Continuing his one man revival of St.Louis Americana of the 1920's and 1930's, Pokey and his gang of three have created another wonderful recording. Their debut album had stronger, more consistent material than this follow up, but the performances are great from all the players, so you don't notice the odd bald patch. That being said, there are many good songs and no obvious duds. My favorites are Drinkin Whiskey Tonight, So Long Honeybee, Head to Toe and Shenandoah River. I saw the band play all these songs live last summer - in addition to the first record's output,and they sounded great live.

This is a great band, and Pokey is an iconoclast like no other. Some say an acquired taste - I say, a tasty good old slice of American pie. Eat up.

Middle of Everywhere is Pokey LaFarge's 4th full-length album. Once again it is a folk / country / bluegrass / dixieland jazz / ragtime / St Louis / Mississippi rooted offering but there is no sense of the band resting on their previous abundant accomplishments. The 3rd album 2010's 'Riverboat Soul', won the 10th Annual Independent Music Award for "Best Americana Album", and they have recently recorded a new 45 rpm single which has been released exclusively on Jack White's label, Third Man Records. This time around though there is slightly more of a New Orleans early jazz feel than before due to the addition of tenor banjo, cornet, trombone and drums to the South City Three's backing.

Though traditional-sounding the songs are in fact all self-penned by Pokey and the recipe is the same as before - i.e. the world inhabited by good-time girls, philandering men and illegal whisky. As usual it is all delivered with customary flair and in the rootsy, bright, brash and raucous upbeat western swing style that we are beginning to recognise as the band's trademark. The rhythms are impeccable and the feel is reminiscent of Jimmie Rodgers (without the yodelling). Rodgers is often referred to as the father of American country/folk music and did arguably more to bring blues to a wider audience than anyone else in the late'20s and early 30s. He was also a huge influence on the likes of Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf and Mississippi John Hurt. In "Cleaning Windows," Van Morrison sings about listening to Rodgers. All of which might give you something of a gut-feeling of where Pokey and the guys are coming from.

Once again an unreserved recommendation.

Saw these guys with Jools Holland, and they are just great foot-stompin fun. These are a bunch of genuinely talented musicians giving everything they've got to this southern retro style. Bouncy and light hearted, don't buy this if you are looking for infinite variety in a CD or if you're one of those overly serious, wrinkled forehead "trad music purists". If you like this southern retro folk style and just want a little list to your day- this is for you.

Good old foot tapping stuff.Its very refreshing to hear young lads reverting to this type of music .some of the instruments used in this recording,are vintage,and reflect the music superbly.Keep it up Pokey,and keep playing proper happy music.

Off the back of Riverboat Soul, I bought this album. Again Pokey LaFarge and the South City Three have excelled themselves.

I just love this and hope you enjoy it too.

bought on first sight as I fell in love with the band's name when trawling through looking for some bluegrass- great old style sound- they then played in my home town - they are wicked live- go see them if you get chance

Came across this album by accident and very glad I did! A joy from first track to last - would have liked it to have been longer - 41 mins. Great musicianship here: true to style & instrumetation - loved the harmonica here; sweet coronet; ultra melo trombone playing and Louisanna style guitars plus banjo: LaFarge's voice moves these numbers also at a pace, and effortously... great arrangements...authentic and fun! Thoroughly recommend.
