Disc two brings us the only two things an honest man ever needs: work and God.  Soul abounds in these tracks start to finish from back in the day when being Irish was to be oppressed.  Now it just means you’re expected to celebrate St. Paddy’s day like a baffoon and carry on a hearty tradition of freckle fetish. With the other tracks I feel like I’m listening to premixed tracks from Moby’s album Play.  Just that sort of southern, sweltering, heart-squeezing music. Like grit under your nails and baptismal water in your hair: righteous.

This is the first disc in a four-party box set that’s everything folk music.  I’m certain I have the booklet for this somewhere so I’ll hold off on getting long-winded and let the disc side and track titles do the talking.  I hope you enjoy this little slice of Americana.
