- Brilliant Performance and Production!
First off, the production quality - recording, mixing, and mastering:
Having several friends and acquaintances involved in studio recording and production of all types of music, I have heard uncompressed recordings on all of that glitzy-type audio equipment, and I must say, I was surprised when I heard the clarity and brightness of the strings on the first track of the record, and each song kept that energy up, really capturing the performances. I can imagine, with every track, hearing it played in a tavern, a countryside home, or an encampment.
The ONLY thing that I regret about this release, and what keeps it from being a 6/5 having first heard these strapping young men on the Townsends expose, was the absence of vocals! I am sensing a ripe opportunity for a follow-up album - where new tracks could be recorded and put to disc in both instrumental and vocal versions, perhaps digitally, as a bonus special edition, or whatever sounds the most fun for you all!
Keep up the Good Work, and thank you for keeping the musical history of this Great Nation alive! (Posted on 6/23/2018)
