Review: Red Dog Tracks by Chip Taylor and Crrie Rodriguez

 Uncategorized  Comments Off on Review: Red Dog Tracks by Chip Taylor and Crrie Rodriguez
May 242005
 

Chip Taylor has an impressive songwriting history. He’s the guy who wrote “Wild Thing” for The Troggs (and everyone under the sun as covered it.) His songs have been covered by everyone from Linda Ronstadt to Janis Joplin to The Hollies. The songwriting skills are evident here. Here’s a songwriter who’s not afraid to experiment with tempo changes, key changes, and vocal styles. This CD goes deep country and blue grass. At its best (1,2) it sounds like a good post-Deadhead CD. At it’s worst (7), it sounds too deeply hillbilly for me to enjoy.

Taproot Tracks:

Track Number / Title / Notes
1 / Must Be The Whiskey / Laidback, Deadhead vibe.
2 / Keep Your Hat On Jenny / good whiny fiddle sounds
9 / I Can’t Help It / Carrie Rodriguez’s best track; good harmonies with Chip Taylor

Review: Call Me Lonesome by Dave Insley

Call Me Lonesome by Dave Insley
Call Me Lonesome by Dave Insley,
originally uploaded by cspowers.

Reminds me of a young, slightly less nasal Willie Nelson. GREAT songwriter in the classic honky tonk style, sad but with an upbeat sense of life. Some tracks (3 especially) have southern rock vibe.

Taproot Tracks:

Track Number / Title / Notes

3 / Laid To Waste / southern rock jam band anthem vibe
5 / Just Call Me Lonesome / twangiest tune on the CD, good pedal steel and guitar work.
1 / There’s Gonna Be A Few Changes / humurous, very twangy, honky tonk song.
8 / Gilded Cage / honky tonk with song with a clarinet solo? You bet. It works
