Over at Country Standard Time you can find my (much delayed) review of the Carter Brothers recent release; I say ‘much delayed’ because the music was sent to me in mid-February and it took some time for me to get around to writing about it. That is no reflection on the album as it caught my ear immediately.
Tim and Danny Carter have been working professionally together and individually for the best part of three decades. The Carter Brothers are another of the many under-known enterprises making a living in the roots world, outfits that should and could be more familiar if only they would compromise to make music more palatable to mainstream listeners. http://www.countrystandardtime.com/d/cdreview.asp?xid=4842 will get you to the review. It doesn’t hurt that they name-check both Guy Clark and “Ring of Fire” in the title track.
As always, thanks for visiting Fervor Coulee. Donald
