Quite a few good new releases this week: The Lovell Sisters, Charlie Robinson, Jaime Kindleyside, Bearfoot, and one that really surprised me Ben Mallott.
I say it surprised me because I didn't expect much after glancing at the CD case. The picture of him in the barber chair reeked of bad country music. That and the fact that his last name conjures up images of bad redneck hair-do's. Boy was I wrong! Great songwriting, great production, great CD. Nice work Mr. Mallott, goes to show you: don't judge a book by it's cover.
Should have a bunch of cool new ones for next week.
