Editorial Reviews

Product Description

An inspired player who has gained respect through his impressive guitar playing and world class bango playing. Mixes modern day music with traditional, creating a sound distinctly his.

Tony Furtado keeps pulling new rabbits out of his hat. A former Grand National banjo champion, he's ventured deeper into his eclectic bluegrass-rock-blues fusion and mastered the slide guitar as well. On These Chains, Furtado has pushed his singing and songwriting to the fore, offering a batch of impressive originals penned with collaborators like Jim Lauderdale, Al Anderson, and Jules Shear. Furtado's youthful, contemporary-sounding tenor works as effectively on a biting blues-rock lament like the title tune as it does on a gentle pop ballad like "Standing in the Rain" or his folky duet (with Shear) on Dylan's "One Too Many Mornings." Of course, a Furtado disc wouldn't be complete without a sizzling, slide-driven blues instrumental; this time around, it's the exquisite "Doc's Bog." --Bob Allen

7 of 8 people found the following review helpful By applewood on January 7, 2005
Format: Audio CD
I'm conflicted about this recording and new direction of Tony's. I love his instrumental treatments (lots of 5 star guitar, slide, and banjo here), but his songwriting leaves me a bit flat. It reminds me of Sam Bush's stuff (honest, sincere, unpretentious), but not as honed as Sam's. These songs veer just too close to mainstream pop/rock/country for my tastes. I would have liked to hear more intrumentals as he has so much talent for playing and interpreting great tunes. I just feel it's obscured and diluted here by his immature songcraft.

For the committed fan - by all means get this and see the direction he's exploring now. For the new listener I'd recommend any of his earlier recordings (especially like AMERICAN GYPSY -both the studio and live versions), and wait and see what he does next.
