Musicianship of the highest order here. As bluegrass arrangements go, this is perfectly well done and isn't particularly unusual although its brevity is refreshing; but the quality of the performances recorded here is undeniably excellent (thh). added to station 8/19/2010 3:43:52 PM

Tom and I provided most of the background music but Ashley really shines here. I was particurlarly happy with the background vocal arrangements. I've always felt that the true test of an artist is to strip all the production away and see how they sound. I've heard Ashley playing solo she's fantastic and audiences agree. (awr) Was a bit slow to recognize how good a lyricist she is and I love how she challenges the audience here. She has as much raw ability as anybody I've ever been around.

This is one of the few songs I've ever heard that I loved right away and I couldn't stop listening to. From the simple but elegant melody to the emotional and clever lyrics, this song has it all. Ashley pulls off the vocals without trying to show off while providing the passion and pain of the song. (awr) Agreed. My memory of recording this is that she turned the producer from a skeptic to a believer in about one stanza. (thh). added to station 6/29/2009 7:07:48 PM

Untold Story
I'm happy that 'Untold Story' is moving back up the charts. (awr) It's the title track of the Bridge CD. Oliver Moore came up with the title, which was appropriate for all of us at the time. He later crafted the CD cover a bag without an owner, the arch-covered door at the end of a leaf-covered bridge that for all the world looks like the haunted Flinderation Tunnel (thh). added to station 6/29/2009 10:43:36 PM

Gena Perala
American Way
The purists won't like it because it's too produced and perhaps a little artificial in instrumentation; the A&R guys won't like it because the song lacks the big beat, is too cliched and could use an editor to pare it down some. But Ms. Perala doesn't hesitate to throw everything into this oft-accurate commentary on American life, and doesn't seem to care what anybody thinks. The song with its sparse guitar sound is undoubtedly beefed up when done live and becomes something else entirely. To me, that alone means Score!(thh) added to station 5/15/2008 7:14:09 PM

Another of Ms. Wade's tunes appears on the charts, but this one is the most complete and best thought-out. This slow-boil song fills up dead space that leaves you feeling empty elsewhere.

Untold Story
A song collaborated by Allen and Oliver, worked out in a matter of a few hours when playing sitting directly next to one another. The rest of the band found its way pretty quickly and with the exception of the break and a few lines it was done in a night or two. Oliver declared it the CD's title song during a rehearsal break.

the dreaming dead
I realize this song has been up for a long while, but upon further review, I find this alt-country tune to be irresistable. Don't be surprised if this isn't draped over the soundtrack to a David Lynch movie. The song comes to us at a quick mid-tempo, the instrumentation languishing long whole notes over the drums. Ms. Sykes serves the music well, not trying too hard, and sounding as luxurious as the music. Terrific (thh) added to station 11/9/2007 9:32:23 PM

- Here is a classic example of a song whose instruments sound so good they almost bury the vocal. No matter, the recording is tight and sounds like it has weight to it that a lot of rock songs lack.

Everybody's Got Their Own Part To Play
The simplest songs are often the best. Ms. Wright gives us a steady pounding of fortissimo quarter-time chords on her piano to remind us of that here. A tastefully done number, that features some measured playing by the band and some interesting shimmering sounds for a wash. My only gripe is that the recording could sound clearer, but this is a first-rate number (thh). added to station 6/28/2007 4:12:56 AM

No style or musical instrument escapes Amy Caldwell and her troupe of fine musicians, whose biggest problem is in trying to fit too much onto every recording. Some of the recordings themselves could be better, and tarnish some really excellent material across the board.

Allen, remember that incredible Kawasaki speed-of-sound motorcycle you bought about 10 years ago? This is the song to listen to while riding it.

I know this song: it's the one that will never make it to No. 1 because it's too good; Cassell's voice floats smoothly over the jazz acoustics, but I'm especially enamored with the use of low strings, the upright bass and the extended chorus. Played it back immediately. Can't recommend this enough (thh). Well said. Something that jumps out at me is the understated tasteful production.

Parchman Farm
The old blues man Bukka White did time on Parchman Farm, still the maximum security lockup in Mississippi, and the inspiration for Mose Allison's up-beat jazz version that E covers here. E's portrayal of the brutish life there takes us a long, long way from Allison's playfully cool tune. Stripped down to E's measured voice, the tune's double-tracked upper- and lower-range harmonicas provide all the imagery you need to understand what was really behind Allison's lyric.

I didn't choose this song because of the name of the artist. I doubt we are related. Such a nice mix of melodies coming together from the vocals, violin, and guitar.

This vocal drips with sadness, reminds me of those Appalachian people we knew growing up who sung while doing something you know is killing them.

(awr) First note to last, we have a tremendous track here, right down to the somewhat surprising gospel fade out. Boehm's voice strikes home right away. One of the better all-around pieces I've heard on IAC (thh). added to station 3/24/2006 8:03:09 PM

Kevin Montgomery
Tennessee Girl
I can't get this song out of my head. I love the line "Had all the hey dude that I could stand". The great background vocals from Trisha Yearwood make for an addicting chorus. I bought Kevin's 2:30 am CD and after several listens I now have more of his songs stuck in my head. I think what sets Kevin apart from some country artists is most of his work is self written/co-written. I someone asked me to describe his music I would say "Take Jackson Browne, Bruce Springsteen, Crowded House and add some Country influences." 2:30 am is a first rate CD and I highly recommend it. (awr) This is the better side of big-time country music, the songs with the up-tempo, dotted-sixteenth rhythm are the best ones, the torch carrier dating back to the hillbilly music from whence it came.

The Grip Weeds
Sight Unseen
A glorious little trip back to 1965. These guys have solid songs based to lesser or greater extent exclusively on 60s pop. It's fun, and this is the best of the bunch (thh). I could listen to this all day. These guys really have it together. What a great sound. (awr) added to station 12/16/2005 7:16:33 PM

The Dimestore Poets
Sweet Things
What a cool sound. Light hearted blues with clever lyrics and nice harmonies. (awr) No doubt this is perfect for a Saturday night on Sixth Street in Austin, not to mention the local publishing houses (thh). added to station 1/4/2006 9:57:58 PM

Tim Moyer
Sister Sunshine
Great acoustic sound. It's all here. Good vocals, music, and lyrics. (awr) I'm only halfway through the song, and I'm wondering where the executives are. This track has pretty much everything you want in a singer-songwriter, the mark of a professional artist. It's just a matter of time if he just keeps hanging in there (thh). added to station 12/27/2005 3:13:41 AM

Steve Ison
The Strangest Feeling
There are many good songs on Steve's site. I like the unexpected direction of the melody of 'The Strangest Feeling'. (awr) Normally, I'm not fond of what sound like synth-strings, but here they're used for a central purpose to totally darken lyrics that without it would easily be construed for mid-60s happy music. Extremely clever (thh). added to station 12/23/2005 10:05:47 PM

Bridge
Rubber Eraser
Oliver Wrote: "Down by the old willow/ 6 a.m. fellow/ is carving the name that he loves/ to the back of his arm/ with old number two heated rubber eraser". I think I lost a little of my hearing trying to get the right feedback sound on the guitar. (awr) My memory rehearsing it is that I completed the fill in the dead spot, hit the crash and fell completely over on my right side because of a back spasm so bad I could barely breathe, to the initial hysterics of everyone else. I have heard more than one person whose opinions I respect say they liked this best of all the Bridge tunes (thh). added to station 11/27/2005 4:00:42 PM

The Easy Tigers
Cancel the Day
Ms. Abi Hercules and her band are onto something; reggae feel with Appalachian instrumentation backing her capable vocals. It's the kind of tune that would have been perfect in the Meck. (thh) added to station 12/10/2005 8:10:05 PM

The Spares
Mexico
Love the vocals and the acoustic work. (awr)..Love this song because the snare-dominated percussion style, slide and vocals bear at least as much in common with early 20th-century Delta music as they do to anything contemporary. Missouri-native Jodee Lewis sounds marvelous and is right at home here. (thh) added to station 11/19/2005 8:00:45 PM

Allen Rodgers
Whispers
Produced in a hurry on my home studio. (awr) Oh, you're just being modest again...I always liked the song and thought it was a step up all the way around. On the whole, the song represents progress for the composer in the context of the other stuff being done at the time. (thh) added to station 3/22/2006 8:10:31 PM

Allen Rodgers
Green Roses
My favorite post-Bridge song of Allen's and quite possibly my personal favorite of his, period. Band performances are first-rate, not to mention it being my own best work. The attention to detail in not completely repeating the music as the phrasing plays through makes the tune seem even more fluid and musical than maybe it otherwise might.

Bridge
As He Falls
My favorite song from the Bridge CD that isn't Allen's and is located between tracks 1 and 3. Actually, I just like it, in large part because of the drastic dynamics changes and mood, as well as the insistent guitar runs. A departure from most of the stuff we do.
