Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Luck in the Valley is the 10th album from Jack Rose. The album continues the exploration of pre-war American music with a set of brand new material featuring The Black Twig Pickers, Glenn Jones, Harmonica Dan and Hans Chew along with a handful of solo pieces. This recording set out to capture the energy and feel of the classic three-track shack recordings by the Wray Brothers & Mordicai Jones. Luck in the Valley was written and recorded over a period of 9 months and finds Rose employing new themes and techniques.


Jack Rose, versatile master of the guitar. --New York Times

5.0 out of 5 stars Evening the odds July 2, 2011
Format:Audio CD
This album is really, really fine. Like all of Jack's music, it's acoustic, it's weird, and it's meditative. Twangy at times? perhaps. Rompin' maybe a better word. It's also very emotional, given that Jack died before this was even released. This music is so good. He was going places, stretching out traditional music, creating a new space. This is what we have, and for it I feel blessed.

5.0 out of 5 stars A listening pleasure September 21, 2012
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I was turned on to black Jack Rose by Pandora and was sad to find out he has recently passed away. This is the second album of his I've purchased and so far it's my favorite.

1.0 out of 5 stars Too 'twangy' February 4, 2011
By jbeaner
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I heard a track from this CD on the radio-it was done acoustically and it was wonderful. I had never heard of the musician prior but was excited about the purchase. If you like really 'twangy' music (sounds like some spoons and plucking wire are being used), then this one is for you; I was hopeful for more acoustic Jack Rose; that was indeed wonderful (but absent on this CD).
