ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
THE PULL's twelve evocative songs range from the unadorned guitar picking of 'Sorrow' and the sepia dustbowl snapshot of 'Sharecroppers' to thrilling all-out gospel attack on 'Lonely People' and the album's title track.

'High Times & Low Times' is a pithy social commentary, while 'North Star (& The Drinking Gourd)' reminds us of the Afro-American slaves' longed-for heavenly destination. Kreg thinks about settling down on the touching 'Aileen', but on the exhilarating Afro-Celtic 'The Man Without a Care', the road - the musician's home - beckons. In each of these and the other songs on this superlative album, Kreg draws on his richly varied past - sailor, farmhand, teacher, mountain guide - and his current view of his homeland, to evoke vivid, sharply poetic scenes of his America, scenes that have a poignant relevance for us all.


'My album of the year'

Robert Elms, BBC Radio London


'One of the few albums which warrants the listener to hang on every word ... without exception, I found every song totally absorbing.'
