The Long Ryders - Psychedelic Country Soul Import Vinyl 2LP
The Long Ryders Psychedelic Country Soul Import Vinyl 2LP
Psychedelic Country Soul is their first new album in over thirty years. The stunning album follows hot on the heels of the deluxe reissue treatment given to two classic Long Ryders long players, State of Our Union and Two-Fisted Tales. The band featured Sid Griffin on guitar, autoharp, and harmonica, Stephen McCarthy on guitar, steel guitar, mandolin, and banjo, Tom Stevens, bass, and Greg Sowders, playing drums and percussion.
With a sound reminiscent of the Buffalo Springfield and The Flying Burrito Brothers but with a harder edge, they anticipated the alternative country music of the 1990s by a decade. Featuring 11 new Long Ryders compositions and a tribute cover of the late great Tom Petty's song 'Walls', this is a Long Ryders for the 21st century; kicking off with the anthemic 'Greenville', a track which proves the band haven't lost any of that magic guitar interplay.
'Molly Somebody' is an eclectic pop tune that doesn't neglect any of their country and rock sensibilities, while the likes of 'What the Eagle Sees' reflects the energy of early punk and power pop that so informed them in the early days. You can still hear their personal connection with the music of the 1960s', but as ever The Long Ryders aren't a band who live in the past.
