A Reverse Chronology of Selected Significant Dates & Events

"Bird could be the only performer who's lit up both Lollapalooza and Bonnaroo with a combination of vocals, violin, guitar, glockenspiel and whistling... he uses centuries-old instrumentation to give depth and soul to folk rock."--ESQUIRE "The Masters Are Dead--Long Live The Masters," November ...

Editorial Reviews

Deluxe two CD edition includes his Hands Of Glory album as well as his previous release, Break It Yourself. 2012 release from the acclaimed singer/songwriter. Coming on the heels of Bird's critically acclaimed full-length Break It Yourself, Hands Of Glory features a brand new original track, a pair of re-worked tracks from Break It Yourself and covers of songs by the Carter Family, the Handsome Family, Alpha Consumer and others. Hands of Glory was inspired by the great fan reaction to Bird's 'old-time' sets on tour in which his full band plays to a single microphone with an entirely acoustic setup.

These albums are both beautiful. If you are new to Andrew Bird, or have been listening to him for a decade, you don't want to miss these. Buy the CDs or buy the MP3s, either way, you won't be disappointed. He is certainly one of the most talented musicians and composers of our generation and he just keeps getting better.

Hands of Glory was, for mine, even better than Break it Yourself. Amazon packaging them at this price essentially means you get 2 albums (HoG is an EP of sorts, but plays for half an hour)for well under $10 each.
Fans probably have both already, first time listeners will find this a decent place to start and work back if interested.
Andrew Bird sticks to more 'traditional' song structures on these recordings - but this is not to say that these songs are in anyway MOR, it's just h applies his ingenuity to his string playing and phrasing, rather than oddball vignettes...There's still quite a bit of whistling though.

I am old enough to have an appreciation for the retro approach to this type of music. I would like to buy more. However, I hope the enclosures will be more durable. This is the only review I have made. Two other reviews listed as mine are for DVDs I bought but did not review.
