It's been a long time.........,
This review is from: Smokey Rolls Down Thunder Canyon (Audio CD)
It's been a long time since I felt like this about a new release. Mostly you pretty much know what to expect when you first hear a new album from someone you've grown to love and here's the twist....sometimes, just sometimes, you take a listen and you're not sure...you're not comfortable...it's not what you expected...is it as good as you thought it might be?...doesn't sound like it...sounds kind of strange...oh dear!...try again, give each track a 2nd listen...still uncomfortable, but that bit sounds pretty good...hold on, I like that bit as well....and is that Vashti Bunyan singing?....still not sure....listen again....wow, here's another bit that sounds great and I'd not noticed that guitar before, still not sure...listen again... You get the picture, slowly but surely this gets better and better. Might take a few listens but this is classic DB and co. Takes me back (showing my age now) to how I felt listening to the Incredible String Band for the first time...Keep listening, there are gems in here.
