Pete Molinari "Authentic Country Blues"

Pete Molinari has a new album out of the 7th June A Train Bound for Glory hopefully he’ll pick up some thoroughly deserved wider recognition and sales from his recent TV début on Later – the new album follows on from his excellent 7 Track CD / 4 track 10″ Vinyl EP, Today Tomorrow and Forever plugged on the blog last year, just prior to it’s release Pete was in session with Bob Harris, talking country, Kerouac, Hank Williams, Woody Guthrie, Little Richard and recording in Nashville with the legendary Jordanaires who appeared on two tracks.

The session includes Tennessee Waltz from the EP, Brian Neville – Double Bass and Matt Radford – Snare Drum joined Pete Molinari – Guitar / Vocals for the trio of tracks.

Pete Molinari – BBC Radio 2

The blog’s now picking up a lot more traffic from overseas thanks to my fellow bloggers over “the pond” and “down under” who have been kind enough to link back to me, so it got me to thinking about running a sort of Best of British series of posts, featuring of the best of what Team Americana GB has to offer.

Though I’d kick it of with a plug for Pete Molinari, first came across Pete’s music thanks to the excellent What’s Kickin’ Volume 2 compilation album, you can check it out here at Stove Pony Records, Volume 1, 3 and 4 are fantastic too, crammed full of quality tracks and well worth buying.

The tracks here were played live on Mark Lamarr’s “Gods Jukebox” show on Radio 2 that aired on the 5th June and include some tunes that are to appear on Pete’s new EP that is due for release next week on CD and 10″ Vinyl.

I love Pete’s unique vocal and his retro- country blues style songs,excellent writing and great melodies, you can get your hands on all of Pete’s recordings at
Damaged Goods including the debut EP that was released on Will “Guitar Man” Hodgkinson’s Big Bertha Records, if you like vinyl the 45’s are definitely worth investing in.

Four tracks in total, everyone a gem including the title track of the upcoming release, Today Tomorrow and Forever, hope you enjoy them.

More Pete?
