CDs by Paul Burch

Paul Burch has primarily been known for his authentic vintage country sound with music that could easily coexist with recordings from the '50s in previous releases including those on Bloodshot Records. That remains true on his latest effort, but the emphasis here is on rhythm and blues.

On the title track, Waiting For My Ship and Saving All My Saturday Nights, Burch delivers his familiar hard core country sound.

With Like A Train , Honey Blue and particularly Paul Burch's Rattlesnake Daddy Blues, Burch proves himself equally at ease with R&B.

Fallin', Lead Me On and Little Bells have a '50s pop feel. Burch goes folksy on Ballad of Henry and Jimmy .

The one song that defies categorization is Down To The Blackmarket, which has more in common with Harry Nilsson's late '60s, early '70s work than the older sound usually associated with Burch.

This stylistically diverse, excellent collection will satisfy fans of Burch's traditional country sound.
