River Ain't Too Much to Love album for sale Product Description



River Ain't Too Much to Love album for sale by Smog was released May 27, 2008 on the Drag City label. Like fellow southern singer/songwriter Will Oldham, Bill Callahan (AKA Smog) has been moving steadily over the course of his career toward a more straightforward musical approach. Whereas some of Callahan's earlier efforts were concerned with fractured song structures and experiments, 2005's A RIVER AIN'T TOO MUCH TO LOVE finds him at his most appealingly direct. River Ain't Too Much to Love CD music Like most Smog albums, this one is stripped down (comprised mainly of Callahan's guitar and voice augmented by violin, piano, and light percussion), but the writing is particularly honest, intimate, and revealing. That A RIVER AIN'T TOO MUCH TO LOVE was recorded in Willie Nelson's Pedernales Studios may have something to do with its rustic simplicity; it is rootsier and more country-inflected than any previous Smog album. A slow-motion country treatment of the Leadbelly song "In the Pines" drives the point home, but Callahan's lyrics--which demonstrate his usual flair for narrative, imagery, detail, and moving confessionalism--are the real anchor, sounding as though they were written during a winter-long hibernation in a backwoods cabin. River Ain't Too Much to Love CD music contains a single disc.   ...See Full Description

an album for old & new fans
River Ain't Too Much to Love album for sale all the trademarks are here, yet more than ever tinged with hope and comfortable reflection. River Ain't Too Much to Love CD music sad AND heartening at the same time, like how good blues music can do. "Rock Bottom Riser" is gorgeous, "The Well" is funny, imaginative, & strange in the distinctive Callahan fashion. As is every other great song on here. Buy, old and new fans!
