Editorial Reviews

Word of this album has been circulating among Grayson Capps' fans for years. Recorded in 2003--two years before his debut album "If You Knew My Mind"--this magical, stripped-down session features Grayson on acoustic guitar and his longtime friend Tom Marron on fiddle. Recorded at New Orleans' 9th Street Pickin Parlor, Grayson let the tape roll, cutting the entire album in less than five hours. Appropriately titled "Songbones," Grayson's original renditions of songs like "Washboard Lisa," "I Can't Hear You," "Slidell" and "Mermaid," that have since become staples in his repertoire, are featured. Also included are rarities that have never been officially released like "Junior & The Old African Queen," "Guitar" and "Psychic Channel Blues." It's a pristine recording that captures Grayson's songwriting, voice and guitar-picking in all of its unadorned glory. Only 5000 copies of the album are being made available as a collector's piece for Grayson's diehard fans. "Songbones" is intimate, front porch music, honest, down-home and pure; all of the traits that make Grayson Capps one of the most important songwriters to emerge from the South in recent memory.

All the other reviewers capture the jist of this recording - and I still rank it as
five stars despite the annoying screeching of the violin player. I'd love to hear this recording without the distracting violin. You have a set of gritty yet poetic tunes sung passionately by a great singer acoustic guitar player accompanied by this cutesy gypsy-jazz type
violin. In my mind the two styles don't jive; on a couple tunes the violin isn't too bad, but on some others it is, well bad. What's wrong with the violin just playing the melody, maybe harmonizing with it a bit, but no, this dude has to try to create sound effects, too. Yech! But kudos to Grayson for his voice and great tunes.
I bought his solo dvd to hear some of these tunes with just his voice & guitar.

Well, that's it then. 3 microphones, two chairs, a guitar and a violin.
Recorded in 2002 before Stavin' Chain was a fact.
Some of these songs later found their way on Capps' albums, some are heard here for the first time on CD.
All of them however are worthy of release.
If you're a fan at all of Grayson Capps then get this acoustic document on the double.
It's great!

This CD Songbones was pitched at me with another cd and I deceided to try it, I liked the sound. This is now one of my favorite cds and I will definatly own more of his music soon. I highly reccomend this artist and his work, a unique voice and tempo. He has stories to tell, and a haunting voice to tell them with, Songbones is a very apt title.

I first came across Grayson Capps in the film A Love Song for Bobby Long, and I've scrambled to get his stuff ever since. In The Pitch(KC's Village Voice) a reviewer said that his licks sounded "like they were scraped off the neck with a putty knife." Absolutely! He is at his best with just him, his guitar, voice, and a song. The title of this disc is perfect. He couldn't have come from anyplace but the South. He's so authentic- there's no pretense or glitter here. Just real stories and real musical telling of them. Intimate and awesome.

I've had this on my wishlist for some time, and was quite surprised when my loving wife made it one of my Christmas presents. I already had all of his other albums, including Stavin' Chain, and I've seen him many times in person,in New Orleans, Gulfport, THE SHED, and around Daphne . . . but never have I been moved so close to tears as I was in listening to this. There are some songs that haven't appeared on other albums, but listening to his 'standards' done in such a natural setting is totally remarkable. Those who have heard him before really need to listen to this collection. If you haven't, try some of his other releases first . . . you'll love them . . . and then listen to the versions on this CD . . . then you'll truly understand the magic of not only his writing, but his musical performance . . . the depth of his writing is amazing! And Tom's accompaniment is marvelous . . . even better than Skinny Mary . . . but I still love her too . . .

This CD is the most intimate Grayson Capps recording you can find. If you like subtile singer-songwriter work, with just a voice, a guitar, a violin, and sometimes an harmonica... not totally folk, not classifiable really, but a personal, genuine, right-to-the heart style of music by a genuine guy singing out his feelings through his heart & guts.... No arrogance, no artificial anything, just an athmosphere, a story, often about the simple persons or the simple life he lived in Louisiana, sharing beautiful observations of everyday life and everyday's feelings, but o so special. For the lovers of good, good music.
