Red Clay River "Cover Our Faces With Soot and Dreams"

Organic acoustic roots – not another industry label, just me trying to summarize the sound and style of Roanoke Virginia based Americana combo Red Clay River, you can agree or disagree with the summary by taking a listen yourself to a trio of the tracks below – however you choose to categorize there’s no escaping the quality, top notch stuff.

The songs are are self produced and released by the five piece – Daniel Bivins (vocals, guitar), Aaron Parker (guitar, vocals), Greg Szechenyi (upright bass), Camellia Delk (fiddle, viola, vocals), Marcus Hodges (banjo, mandolin, vocals, percussion), you can get your hands on more downloads and CD’s by following the links from the bands Myspace page or straight to the album here.

Red Clay River –  Rattlesnake Mountain
Red Clay River –  Hold On
Red Clay River –  Ain’t No Blues

The band have suffered a set back recently having their van and equipment stolen, if you like what you hear get yourselves some Red Clay River.

"You Really Got Me – The Story of the Kinks" (ABC Entertainment)

“You Really Got Me – The Story of the Kinks” is a recently released 90 minute DVD that uses a montage of footage including many rarely scene performances in both B&W and colour to take you on a trip through the legend of The Kinks however as the voice over and narrative are from a US perspective and because of the infamous ban handed down to the band for “reasons unknown” the period of bands exile from USA is skipped over.

Homage is paid to one of the most influential bands of the British Invasion era, using a combination of archive live performance, TV promos and back-stage footage, unlike a number of the other similar retrospective music DVD’s this one dispenses with a mass of critical commentary and concentrates on the footage interspersed with band interview segments – this is no bad thing as I imagine most purchasers of this type of music DVD are already fans and the basics do not need to be repeated for the sake of it, so you get plenty of visual – which is fine by me, there is nothing revelatory here but for for those of us who were led to The Kinks through their later day contemporaries, in my case The Jam / Paul Weller, the DVD contains some wonderful footage of the band who’s music and legacy have shaped and influenced so many. Buy @ Amazon
