Here is a re-issue of Vic Chesnutt's 2005 album "Ghetto Bells" in which the Athens-based songwriter was joined by a veritable who's who of collaborators most notably jazz icon Bill Frisell and legendary multi instrumentalist Van Dyke Parks. It perfectly places Chesnutt's poetic delivery within a frame of gorgeously realised music.

8/10 Jack Customer review, 25th June 2017

This album sounds like a Vic Chesnutt album, with the inimitable vocals and dark-green sounding guitar but it also sounds like a Bill Frisell album as the man's sunsetty guitars perfectly weave through the songs adding dimensions. While Silver Lake had a very good backing band- here the band is not so much backing but adding their own very distinct and musical talents to the mix. Van Dyke Parks accordion (concertina?), string arrangements sound like open spaces or parisian streets. The album is well-produced but not over-produced.
