Biography

Dave Charles Shuford (aka D. Charles Speer) grew up in Georgia, absorbing the culture and history of the American South before moving to New York in the early 90s. He quickly fell in with the experimental rock underground that has long been an undercurrent of that city’s defining spirit, most notably as a member of the long-running No Neck Blues Band. The loose and free country rock ... Read more in Amazon's D. Charles Speer Store

Review

Ragged and Right opens with the plaintive soul of Prison Song, the melancholy resonance of old hammered piano strings soon joined by yearning liquid lap steel played by Jack Rose. D. Charles Speer joins in with his deep vocal croon reminiscent of a younger Johnny Cash lamenting his misfortune from behind the bars of a cold prison cell...the day he crossed paths with a bewitching raven haired, ruby lipped lady, who suckered him into robbing a bank. --Acoustic Guitar

Product Description

This slab of gripping sound was brought about by Jack Rose"s exuberant love of lowdown music. Inspired by the Mordicai Jones/Link Wray 3 Track Shack sessions, the idea for this collaboration was germinated while Rose was traveling through the heartland on a tour with D. Charles Speer & the Helix in spring 2008. Musicians used to the road are familiar with the phenomenon wherein a certain tape or recording becomes the thematic soundtrack to the tour at hand. In this case, daily doses of Scorpio Woman and In the Pines as performed by Link Wray became the touchstones for their travels together. Jack got so excited by the vibes emanating from these songs that he wanted to break with his usual acoustic approach and get some electricity in his life again. So he enlisted the Speer band to join in some unhinged and unrepentant fun in the studio. Recorded using an all live, no overdub approach, the resultant session was deemed an all time favorite experience by everyone lucky enough to partake in it. A gleaming bottle of Buffalo Trace helped shepherd us through the dark hours of the night, and in turn that spirit animal adorns the front cover of the record. As producer, Jason Meagher was able to capture the visceral rough and tumble feel that invigorated his Black Dirt Studio in the dog days of August 2008. Featuring the original lineup of D. Charles Speer & the Helix in peak form and rare lap steel and Telecaster stylings from Rose, Ragged and Right displays a vibrancy and depth of feeling that is striking and unforgettable.
