> > 1. WOVEN HAND - same (Glitterhouse)
> Given the other discs on the list, I wanna know more about this
> Woven Hand one.
i'm not good in describing music, writting in english (i had to learn english by myself as
i learned Russian and French in primary and secondary school) but i'll try.
Most of the people thin that Secret South is weakest 16 Horsepower album but i'd bring
that one with myself on desert island. Woven hand is as you may know David Eugene Edwards
side project and cd was released on Glitterhouse. A few mothns after WH 16 HP release
Folklore. Woven hand sound is very similiar to Secret south and i guess that David Eugene
Edwards didn't want to record two similiar albums so he formed Woven hand to release songs
similiar to Secret south and 16 Horsepower released very dark album which shows their
vision of folk music.
Most of my friends who have this album said it is not on their top as some songs are
much stronger than the rest and general opinion is that if he combined some Woven hand and
some 16 Horsepower songs ti would be masterpiece. A few songs from Woven hand album were
in my Winamp a whole year. Same for the Okkervil river and Songs:Ohia. Recommendation for
all collectors on this list is
Songs:Ohia - 10/09/00 013, Tilburg, Holland. Much better than Mi sei apparso come un
fantasma and shows the best side of S:O (it was concert with full band).
Some other albums from my list are very interesting and i'm really sorry that they are
unnoticed by collectors adn wider audience. Nina Nastasia, Jay Munly, Greyhound soul,
Okkervil river, Califone, Great Crusades ... and Mickey Newbury have GREAT albums and they
deserve more attention.
Also, DO NOT forget to drink one vodka and play at least one song by Townes Van Zandt
1st of January. This is least we can do to remember him.
Happy new year to all !
