There is not a bad or weak track on it!
Jimmy Dodson
"Gun-Metal Eyes" is a song I love and listen to a lot, but I must admit that I like it even more when sung by Tracy in concert.
Dave
Dave Carter and Tracy Grammer know how to make a unique sounding song and album.

Dave Carter may be gone, but here we have one last chance to hear him play his music with Tracy Grammer and it's a great gift. Dave and Tracy apparently were re-recording his old and out of print "Snake Handling Man" before he died and this is the result. The songs are mostly older Dave Carter songs from that CD with two new songs ("Seven is the Number" and "Gas Station Girl").

It is a great CD and with only three other Dave Carter CDs it's a must have. If you are new to Dave Carter I would start with his last CD: "Drum Hat Buddha". If you aren't sure go download "Ordinary Town" from Amazon's free downloads and give it a listen. I think you can download "When I Go" from his website. If that song doesn't give you chills then I don't know what to say.

My favorite songs on this CD:

"Red", a great little story song with Dave's classic word play. It's fun to listen to and try to unravel the lyrics.

"Gun-Metal Eyes" is a song I love and listen to a lot, but I must admit that I like it even more when sung by Tracy in concert.

"Long, Black road into Tulsa town" is a poignant auto-biographical song about Dave's youth that reminds me of "The Power and the Glory" from Drum Hat.

"Texas Underground" is a straight up country tune that took some time to grow on me but now I queue it up all the time.

It almost goes without saying that this CD is a must have. Dave Carter was one of the greatest song writers to ever live, and this is further proof of his genius.

Two thumbs way up! This CD is amazing. I have practically worn it out playing it so much. There is not a bad or weak track on it! Even the quirky "Texas Underground" grows on you after a few listens. From the optomistic title track, "Seven is the Number" to the spellbinding "Sarah, Turn Round" this CD just kicks major a**!!! All the vocals are provided by Dave with perfect harmonies and violin accompaniment by Tracy. The songwriting is surpurb. The vocals are just sooooo perfect on this CD! There is one little guitar riff on "Red" that I have been trying to figure out, but so far haven't been able to. I never tire of this riff or the song for that matter.

The production is stripped down here, mostly just guitar, vocals, violin, etc. It is hard to explain, but just trust me that you will love it. It is difficult to pick a favorite song, but perhaps my favorite is "Red(Elegy)" The chorus goes, "We are children of the Joshua Tree, long-time losers and O.G. wannabees" Another line has, "Mr. Rogers on the TV screen,...friendliest sucker I ever seen". However the subject matter of the song is dark, I won't spoil it. After a few listens of this CD you will be humming the songs as you won't be able to get them out of your head! I can't imagine anyone not liking this CD. I just don't know what else to say about it. Also, I love the packaging, the little drawings, etc.

I missed seeing Dave Carter for the first time by a week, at Falconridge Folk Festival, and having only recently discovered Drum, Hat, Buddha I was crushed to think there would be no more songs from this fantastic pair. Imagine my joy to learn this album had been released. I had some reservations, though, about an album released after Dave's death, thinking the songs would perhaps be poor quality demos or unfinished roughs. I need not have worried. This album, though not their best, doesn't fall short in any category, and in fact contains my new favorite song- Snake Handlin' Man. Thanks, Dave and Tracy.

Dave Carter never wrote a song I didn't like, but this album is not my favorite. At least at first listening, there's no catchy, driving tune to rival "Tillman Co." from Drum Hat Buddha or "Happytown" from Tanglewood Tree. Most of the songs have more of the feel of "Gentle Soldier of My Soul" or "Walkin' Away from Caroline" -- good songs, but not toe-tapping. Maybe this is a true reflection of Dave's early work, but if so, I prefer the later stuff. Tracy is also in more of a supporting role here. I'm sure I'll be listening to this a lot, but it will be in the "mellow afternoon" category.
