Guide Review - Nashville Acoustic Sessions - Malo, Flynn, Ickes, and Pomeroy
Raul Malo has often been compared to Roy Orbison and on Roys Blue Bayou he showcases exactly why. In the hands of a lesser singer, the song would be butchered, with Raul, it is an instant classic. The Louvin Brothers The Great Atomic Power sounds much like it probably did in the past but here the band sounds like theyve got the Jordaniares backing them up. The Burrito Brothers hit Hot Burrito #1 is tastefully done as well. Van Morrisons great Bright Side Of The Road fits perfectly on this acoustic set.
Fans of Raul Malo, The Mavericks, acoustic music or those just looking for something different should check out The Nashville Acoustic Sessions. Each of these classic songs is done so tastefully and intimate, its as if they were being played on your front porch. That, my friends is the sign of a great and timeless album.
