Friday, 27th August 2010
Here at Loose we are pretty obsessed with the late great Townes Van Zandt and there's a new Townes compilation "Riding The Range" hitting the shops on 13th September on Righteous/Cherry Red Records.The album features Peter Bruntnell playing "second Lovers Song" and Danny & The Champs playing "For The Sake Of The Song".Ralph McLean just dropped the Danny tune on his BBC Ulster Show - hear it HERE
“there’s always been a sense of a tasteful restraint to the studio albums but unleashed on stage with their raspy vocals and heartland rock and soul, they’re like a power station on steroids.”
“This is a proper old school live album, makes you want to go to a gig”
ROBERT ELMS, BBC LONDON
“songs like This Is Not a Love Song and and Stay True which come at you one after the other; are destined to make ‘new fans’ wonder why these kids aren’t topping the bill at Glastonbury with their magic formula and bittersweet songs.”
