Death warmed up,
This review is from: Seven Curses (Audio CD)
Stripped-down versions of murder ballads, performed with style and respect, a lovely slice of Americana - how come no-one's reviewed this yet? (actually they have, but only on Amazon's UK site).
Jeffrey Foucault caught my attention with his finely crafted John Prine tribute Shoot the Moon Right Between the Eyes: Jeffrey Fou and this is just as good. Teamed up with Mark Erelli, they choose a great selection of murder ballads, and treat them with respect. And taking nothing away from any of the originals, "Johnny 99", "Ellis Unit 1", "Powderfinger" and the rest sound great brought together.
