To The Races

There's a painful, almost sadly scary tone to Bachmann's songwriting, whether solo or with Crooked Fingers. Listening to the words too closely will take you to dark places that he knows too well. That sweet lullaby is really a cry of longing from someone who knows exactly what loneliness is (He wrote this album while living in the back of his van, presumably down by the river). The best acoustic set since Joni was doing this back in the '60s, easily one of the best CDs so far this year, and a smart, smart addition by our proud local label. Rating: Yes
