The Man From Waco
New - LP - SOD12
New 2022 US Original, On Black Vinyl. A Non-Factory Sealed Item, Housed In A Protective Outersleeve With Custom Hype Sticker Affixed. "The Hardest-Working Man In Americana, Charley Crockett Decided To Take A Different Approach On The Man From Waco: He Took His Touring Band The Blue Drifters Into The Studio To Cut Their Record Direct To Tape. Relying On The Group's Dexterous, Energetic Live Energy Frees Crockett To Wander Down Many Scenic Byroads, Lingering In Areas That Feel Strangely Familiar. No Specific Sound Or Style On The Man From Waco Is New To Crockett, Yet The Way He's Flowing From Cowboy Ballads To Western Swing To Southern Soul Gives The Album A Lucid, Fresh Feeling. The Range Of Styles And Vast Openness Of The Arrangements Suggest A Cinemascope Western That Is Intentional, Too. Crockett Grouped His 15 Originals Around A Loose Thematic Narrative Chronicling The Titular Man From Waco On The Run After An Accidental Killing. Knowledge Of This Dramatic Undercurrent Enhances The Emotional Thrust Of The Album, But The Nice Thing About The Man From Waco Is That It Can Be Enjoyed As A Collection Of Sturdy Individual Songs, Each An Example Of A Certain Mid-century Roots Music Tradition. Taken One By One, The Tracks Are Compelling Short Stories, But When Assembled As An Album, They Gain A Collective Strength That Carries A Mighty Wallop." AMG Review By Stephen Thomas Erlewine. more
Welcome To Hard Times
New - LP - SOD007
New, 2020 US Original. No A Factory Sealed Item, Comes In Outer Protective Sleeve. "It Could Be Argued That Charley Crockett Is Productive To A Fault. Welcome To Hard Times Is His Second Album Of 2020 And His Third In Less Than A Year, An Output That Can Be Excused As A Reflection Of His Knowledge Of The Fleeting Nature Of Life. Unlike Its Predecessor The Valley, Welcome To Hard Times Wasn't Written With The Prospect Of His Own Mortality Looming Over His Head. By The Time The Valley Hit The Stores In September, Crockett Survived The Surgeries Correcting A Congenital Heart Condition, Which Leaves Welcome To Hard Times As The Album He Wrote In Its Wake. Death Still Rears Its Ugly Head, But It's Often In Scenarios As Picturesque As "Black Jack County Chain," A Throwback To Doomed Cowboy Songs That Experienced A Revival In The Middle Of The 20th Century. The Key To Crockett's Appeal Is How He Melds Flinty Storytelling With Music So Colorful, It Feels Cinematic. Welcome To Hard Times, Like Its Predecessors, Easily Swings Between Country, Blues, Swing, And Folk; Rock & Roll Is Never Heard But Felt In The Passion And Grit Of The Performances. This Easy Eclecticism Is Crockett's Calling Card, Also Evident On His Covers Collection Field Recordings, Vol. 1, And It's Burnished By A Production That Cannily Recalls The Echo-Drenched LP's Of The 1950s And Early '60s Without Ever Succumbing To Nostalgic Fetishism. To Crockett, This Sound Is As Timeless And Telling As Old Folklore, Which Is Why The Retro Vibe Of Welcome To Hard Times Feels So Vital: It's Not A Revival, It's Part Of The Continuum Of Great American Music."
