The late Bob Carpenter finished working on 'Silent Passage' in 1974, but thanks to a contract headache on Warner Records' behalf, it wasn't released until 1984, by which time Carpenter was no longer active in the country rock scene. The record is a sinister personal collection of songs performed with Carpenter's rusty and unforgiving vocals at the front, giving the record a vibe as unsettling as a Vic Chesnutt record, but fashioned after old country traditions. Carpenter influenced folk artists as significant as Emmylou Harris and Billy Joe Shaver, who went on to cover his songs long after he'd given up on them.
