Various Artists – Absolutely Irish

Absoulutely Irish Soundrack

2008-09-23

Truly an amazing lineup in this one-time event. This release on Compass Records probably has something to do with their acquisition of Dirty Linen. –P Luke Doucet And The White Falcon: Blood's Too Rich (2008) In his twenties, he was noted as the backbone of Vancouver's famed indie country rock band Veal, where he first picked up his "guitar god" reputation, and now he's one of the most in demand guitarists in Canada. Three solo albums later, Luke has emerged as a champion storyteller and fearless musician. Produced by Luke himself, Blood's too rich features his band, The White Falcon, named after the model of his beloved Gretsch guitar. Take the weary eponymous hero of opener "Long Haul Driver", on the road for 2000 miles, or the in-crisis laser heading west in "Motorbike". These tales are married to Neil Young and Crazy Horse and The Band inspired swaggering stompers, loping, loose guitar showcases and delicate acoustic numbers. –Joe Parsaca
