9/10 Phil Staff review, 06 February 2009
If you're after a history in American early folk and bluegrass music then you have to delve no further than this weeks album of the week by Charlie Parr. Previously only seeing him live had really caught my attention but after 'Roustabout' had been played I decided I was a massive fan. I should have been ages ago but wasn't for some reason. I was probably being contrary or something 'cos everyone else in the office liked him. Humans are stupid like that. This is the most soulful and honest sounding unpretentious music I've heard in a long while. It's 12 tracks in total, 9 are Charlie's penned originals and the others are traditional songs played in the style of said Charlie. Anyone into American folk music will love this. It's done with so much feeling and knowledge about the subject you'd think Charlie was about 100 years old and had been making it for years. Authenticity is the word here. There's some amazing guitar plucking on here which sends shivers down my spine. It's a fantastic album and by far the best I've heard from him (in my opinion). If you're a fan of Charlie Patton and John Fahey you'd probably like this. Even if you like Seasick Steve you'd like this. Note this is about a million times better than him!! Check it funsticks.
