Michael Rank makes continues his bid for the title of “hardest working Americana artist” with another wonderful album of original material, Red Hand is his sixth full length release in a little over four years on which he continues to roam the fertile land of American roots music this time “mapping sounds of the 1970s”.
Rank is again joined by Mount Moriah vocalist Heather McEntire who shares vocal duties 50:50 providing the perfect vocal counterpoint to Ranks world weary voice, there’s no credit to the band Stag on this album and it could be credited as a Rank & McEntire – but hey, maybe their saving that for the next release?
Highly recommended, start…..
