Editorial Reviews

Thistles & Salt on Cool Groove Records marks the second release for the label by Larry Stone. This record follows his successful Dreams Die Hard from 2008 when Stone returned to recording after a 20-year layoff from his career. The new songs on this CD reflect both life and death in a very intimate manner from Stone s current home base in the Adirondack Mountains, as well as the rural Berkshire town in northwest Connecticut where he is originally from. The 13 tracks contain some of the finest songs Stone has written to date. It Ain't Always Roses , It Won t Be Long, Girl in Blue Denim, and Old Doug and the Salt Bag Blues are a few that you won't forget once you've heard them. Stone gets biblical with John the Baptist. On Cowgone Boogie he moves to the economics of raising beef cattle, and adds a new performance of Aces and Eights (reprised from his first record in 1985) about the life and death of gunfighter Wild Bill Hickok. Out of the Woodwork is a conversation with the blues. Rounding out the record is an instrumental called Sally McGee that features some of the members of Larry s own Stoneman Band. The angel in Girl in Blue Denim who appears on Paul Mooney's deathbed, as well as the fateful love affair that haunted old Doug Ostrander for the rest of his life (Old Doug and the Salt Bag Blues) are true stories, which have found new voice in this collection
