ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Tor takes its name from old Celtic, tor. A tor is a mountain pinnacle or peak. Those with names are often sacred or bear special meaning to those who so named it. This album is a showcase of Jim Wade's interest in music. It is primarily Blues based, but carries in it, early rock influences of the late sixties as well. It's been described as sounding like surfer rock, the Doors, Dire Straits (Time and a Reason) and Black Sabbath (White Wolf).
All that said, two other tunes, Lady of the Tor and Long Ago are distinctly different. Lady of the Tor is written in an early 19 century mindset of old Irish seafarers and performed with traditional instruments. Long Ago evokes an atmosphere of ancient myths of the British Isles and combines acoustic and electronic instrumentation and layers of voices to create a fantasy and mythological aura.
To end the CD Lady by The Tor is a reprise of Lady of the Tor, but performed by the main band on modern instrumentation.

High quality and original
The Tor is well worth the time (and a few bucks). High quality production, some very original songs and interesting touches in every song. Nice booklet with lyrics and art. The Dorety Brothers maintain the heavy prog feel to Jim Wade's bluesy tunes. White Wolf by Chris Dorety is heavy duty, and sure to please the neighbors at high volume.

50s Rock
If you like 50s style rock, blues, and surfer rock this album is for you. I can hear Robby Krieger (The Doors) influence throughout the album. Sound is great. It gets 4 stars because I would like to hear a little more prominent vocals. Worth your time for sure.
