Never ever miss a Greg Brown show. This folk singer from Iowa writes songs and plays songs unparalled, almost.

February 2001, Ann Arbor, MI. I got the last ticket to see GBs first of two sets at the Ark. The opening act, Jeff Lang.

When the guy in the red t-shirt walked out, I expected he was going to introduce the opener. Surprise of surprises, he sits down, picks up an acoustic lap steel (turns out one of Australian manufacture) and proceeds to amaze the audience with a 45 minute set of music so overwhelmingly intense as to boggle the mind.

His style of play is somewhere between Chet Atkins, Junior Brown and Johnny Ramone. Where the chainsaw meets the six string, his intensity playing rivaled only by the dark and desperate tone of his vocals, contrasted with a quiet and self-deprecating intrasong banter providing a sensory juxtaposition difficult to describe. At the end of the set, only two thoughts; WOW! and Can I get a CD???

Fortunately, there are several. This one "Disturbed Folk Vol. 2" being a live recording with "no overdubbing" ended up in my pocket as I made my way home.

EVERY TRACK is astonishing. At times, the thought of it being "a solo live recording" is too much to fathom. Had I not seen it, I would not believe it. Many of the cuts are Lang originals, though there are a few covers.

Track One, "We Don't Ask". Dualing banjos, except that one banjo is the Churchill Acoustic Lap Steel, the other is Lang's vocal. The lyric makes the phrase "Question Authority" a battle cry.

Track Two, "Scream". Another ballet mosh on the Churchill. The last five minutes are a Hendrix-esque assault on the senses in the form of a solo that must leave the artist exhausted, it certainly does the user.

The man is a genius. Quite why he doesn't get the recognition he deserves is beyond me. I've been lucky enough to see him play live twice up to now and I can't wait for him to come back to the U.K. again. And he's a bl**dy nice, unassuming, bloke as well who was happy to chat after the gig. That, I suppose, is the "upside" of him not being a major star for us as fans; he plays smaller venues and is happy to be accessible after the gigs. This cd gives you a real flavour of what he can do and what you'll get if you're ever fortunate enough to see him play live.
