Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Southeastern [VINYL] (Vinyl)
I've been listening to a lot of really great American songwriters recently, John Prine, Guy Clark, early Tom Waits, Kris Kristopherson.....then I put on Jasons record and perhaps not unsurprisingly it falls well short and I think I know why. Whilst those others artists offer up sad little lives they do so through characters that are both not only recognisable and believable but with whom you instinctively care about. With the notable exception of 'Elephant' Isbell doesn't and therin lies the problem but then I'm comparing him with the greats.
