"Strange New Town" will make you feel right at home.
If you like Ry Cooder’s first five or so LPs of Americana music, you’ll want to add this to your collection. Creighton Lindsay covers 13 songs- seven of the public domain and six penned by root music stalwarts such as Mississippi John Hurt, the Carter family and Memphis Minnie, that take us from old plank roads, broken down mills, Ireland, dodging bullets in the Spanish-American War, and over and across The Great Divide. You will hear country blues, fiddle tunes, Dixieland horns (with harmonica), Tex-Mex, pleasant folk songs, along with some kick ass rock n’ roll. Creighton plays slide guitars, mandolins, regular and tenor guitars, along with a button accordion (on the Tex-Mex style “If I Lose”). 20 or so very fine Oregon musicians lend their hands and voices to this exquisite recording. If you are going to buy just a single song or two, I’d certainly check out the rocker “Down The Old Plank Road” and “Hello Stranger” where Creighton’s daughter Claire sings just like an angel. But you could buy any track at random and be satisfied. This is a first rate offering and Mr. Lindsay’s 5th album.

I've been promoting blues and other roots music for close to 40 years now and I have managed some top names in the blues and zydeco world. Creighton Lindsay is the real deal. and some of the very best music I've heard in many a moon, bar none. He is reminiscent of Ry Cooder, not only in his sound and playing but in the depth of his mostly blues and Americana repertoire. I highly recommend 'checking out 'Strange New Town', a masterpiece, and you'll see how the musicianship, songwriting and fidelity are all stellar. Kudos Mr. Lindsay, and to your band. Really great stuff.
