CD: STOMPIN' TOM - Kic' Along

STOMPIN' TOM
Kic' Along
The Hockey Song - To It & At It - The Coal Boat Song - Margo's Cargo - Luke's Guitar - Muckin' Slushers (A Damn Good Song For A Miner) - Handy-Man Blues (The I Don't Know How To Fix The Damn Thing Blues) - Song Of The Irish Moss - Wreck Of The Tammy Annie - Black Donnelly's Massacre - Jenny Donnelly - Tribute To Wilf Carter - Zakuska Polka - Red River Jane - The Consumer - Muk Luk Shoo - Okanagan Okee - Rita MacNeil (A Tribute) - Don Messer Story - Believe In Your Country
 
This is without a doubt one of the most 'tongue in cheek' CD's I've ever listened to.  Stompin' Tom is well known in Canada, mostly because of these 'funny' songs.  However he's a very good vocalist.  He has a kind of distinguished voice with a lot of individuality.  "Nangy twangy nangy twangy twangy a tweedle another dang twang."  Well, how can you beat that for an introduction to "Luke's Guitar" a pretty long 'story' in song, but like nearly everything Tom has done on this CD, it's very amusing and humorous.  I would like to think perhaps he's from Newfoundland, since he mentions this several times in this 20-song CD.  Some of the songs are recorded in a studio, and some of them are performed 'live' so it's hard to determine if the same musicians are participating in all the offerings.  Tom is a very clever writer, and specializes in humor in his songs, and from some of the audience response on the 'live' presentations, they enjoy it very much.  He's also a history-writer as the song "Wreck Of The Tammy Annie" describes, but it is definitely not a 'funny' song.  Neither is "Black Donnelly's Massacre."  I kind of like this historical documentation of events from the past, even if it is a bit long.  This is how we keep some of the legends and stories alive through the centuries, Lord knows commercial music doesn't want to have anything to do with that.  I really like the fiddle on "Zakuska Polka" and the melody line is really neat.  All in all, the historian's viewpoint is still alive and well with Stompin' Tom from Canada

CD: TED & ALICE MILLER - Small Talk

TED & ALICE MILLER
Small Talk
Small Talk - Away - Birds and Bees - No Kindness - Settle Down - Every Time - Somewhere With You - Drive - Fly The Kite - Sweat On Me
 
I've listened to some other music by this delightful couple, and this album is all self-composed originals, and I find it very interesting.  They're on the cutting-edge of 'Americana' on this CD, however some of their previous work has been very acoustic and very early country and rural in style.  Lots of electric rhythm guitar on this one.  I'm always surprised at the very good recording quality coming out of the upper Midwest.  Certainly much better than the pre-disposed and pre-determined 'sound' that emanates from Nashville these days.  Ted and Alice did this recording at the Pony Creek Studios in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.  I'm impressed, the man on the board knows what he (or she) is doing.  The mix is precise, and right where it needs to be.  The blending of Ted and Alice's voices, mandatory that the mix be good, is also precise and right where it needs to be. It's also very interesting to me to find such good musicians working in a Midwest studio that are so very good at what they do. Ted plays lead and rhythm guitar as well as lap steel and bass.  He does all of this extremely well.  He doesn't let the 'drums' lead the beat or the sound, he lets that happen in the sound he produces from his guitar.  I'm pleasantly surprised to hear the drums in the background instead of drowning out the vocalist.  In a lot of 'new' Americana music the drums usually wind up way out front.  Not so on this unique album.  Super good mix here.  Alice has a very distinguished and pretty voice, and covers lead, harmony, and backing vocals with a very nice lady's touch.  Chad Konrad is the cool drummer I'm referring to, and he also plays keyboard.  Carly Christensen on harmonica adds a finishing touch here and there, also well mixed and shows up in just right places. "No Kindness" fetches some super nice acoustic guitar and slide guitar.  Very original and very entertaining and very good. What Ted is writing sounds very personal to me, but that's where good writers are usually coming from, writing about what they actually know about.  He reminds me a bit of a young Hank Williams, writing what he feels, writing what he knows, writing what he wants, writing from his heart, writing with passion, writing with truth, writing with ability.  Isn't it amazing how young talents, with the gift of music, find this on their own?  Five stars for Americana here.

Hank Williams, Sr. and the Liberty Theater

This past weekend marks the anniversary of the death of 'real' country music superstar, Hank Williams, Sr., and the Liberty Theater in Eunice, Louisiana, is going to remember by hosting a two and a half hour Hank Williams music show.  Sheila and I once owned ten acres very near Eunice, and was pleased to have Happy Valley June Campbell and her husband Jerry visit us there.  We took them to the Liberty Theater way back then.  Normally, it's a very traditional Cajun music show, but the one this weekend will consist of Hank's songs in chronological order, revealing how he evolved into a constantly better songwriter.  He recorded 35 singles that placed in the top-10, including eleven that were number one.

"Lisa Marie" and "Hound Dog" will be offered for sale

Elvis Presley's pair of personal jets "Lisa Marie" and "Hound Dog" will be offered for sale by Juliens Auctions, located here in California in Beverly Hills.  They are expected to sell for from ten to fifteen million dollars.  Since the jets do not belong to Graceland, in Memphis, Tennessee, but are on a lease agreement, with the owners whose identity has not been disclosed, expires at the end of April.  At that time, whoever buys them will also have an option to purchase several acres adjacent to Graceland to display the jets, independent of the Presley Museum.
