Album Notes
#65 in Top 70's Folk DJ Chart for "Song & Album" in April 2009!

Blues Art Studio by Brian Harman (Austria)
“Simply Syncopatingly Stunning! The truly great atmospheric mixture of racy, fast paced saucy Dixieland Jazz and Ragtime is wonderfully evoked; underpinned by rural folk roots that are more than liberally sprinkled with the lazy hazy untroubled air of turn of the century New Orleans”

Victory Review Acoustic Magazine by Tom Petersen
"This is a terrific record start to finish, and is so good it should easily cross genres – everybody’s gonna like it!" by Graham Clarke
“Carmichael is a master on both guitar and banjo and his warm, expressive vocals are ideal for the material.” “If you’re like me, you’ll find yourself listening to Queen Fareena over and over.”

Rootstime by Freddy Celis (Holland)
The result is a strong blues recording with a real vintage feel to it, which makes you sit up straight and listen, because these guys are really good!

Review by Terry Roland from The Phantom Tollbooth
“This integrated approach has rarely been used this successfully. The Band and Dylan's Basement Tapes come to mind. This one is highly recommended for those who love American roots music and are on the look-out for something original and innovative, if not new under the sun.”

Folk & Acoustic Music Exchange by Mark S. Tucker
“This is 100% old-timey St. Louis / N'orleans stuff, with most of the tracks hand-picked from among some of the best the hoary estimables wrote…especially when they have a smart-ass slant to 'em.” by Ray Dorsey
“His work on guitar and 6-string banjo here is majorly smokin’ and his vocals are a joy to behold, like Brian Setzer if he was born in 1930 and then got real, real good. Genres like Cajun, country roots, ragtime & Dixieland explode into a Technicolor panorama.”

Midwest Record by Chris Spector
“This is simply a snazzy, off beat good time that takes you on a tour of America’s neglected back roads with the spirit of John Hurt leading the way. The open eared owe it to themselves to check it out."
