  • $13.50


Rosenberg, who has had several nice dobro albums out previously, is joined here by Billy Cardine, another dobro picker: in addition to their main instruments, they both also play clawhammer banjo and some of the best of the 10 tunes on this album feature combinations of those two. While there are touches of Bluegrass here, this is basically a collection of mostly original tunes that lean to a moody, more experimental acoustic sound, with touches of jazz, old-time and even oriental motifs. There are two vocals here, one each by Mary Lucey and Shannon Whitworth—curiously, both fall just a hair short of being really effective by projecting an affected, sultry style that just doesn’t sound natural. Otherwise it’s a nicely produced album with some quite interesting moments. FAR IN THE WIND, CREPTID DONKEY, NO ASH WILL BURN, etc.
