CD: BARRY WARD - Distant Furrows, Pickin' Plowin' & Playin'

BARRY WARD
Distant Furrows, Pickin' Plowin' & Playin'
Wheatfields - Crossing Jordan - Sonrise - Grandpa's Song - God's Perfect Love - Bloodline - Lord I Need You - Harvest In The Fall - My Blood Is In This Land - When I Grow Up - Dust In The Wind - Angel's Heart - Man I Used To Be - Prairie Wind - Statue In The Heat - Young Farmers and Ranchers - Farming Sun Blues - How Great Thou Art
 
Today's my lucky day.  I get to listen to some of the best songwriting and musical recordings I've heard in a long long time.  Barry Ward, and his lovely wife Victoria, make their home on a ranch in Colorado.  This has not prevented him from being a gifted country and western songwriter and recording artist.  My favorite song on this CD is "When I Grow Up" as it demonstrates the very real validity of a beautiful male voice, singing a really beautiful self-written song.  Reminds me that perhaps when Barry was just a young boy, he said to his mother..."Mom, when I grow up, I want to be a songwriter." and his mother promptly replied, "Son, you can't do both, so pick one."  I'm really really glad Barry Ward didn't grow up.  This CD is without a doubt his very best work....ever.  He also, besides that beautiful voice, as so well represented on this same song, has the ability to pick his backing and pick it aptly and beautifully.  Barry plays rhythm guitar, and adds Joe Stephenson on fiddle (which he applies so liberally and beautifully to 'When I Grow Up"), as well as acoustic guitar and bass; Allan Blackwell on cello, guitar and percussion; Ernie Martinez on dobro, clawhammer banjo, acoustic guitar and mandolin; Lewis Mock on harmonica acoustic and electric guitar; Jimmy Lee Robbins on acoustic guitar; Sue Link on fiddle; Jory Lane on cello; and lots of those same folks singing harmonies.  Anyone who likes original and traditional country music can see from this instrumentation line-up that this is the 'real-deal.'  Barry writes about some incredibly important topics on many American's minds these days. What happened to our beautiful past, and what is ahead for us in this tumultuous world we live in today.  Barry posts a warning on his CD cover...."WARNING excessive consumption of this music may result in wavy plow lines, giving up your box seats at the 3i show and trading in the ol' chisel for a new pickup truck."  He doesn't stray far from the ranch does he?  But as an afterthought he adds..."RX prescribed in one large dose taken daily."  That's exactly what I'm doing today, listening to a magnificent male human being that writes and sings his soul.  Totally!  My deepest regrets Barry, for the immense stupidity that exists in America's 'commercial' country music today.  In the meantime, off this wonderful CD goes to the Rural Roots Music Commission for their consumption, and I'm sure it's going to be a big dose.

CD: MIKE JOHNSON - Doggone It I've Written A Sad Song Again

MIKE JOHNSON
Doggone It I've Written A Sad Song Again
Doggone It I've Written A Sad Song Again - The Day Hank Williams Died - Corner of the Bar - Guitar Pickin' Motorcycles Hungry Women - Old Lovesick Fool - Do You Wanna Get Drunk and Fool Around - Isn't Goofy Something At All? - Sittin' In A Truck Stop Down In Georgia - Pain! Pain! Pain! - Chug-A-Lug Another One - Home For Sunday Supper - The Good Part Of A Sad Song
 
Mike Johnson is one of the most amazing songwriters and recording artists I've ever met.  He makes his home in Virginia, right next to Washington DC, and has pursued his life-long love and affection for traditional and classic country music by writing and recording some of the best 'real' country songs I've ever had the pleasure to listen to. A couple of years ago he teamed up with a young college student, James Adelsberger, who is a master at providing the musical backing that is not only unique and original, it's incredibly well done.  What's totally unusual about this pairing is that Mike is a black guy, and James is a white guy.  The very epitomy of racial harmony in its very best form, music.  In this case 'real' country music.  Mike has been writing country music for a whole big bunch of years now, recording it too, and taking the road wherever it takes him, sometimes pretty bumpy.  He's been to our national festival several times, and receives incredible admiration and acceptance there, and wherever he goes.  This CD is a kind of 'new' display of his very good songwriting ability.  James adds a 'just right' backing to everything Mike does.  And, James does this on acoustic and lead guitar, bass, drums, keyboard, mandolin, piano, steel, and ukulele.  They did call in a fiddler, Michael Roman to play that particularly well represented 'true' country music part, and presents it beautifully in "The Day Hank Williams Died."  This is my favorite song on this CD.  James is also a very gifted 'mix' artist.  The final version of any good musical production is what it sounds like in it's creator's ears, that will hopefully sound the same to a non-participant listener, like me, and thousands of others that will get to hear this remarkable presentation.  Is the 'mix' good?  It certainly is, the full poignancy and honesty of that early rural country soul is all here, just as it should be.  The stories in the songs are all here, just as 'real' country music has always been.  The 'topics' of the songs are all here, just as 'real' country music has always been.  A congratulatory salute to Mike Johnson on an artistic work incredibly well done.  For me it is so sad to see this very American musical art style and genre altered so drastically in the commercial music world today....BUT, it's alive and well in this new 'Virginian,' Mike Johnson, and he's not likely to let it die.  Off this one goes to the Rural Roots Music Commission for their observation.  I already have a feeling about this one.  Keep it up Mike, an American 'tradition' is not going to go away if you keep doing what you are doing.  He's been a truck driver in the past, so he knows what 'travelin' is all about, and you'll hear that in another of my favorites "Sittin' In A Truck Stop Down in Georgia."
