Burke Long

Silver Queen

This infectious

record has the

homemade feel of

mom’s Sunday dinner.

North Carolina

boy Burke Long evokes writing models

like Rodney Crowell and Gene Clark for

the almost California country of “About

Love,” which features pedal steel from a

very able John Macy. But Long’s country

rock strain is more Marshall Crenshaw or

Richie Furay era Poco, gutsier, than flower

power or Dead.

The sassy “Downtown” shows the best

parts of Elvis Costello may be in the mix.

But Long is still proudly country even with

nods toward Bo Diddley in “Big Ol’ Town”

and to blues in “Down In The Country.”

These tunes also confirm the first impression

of him as a player of sureness and

creativity, especially when squeezing out

some nasty sweet Tele licks on the latter tune

or laying a crackling series of rockabilly

lines under an arrangement that would

have pleased Elvis and the Jordanaires on

the title cut.

Some of Long’s songs don’t let go. “Old

Music Man” would have been a sure fit for

Waylon Jennings and, neither derivative

nor imitative, the album’s signoff “Almost

Free” could almost have come from Gene

Clark himself. It caps an excellent album.
