CD: SQUEEZIN' STEVE - I Can Hear My Mother Calling

SQUEEZIN' STEVE
I Can Hear My Mother Calling
Spanish Two Step - I Can Hear My Mother Calling - Old Log Cabin For Sale - The Blind Boy - I Haven't Seen Mary In Years - My Harbour Castle Home - Daughter Nell - Wabash Cannonball - Farewell To Nova Scotia - Will You Love Me When I Am Old And Feeble - Ghost Of Bras D'Or - Fade Love - May You Never Be Alone Like Me - The Rose In Her Hair - Lonesome For Newfoundland - Isle of Newfoundland - Loss Of The Marion - Over the Waves
 
As many know, I like old-time music, especially old-time country music as much or more than I do modern country music which isn't very country anymore.  For that reason I take a particular liking to those who still play the old songs and tunes, and when they do it on a button accordion it's even better.  Squeezin' Steve is from Canada, Ontario I believe, and his penchant for the old time songs on button accordion is incredibly good.  It's so much fun to hear it the old way.  His accordion playing is immaculate, but he also sings some of those old favorites, and though he's not a Nashville singer, he's just like someone performing and entertaining on the back porch, the real source of real country music.   My favorite old-time country song has to be the "Wabash Cannonball" and Steve does a remarkable job not only playing this great old-time authentic country song on his accordion, he also sings it really well. He follows this nice up-tempo song with "Farewell to Nova Scotia" a kind of sad song full of old-time memories and heartfelt sorrow. "Faded Love" is another traditional song he plays extremely well on the button accordion, and does it as an instrumental, sounding very old-timey and very sincere.  Steve closes this very nice listening experience with another great old-time classic "Over The Waves."  How cool!  Recorded at the Erinwood Studios, Steve is joined by Gerald Companion on guitar; Brian Emon on bass; Archery Hatchey on keyboard; and Sal Norguera on drums, all very accomplished old-time music makers.  I got this CD from Michael T Wall for review, and it's a delight to listen to this great music.  I'm going to forward it to the Rural Roots Music Commission, but I doubt they will take it under consideration for their CD of the year awards, there is no way to communicate with Squeezin' Steve, no address, no telephone number, no e-mail, so that makes for a difficult consideration, still I wish there was a way to communicate with Squeezin' Steve, I know I would have main stage time for him IF there was a way to communicate, and IF the Rural Roots folks picks his CD for any of their awards.

CD: ROD BRANDT - No Partikla Theme

ROD BRANDT
No Partikla Theme
Crows Upon The Roof - Drunk and Disorderly - Ladies of the Road - Back Home to Hawaii - I Don't Think She Loves Me Anymore - The Bushranger - She Comes Home With Me - Night Train to Brisbane - Goodbye Ford - Up & At'em Son - The Smell of an Oil Rag - Barney's Honky Tonk - The Race That Stops the Nation
 
Rod Brandt is from Queensland, Australia, and he's going to be a featured attraction at the 41st National Old Time Country/Bluegrass/Folk/& Gospel Music festival in LeMars, Iowa, Aug 29-Sept 4, 2016.  Mr. Brandt is a thoroughly rough and ready old-time traditional country singer.  He's a fine songwriter for sure, and writes about Australian life in the 'country.'  He borrows heavily from American tunes, "They're gonna put me in the movies" is a strong contender from some of Rod's musical melodies, but still he does it with justice and certainly some humor and good feelings.  Rod has done a number of great CD's, it's hard to pick just one out of the many, but he's more of a songwriter than usual, so it's kind of fun to hear what he's saying, with a wit and humor' on many of his award winning compositions.  His recorded music is played all over Australia, but the largest air play is around his own town of Margate.  He recorded this project at the Dragon Fire Studio in Margate, playing steel, lead, bass and rhythm guitar, and since I review on the quality of songwriting and vocalizing as opposed to over-produced sessions we hear so much from Nashville these days, it's still a pleasant experience to hear someone doing it from scratch, and Rod Brandt does that incredibly well. The sound is somewhat distorted at times, but I was still able to make a decent listen. I kind of like "Crows Upon the Roof" a song about the sounds of crows landing with a gigantic thud on a low profile roof and then proceeding to run up and down the roof cawing out.  Rod's best ability is song writing, "Goodbye Ford" is particularly interesting, it's about the demise of the manufacturing of Ford cars in Australia, which to him is a big shame since Ford has been such a big part of their automobile history.  Same thing happens to us here in America, where our 'own' are forgotten for cheaper labor elsewhere.  So it goes, and good songwriting material no matter how you look at it, or in this case listen to it.  Rod will be at the LeMars Old Time Music Festival all week, a good time to hear an authentic Aussie do his music as they like it old-time country in Australia.
