A modern trio playing Country music fusion with folk and American roots music lead by Boston favorite and Lowell, MA, native Bucky Fereke. Perfect for a long drive across the range between Reno and Winnemucca.
1. Small town church bells leading to upbeat country tune with Neil Young-like harmonica.
2. Energetic honky tonk with dogs barking in the background. Great vocal harmonies.
3. Mellow country.
4. Nice mandolin, more bluegrass than country. Interesting low-key fiddle mix with chorus-like harmonies.
5. Classic upbeat country sound with mandolin, xylophone, bass, and drum.
6. Interesting guitar and mandolin psychodelic reminiscent of 1960's San Francisco. Sounds like being played at empty Fillmore Auditorium soundcheck.
7. Heavy duty bass guitar rocks over everything while being played in the garage.
8. More country in style than most on the album. Classic country "Hang Dog" love song.
9. Edgy squealing donkey in the beginning. Upbeat country style with fiddle performed by a jilted lover.
10. Slow paced country about a break-up. Interesting drum and guitar mix.
11. A more upbeat break-up song.
12. An excited Father welcoming a newborn baby home. Nice mandolin ending with tweeting birds and a car engine in need of repair.
