5.0 out of 5 stars More of the same but different! 9 Aug 2013
By Robert O. Davidson VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
I reviewed the last 2 Pokey La Farge studio albums and gave them 5 stars and this is up there with both of them. The source material for the music remains life in Kentucky and the banks of the Mississippi etc and the music is rooted in western swing, bluegrass, jazz, ragtime and Appalachian folk. The influences remain obvious - Milton Brown, Jimmie Rodgers and Bill Monroe to name a few. The difference with this album is the addition of a clarinet, cornet and lap steel guitar which provides a greater variety of sound and more of an early jazz vibe to some of the tunes. The overall feel of the album is still of a preservationist nature but it is a little less boisterous than the previous offerings - and is none the worse for it! The melodies are sweeter and more evident and the soloing subtler and better constructed. The songs themselves, as usual, tell stories of a bygone era with a wit and charm that effortlessly shifts through the various musical genres Pokey and the band specialise in.If you have the first last two studio albums and are wondering if this brings anything new then be assured that it does. Buy and enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Pokey Triumphant 7 Aug 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Pokey Lafarge has produced a mature, beautifully written and recorded album to propel him into 'stardom'. Now on Jack White's Third Man Records and co-produced by the talented Ketch Secor, Pokey's new CD employs the talents of his usual South City Three, plus a slew of other musicians to produce a more rounded offer. The singing is top class - a step up - the material is a marked improvement over Middle of Everywhere, and the overall feeling is of a top 'new' talent presenting himself to the best effect.

In live performances, he has added a female clarinettist and a male trumpeter, and this has given these live shows a lift. He no longer has to don the kazoo - and all that implied about his rough and ready approach. This album will sound 'the business' live - he has succeeded largely because of relentless touring and great live performances. He will achieve a bigger audience without changing his essential authenticity.

Standout tracks are Central Time, Won'tcha Please Don't Do It, Bowlegged Woman and Day After Day. All are very listenable to, and others may add to my list of favourites.

Congratulations to all involved - this is a far cry from the Pokey I first came across singing La La Blues. But it's still the same guy, with the same authentic American sound. Pokey, this is a wonderful effort.

5.0 out of 5 stars Spacious sounds abound! 7 Sep 2013
By Marat
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a brilliant album that manages to sound old time but fresh as well. Great fusion of folk, jazz, blues and swing. Mr Lafarge is a pretty good hand at writing excellent lyrics too!

4.0 out of 5 stars authentic retro music 5 Aug 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If you like live music Pokey Lafarge and his South City Three will blow you away and win you over even if your ears have been corroded by the harmful affects of modern manufactured "music". Pokey's music is timeless and genuine,ent It can make you tap your feet and move or simply break your heart, In the flesh he is so much fun and this translates onto this record.

The first two tracks "central time" and "Devil AInt lazy" are really catchy tunes the latter shows up how the band plays off each other with great guitar and harmonica solos and some of Pokey's best vocals. They then slow the pace down and wonder "what the rain may bring" complete with the newly added horn section and some backing vocals from Caitlin Rose who makes a couple of appearances on this record. Another one-two hits you with the foot tapping "Wontcha' please dont do it" and an ode to live on the road "One time at a time". Pokey carries on boasting with a song dedicated to his girlfriend "Kentucky Mae" as he brags about how lucky he is, and gently pokes fun at other men who cant have her. I dont really think theres a track worth skipping on this album with all the other songs being as good as the rest. I have one advantage over some in that I heard most of this album on their last uk tour and have already booked to see them.

The album was produced by Ketch secor of Old Crow Medicine Show fame, another retro old timey band who you should check out if you havent seen them.

Pokey Lafarge's album deserves to be self titled as it demonstates him at his best and I challenge anyone who has an ear for real music not to be won over.I should give it five stars but lets challenge the boys to see how they follow it up.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice Happy Foot Tappin' Music 4 Jan 2014
By purse
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Heard about this group a while back, so put one in my wish list. Only just got round to buying should have done so months ago.
Great for summer evening barbeques etc. Although all relatively new songs the feel of old New Orleans comes out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb album. 14 Nov 2013
By Dr.Don.
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Bought this album after a decent review. Not my usual musical genre (Dub and electronic) but anyone who likes good music will love this. I could not summarise it better than the following, from the review from the Observer, "Ragtime and country, jazz and swing; all swirl together on this collection of expertly formed roots nuggets."
