Well this is really nice. Primarily a contemporary folk recording with some very subtle psychedelic & dark country elements, RRD is Cornwall dwelling David Morris and he steers clear of the haughty excesses of the trad. brigade & fills his brightly played yet sometimes somber songs with feeling & wonder. An occasional electric steals into the mix & there's also some harp action to be had. Comparisons are exhaustible so I simply won't bother. David has a likeable, plaintive voice and his style later on errs slightly towards Bill Callahan/Oldham territory. The playing throughout is full & most engaging. I'm liking it more & more as it progresses, the atmosphere is captivating me. I wish he lived locally so I could go & see him live & drink it right in. This CD will have to suffice for now. It will appeal to Americana fans but it's not necessarily of that ilk. You won't regret this if you like strong singer-songwriter material. Plus, forget Rhodri from Wales - whoever assembles these is THE origami champ. Oh its Jakebox.com....Swedish eco packaging? Wait till you see......
