Format: Audio CD
Frank Black is carving a comfortable niche for himself as a country-inflected singer songwriter, and appears a world away from the Pixies on this album. His vocal delivery is somewhat mellower than usual, and there appears to be none of the barking or growling which is somewhat of a trademark of his on this album. However, instead of suggesting someone who is simply not trying any more, this hints toward him being more content; as he and the Catholics lay into this collection of songs, it becomes apparent that this in fact the case.
This is a highly accomplished album, played masterfully and enlivened with beautful pedal steel guitar, and as this was recorded live to 2 track it shows a band with real connection, who are also incredibly tight. Some of the guitar work hints at a Joey Santiago-style lack of concern over time signatures, and this is another highlight of the album. Anything recorded by this colossus of music is going to be musically interesting, and this is no different here as he gives country the full Frank Black treatment.
This is an excellent album from a modern legend, and one ideal for those wishing to take a roadtrip around America from the comfort of their arm chair.

After I listened to this and it's sister record - "Devil's Workshop" - I was a little disappointed as it didn't have the same impact on me as "Dog in the Sand". After a few listens it was relegated to the "rarely played" section of my CD pile. A couple of weeks ago I was searching for some CDs to listen to on my commute to work and I chose this. It has not been out of my CD player much since! A wonderful collection of rock/country/bluesy tunes recorded "as live" in Frank's modbile studio. A unique CD deserving to be a part of any collection.

This album, as one of the other reviews mentioned, is a definite grower. I thought it was a bit dull when I listened to it first but after a few listens the songs really began to reveal themselves. It's now probably my favorite Frank Black album. I don't think there's any "dogs" on it at all, which is a great achievement considering that it has 18 (!) tracks and was released the same day as Devil's Workshop (another great Frank Black album). If you're looking to get some solo Frank Black, this is a good place to start.

Couple of tracks that are real dogs but some magnificent stuff. This is the way with Frank and as I fan I expect some weeding however the quality of the great tracks outstrips Dog in the Sand. Whilst a better album for consistency the high points outstrip the earlier album. Pistolero had a few magnificent high points but had a pack of dogs accompanying them.
Real country theme but the music has the assured smoothness of the great man. I am listening to this long after I have wrung all his other albums dry.

When i first heard this album i have to admit i was a bit dissapointed but after repeated listens, Black letter days reveals itself as the most eclectic set of songs of FB's career.
Kicking off with a crazy rock n roll cover of a classic Tom Waits song and then giving you Black Letter days itself, one of the most satisfying songs FB has given us since the days of the pixies. Recorded live on 2 track, the sound of this record is like dog in the sand but denser with some songs sounding like he must have a ten piece band in the studio with him. Released at the same time as Devils Workshop, this album is the more mellow of the two and at times sounds like the meat puppets. If you want a Frank Black Rock album in the style of the pixies get Devils workshop, if you want a Frank Black collection of songs album, get this, you won't be dissapionted. Having said that though, Jane the Queen of love and 21 reasons rock! long live Frank Black, he may be underated but is still delivering great records!! the pixies? who are they?
