like a knife."  See what I mean, what he says with just a few words, a whole big real to life STORY in just a few precious words. I like everything Alex is doing with his writing, his melodies, and the way he 'git's er done' as we sometimes say here in the cornfields of Iowa.  Let me repeat, for it's true with every song.  He lets his music and words creep quietly into the past.  Some of his work is very historical, iron mines and all.  He lets his words dance with the present, cause he has some very personal words to sing to us, and certainly he sneaks a peek into the future as any prophet should do.  This CD won't have any trouble getting some recognition, especially from the Rural Roots Music Commission. I don't always list the music makers, but these players are special:  Alex does his own vocals and plays guitar.  Dylan Rice does some back-up vocals as well as mandolin and electric guitar.  Jake Brillhart is on the violin, and Don Barry is on the Bass.   Boy are they in tune with each other.  A good job well done.

CD: ROGER TIBBS - The Way It Used To Be

 ROGER TIBBS
The Way It Used To Be
 
Stop The World and Le Me Off - My Shoes Keep Waling Back to You - Irma Jackson - Crying Time - Mansion Over the Hilltop - Betcha My Heart - Send A Message To My Heart - Daddy Frank - City Lights - Mother - Gold Watch and Chain - Heartaches by the Number - This Little Light of Mine - The Way It Used To Be
 
     I'm very glad that Roger Tibbs, one of my most favorite singers from New Zealand, cut this record in Texas using the studios of Tex Schutz.  Roger has an extremely good voice, extremely sincere, extremely honest, and he needed some 'real' country backing for this album, and he got it.  The selection of songs for a New Zealander to sing is also very interesting to me.  He picked some of the best writers in the business that cemented their reputation with great songwriting.  Merle Haggard, Bonnie Owens, Bill Anderson, Hank
Snow, Harlan Howard, and even A. P. Carter.  How could you go wrong with those kind of songs.  The next best the producer Tex Schutz did on this session was put a remarkably good fiddle (Mark Kalson) on most of the songs.  The rhythm guitar is acoustic (sometimes a little bassy and boomy on my player which doesn't have large speakers), and that makes a tremendous difference when you are trying to capture the 'realness' of old-time country.  We're kind of in the traditional vein now, and you hear it throughout this remarkable production.  Tex also adds some appropriate Dobro and mandolin, making this very unlike a bluegrass CD, but still utilizing the same songs that bluegrass players and fans alike adore.  Best acoustic lead picking I believe is on "Daddy Frank" another Merle Haggard song.  Roger Tibbs magnificent voice holds true to the course on the entire project.  He sings with a kind of honesty that is hard to find in today's top-40 country music world.  If good yodeling is what you like, Roger Tibbs is probably the best one on this planet these days.  "The Way It Used To Be" has some exceptional yodeling on it.  Roger makes his home in New Zealand, however he has been in Australia for some time being close to one of his children who is sick there.  We would certainly welcome him back at any time, especially to be with us as we celebrate our 40th year doing our festival in LeMars, Iowa.  This CD is now eligible for Rural Roots Music Commission consideration, so lets see what happens.
