Editorial Reviews


When it comes to contemporary bluegrass, Tangleweed certainly knows how to deliver in style. --Bluegrass Unlimited, May, 2007

As evidenced by song titles like 'Hard Times' and 'Make Me a Pallet on the Floor', Tangleweed's music isn't far from the ancient sources of its inspiration, but it is also ticklishly close to the kind of irreverence that makes for brilliant pop songs and beer commercials. --Honolulu Weekly, February 21, 2007

An unabashedly old-fashioned record, traditional and proud and with enough energy and skill to convince any doubter. [Review of Tangleweed's previous CD, 'Where You Been So Long'] --Americana UK, November, 2006

Product Description

An introduction to this sound recording, by Alexander Gelfand, Ph.D

Sometimes, simple is best.

We live in an age of wonders: an age of low-fat soy beverages, electric cellphones, and the global Interweb.

But for all we have gained, we have lost something, too. In our relentless quest for progress, we have sacrificed quality of life for standard of living.

Our forebears may have skimped on extravagances like leisure time, shoes, and proper oral hygiene. But they were authentic. They had integrity the kind you can only get from dirt farming, or tractor pulling, or an old-fashioned cholera epidemic.

Most of us will never have the luxury of experiencing this stuff for ourselves. But we do have the next best thing.

We have Tangleweed.

Thanks to the craft and dedication of these five men, we can all vicariously return to a golden era. An era before public education, universal vaccination programs, and the Social Security Administration destroyed so much of our moral fiber. An era when a man could commit murder in both the first and second degrees ('Little Sadie') before settling down sick in a lonely bed ('Lay Down My Guitar') and kissing his 'Short Life of Trouble' goodbye.

Good times.

So sit back, fire up the hi-fi, and bask in these songs of heartbreak, poverty, and death. It doesn't get any better, or more real, than this.

And for that, I think we can all be grateful.
