5.0 out of 5 stars Magic Moments creating new Memories, 21 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Memories & Moments (Audio CD)
O'Brien and Scott have concocted a quite magical chemistry, often achieved by alternating roles and blending the two voices so that you are sometimes uncertain as to who is doing what. Broadly speaking, Scott has the baritone voice and plays mainly guitar and five-string banjo, while O'Brien supplies the High Lonesome Sound high harmony vocals and mandolin and fiddle.
But this is an oversimplification, as occasionally Scott throws in a falsetto whooping vocal and swaps high /low responsibilities with O'Brien in mid-stream - their teamwork is good enough for either to throw in a potential spanner at any time, and the other has the ears and the skill to pick it up immediately.The songs are mostly original and very fine too, but they are joined by the great John Prine on a rendition of his beautiful song 'Paradise' , a sort of Kentucky version of 'How Green Was My Valley', lamenting the destruction of beautiful hillsides by open-cast coal mining. Unforgettable Moments and wonderful new memories.
