Buddy Miller is a legend of American music collaborating and enhancing the magical work of Emmylou Harris, Shawn Colvin, Lucinda Williams and Steve Earle and many others over a lengthy and colourful career.
A musical everyman as player, songwriter and producer.
He is a unique talent and character.
This release marks Buddy taking an overdue centre stage role in a Dylanesque “Rolling Thunder Revue” collection of sterling talents and disparate musical styles with “The Majestic Silver Strings”.
It presents a showcase of the best in current American musical playing and songwriting with great mainstream appeal and polished wonderment proudly on display.
This CD and bonus DVD is a triumph of “Americiana”music, which sets the standard for this fast growing style of music.
I simply loved it in it’s appeal ability and divergence of styles which works as a unified whole.
The playing is brilliant throughout.
The singing crisp, and effecting.
All of the songs are emotional and heartfelt with standout songs “Cattle Call”, “Why I’m Walking” and “Bury me Not on The Lone Prairie” being great fun.
I loved “I want To Be With You Always” and “Freight Train”.
Buddy I have become a fan.
Listen to this and you will become one too.
Long may you run!
