The first time that I heard a slide guitar accompanying Irish traditional music (albeit 1 track) was on an Arlo Guthrie Album released about 38 years ago. The album name escapes me, but the players on the track "Farrel O'Gara" were Kevin Burke and Ry Cooder. It was, probably still is a good track and I haven't heard it since, and that is where I have a problem with "Six Days In Down". (But I suppose times change and new approaches have to be at least, explored.)
I have been and still am, an admirer of Bob Brozman,from his days with Robert Crumb and the Cheap Suit Serenaders, through to his works with Ledward Kapaana etc. He is a hard working musician, no doubt about that and a walking musical historian too.
John Mc Sherry, likewise, is a great musician, from the deep vein of Irish tradition. He was especially superb on Donal Lunny's "Coolfin". Again, Donal O'Connor is another example of peerless talent.
Personally I just don't think that the Hawaiian lap steel or any slide guitar goes well with Irish traditional music; certainly not on long hauls like this offering.
I do not think that ragtime rhythms go well with the pipes, and I find the track "Portaferry Swing" irritating. "Beer Belly Dancing" is entertaining, as is the very decent version of "Hardiman The Fiddler".
That said, I have great respect for the musicians, and I understand that a tight recording schedule was a major factor here, but I could be wrong. I would of liked to have heard a bit of banjo from Bob Brozman, as we all know he is very capable player. So, to end it all, I think it could have been a lot better.
(I originally intended to give it 3 stars, but they are nice fellas.)
