Yeah well, you know, everyone's importing this tasty piece..lovely on vinyl, CD out on Beautiful Happiness..vinyl actually in stock, we didnt get many..CD out in two weeks; we have a few of the nice vinyl version on KLANG, Raw and rocking collaboration between JACK ROSE and THE BLACK TWIG PICKERS with some of the most swinging, hard-hitting string music waxed in many a decade. Rose's solo playing has always had a tough edge, with his prodigious technique often employed in the service of dropping right-hand bombs-his use of a thumbpick originates from his years of duets with Twig MIKE GANGLOFF, struggling to make his guitar heard over Gangloff's crashing banjo. The front line of Rose and Gangloff's strings are joined by ISAK HOWELL's no-nonsense guitar and harmonica and NATE BOWLES' variety of expert percussion. The four players lock together with a sure-footedness honed by frequent touring and a singularity of intent to rock. Gangloff takes the vocals, howling out standards like "Little Sadie" firmly in the old-time tradition-without reserve. A few of the tracks here are updates of Rose & family classics, with the group turning the stately "Kensington Blues" upbeat and an issuing an assured take on "Bright Sunny South," first recorded by PELT (with Rose and Gangloff) back in 2001 on their gonzo classic double Ayahuasca.
