Customer Review

on 11 January 2009
The Wikipedia entry for The Do-Whaters, Miss Lynn's band , says that despite containing 3/4 of The Raconteurs there is little resemblance between the music made by the 2 bands. This review is written with the benefit of hindsight of hearing the direction The Raconteurs have gone in Consolers of the Lonely and several bluegrass and acoustic re-workings of their own songs. Whilst this is an excellent album in its own right I'd say the seeds for The Raconteurs were obviously thoroughly sown here, so many thanks to Miss Lynn, not only for this record but for the impetus this must have given for The Raconteurs.

Any of Portland Oregon, Have Mercy, High on a Mountain Top , Women's Prison and Mrs Leroy Brown would sit happily on Consolers of the Lonely and any-one familiar with The Raconteurs live work will recognise, in particular, Patrick Keeler's contribution.

This really is a terrific record. The dynamics, structuring, musicianship and Miss Lynn's voice are faultless; even songs one might think will not work such as the spoken Little Red Shoes or God Makes No Mistakes work perfectly.

Much as I love Emmylou Harris , I agree with the reviewer who said it would be wonderful to hear Emmylou taking a chance on a project like this.

Oh and if any-one who liked this hasn't checked out Blanche and Little Amber Bottles , then do. You'll love it .
