5.0 out of 5 stars A big new star, 15 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Live At Mr. Frits [barn Doors Spring Tour 2011] (Audio CD)
Having been listening to music for many many years I get really excited when I find someone new that I genuinely like and Israel Nash Gripka is in that rare category for me. He is a great songwriter, with good words and good tunes. To me he is a combination of Neil Young meeting the Rolling Stones in their Exile On Main St era. In fact he include Neil's "Revolution Blues" on this album and sounds just like him!

The quality of the recording is great you can hear the acoustic guitar seperated from the electrics and as a vocalist Israel hits the notes and emphasises his lyrics. What I also like is that certain tracks sound better with his live arrangement (Baltimore and Red Dress) than they do on the studio album. It may be a bit of a formula but he rocks along, slows it down and then ramps it up again, but hey I like that. (It's the stuff Ian Hunter does so well).

So if you like that guitar based american rock with a countryish edge and good songs with meaningful lyrics, this boy's for you.
