Product Description

That Old Southern Drag is Patrick Sweany's anticipated follow up to the 2007 Dan Auerbach-produced record Every Hour Is A Dollar Gone. Patrick has spent the past three years touring relentlessly both on his own and in support of artists such as The Black Keys, Hot Tuna, Paul Thorn, The Wood Brothers, and Sonny Landreth. On Southern Drag, Sweany wraps his retro blues rock around vintage Southern soul, recalling folks like Eddie Hinton and Solomon Burke, while maintaining his scruffy indie edge.

''If there was any justice in this old world, Patrick Sweany would already be a big star! Since deserving doesn't seem to have much to do with anything, it's up to us to treat ourselves to Pat's new recordings. Quite simply, he's the best. and I've been a fan for a long time. Dig it yourself and tell a friend!'' - Jorma Kaukonen (Hot Tuna, Jefferson Airplane, Member of the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame)

Sweany recalls the supple beauty of Ry Cooder's 70s readings of Depression-era pop blues. --Mojo

Sweany seamlessly melds indie rock with blues, soul and Americana. --Chicago Sun-Times

I am an experienced Patrick Sweany fan. I have thoroughly listened to all of Patrick's records to date, and this one is a bit of a departure. I have to be objective for the benefit of those of you who haven't heard Patrick's previous recordings. This record features the same great songwriting and vocals that are Patrick's signature. Patrick has always brought a fresh twist to old-flavored music with influences from R&B, '50s Rock 'N Roll, Blues, Cajun, Calypso, Bluegrass, Ragtime, and Country styles - a real smorgasbord that is uniquely Sweany. The main difference with this record is the maturity of production. The songs on this record sound like they were produced for mainstream airplay, although always hinting at music from the past. First time listeners will be greeted with music that is fun, passionate, and always listenable. Buy it.

Objectiveness aside, I will say that in my opinion the signature Sweany sound has always been his style of guitar playing with moving chords carrying the melody and interacting with his vocals. This is quite evident in his earlier recordings and less evident on this one. Although I miss that signature sound, I understand that artists must evolve. The bottom line here is, when you're done listening to the new record, go back and listen to some of his older records. Whether you like them better or not is a matter of taste, but they are all really great records. Great songs, great vocals, and some of the best music in this century from a REAL artist. I only hope that the sound that set Patrick apart from the crowd (at least for me) doesn't get lost. It's easy to get lost in the crowd in Nashville.

By the way, if you can, go see Partick and his band live. They are extremely fun and energetic!!

I found Patrick Sweaney by accident while listening to Pandora. What a happy discovery. I have listened through a few times and what a pleasure this album is. Great songs and great sounds all the way through. I bought this on vinyl and will now have to burn to disc so I can listen while driving. Definitely worth a listen imho.

Ohio native and Nashville immigrant Patrick Sweany makes rootsy sounds that are out of place on Music Row, but will be welcomed in the home of anyone who likes a side order of the `60s with their rock, soul, and blues. The album rolls through Southern soul, vintage rock `n' roll and anguished R'n'B, dovetailing punchy production with memories of Delaney and Bonnie, Arthur Alexander and the throwback sounds of Marshall Crenshaw. The bass, drums and rhythm guitar bolster the melodic howl of Sweany's voice; his singing is edgy, pleading, and emotionally raw from blue disappointment. The nostalgic "Rising Tide" hits a `70s rock groove that might have belonged to Bad Company, but the deep bass, funky horns, vamping organ and guitar figures of "The Edges" return the listener to the Memphis that Dan Penn laid on the Hacienda Brothers. The tour de force ballad "More and More" is given the Otis Redding treatment with hard percussive stops, while the acoustic plea "Frozen Lake" is gut-wrenching in the blue-soul of its romantic apprehension. Sweany is well-known as a guitarist and songwriter, and he bolster each accolade here, but it's the deep well of emotion in every vocal that will make this record stick in your heart. 4-1/2 stars, if allowed fractional ratings.
