Truesounds – Spring ‘10

Welcome to the new place! What better way to launch the new site than with a Truesounds comp. I promised this, and I have had it ready for about a week, but I was afraid to post it on blogger because of the recent rash of DMCA takedowns. So I spent the last few days trying to figure out how the hell to make this site, and with a lot of help from google, and a whole lot of help and resources from Romeo Sid Vicious….here we are. Hope you guys dig the new site, and if you see things change over the next few weeks it’s because I’m still moving in!

Now, onto the music….the reason this site exists. This seasonal sampler is WAAAY overdue…but hey, it’s still spring…just LATE spring. I decided to make this a double disc to make up for the lack of recent posts, but also because there has been a lot of great music already released this year. Usually I spend a lot of time making links and such forth, I will not be doing that for this one just because I am still getting used to this layout. What I will say is almost everthing is from a new release except for the Earl Scruggs song (which is from the Three Pickers PBS special), and the Trio Pinto song (which is from the 2005 album Parallax View). Trio Pinto is Pinto Bennett, the guy who did all the songs on the new Reckless Kelly (which for some reason I forgot to include a song from on this here comp….just know it’s a killer album!). If you do happen to want more info about a particular song, just leave a comment. I’ll likely end up doing reviews for most of these albums anyway.

So without further delay…

    The Otis Gibbs track is outstanding. I ordered two of his CDs based on the strength of that song alone.

    Great transitions. Jus’ plain swell all around. On a strange/sweet note, got halfway down 2nd list and did a double take; One to DowntownVCU and the second to Tim Barry…who happens to be sitting right across from me. Lordy, you gotta love this town. Thanks for putting this together.
