Album Notes
Hezekiah Goode plays music solidly in the vein of the old-time folk and country music that he grew up listening to in rural southern Missouri - music that has been heard in America forever. There are backwoods adventure songs like 'Half-Brother to Leviathan', a story of three young romancers home from World War II who find themselves crossways of a bull "fathered by a funnel cloud, foretold in Revelations". There are tales of economic desperation, as when Goode sings impressionistically in "Rosalie" of a mother with "children like fireflies flickering off" and landlords who "all seem to have tenement dreams". There are songs about starry-eyed fools and out-of-touch politicians. There are songs about unruly women - women with mean right hooks and hot-blooded wives who sneak off to dance burlesque. This is a collection of interesting and entertaining songs, but it's not just that. It's also a collection featuring some of the finest bluegrass and country musicians on Colorado's Front Range. This is a work that hearkens back aesthetically to the good old days of American country and folk music, but one that modern listeners will still find engaging, relevant, colorful and fun.
