ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The highly praised debut collection of folk songs from emerging recording artist Uncle Dave Huber

Dave's original songs have won praise from critics with their fresh take on traditional themes. "In the Deep Gray Snow" portrays lost love in an unearthly light and "Talking Orange Sunshine Explosion Blues" uses the traditional talking blues form to parody the American cultural climate of fear.

The song “Let the Mermaids Flirt with Me” was written by Mississippi John Hurt and the ballad “1913 Massacre” was written by Woody Guthrie.

The first traditional tune, “The Crawdad Song,” is a one of the biggest crowd pleasers at Dave’s shows. It comes straight out of the Cajun country sung originally by African Americans of the early twentieth century as a blues known as “Sweet Thing.” Fiddlers and banjo pickers adapted the tune and lyrics to its current form although many variants exist. It is a timeless piece of American folk music with themes that are just as applicable today as they were years ago.

The second track, “Moonshiner,” is another American folk song that is probably more popular today than ever. Through the combined efforts of Bob Dylan, Uncle Tupelo, Cat Power and many others this version of the song has achieved great notoriety among folk enthusiasts and singer/songwriter audiences.

It's wonderful to hear a young, fresh take on traditional forms, and doing it so
This cd is a great take on older styles. Really great energy permeates this cd, and it just smokes along, turning over old ground with a new shovel and discovering gold in every shovel-full.
For country/folk/singer/songwriter/blues/bobdylan/fans and lovers of genius everywhere. Seriously, this cd is awesome. My personal fave is Hard Times In Baltimore Town, but you discover your own favourites once you buy it.
