Yee-haw!! When is an album not an album? I’d have said this was a 12”. It has two songs on it - albeit long ones. The first, ‘Merry Mountain Hoedown’, is just as you imagine, a banjo and fiddle workout with carefully placed yee-haws. It’s thoroughly enjoyable but nothing that isn’t playing in a rootin’ tootin’ American rural bar on a beer fuelled Saturday night when people do that wiggle in a chair whilst sat down dance routine.
The flip ‘Brushy Fork of Johns Creek’ is a more sparse affair, still inhabited by the fiddle and banjo combo with some added hand percussion, perfect for that barn dance. Halfway through the thing cracks into life with some added acoustic guitars, the sheer repetitiveness creates a mantra-like feel and you soon get lost in their rustic world. I never knew these two were in Pelt with Jack Rose. Nope, never knew it.
