When I’m Dead
This remarkable New Zealand couple have been nominated by
Anne George for induction into America’s Old Time Country Music Hall of
Fame, and that shall happen.  They are coming to America for the full
week of the LeMars festival, so it’s going to be an interesting
experience to not only hear this couple perform with acoustic
instruments (their recordings are pretty much electric) because the
songs they sing, especially with their gifted voices, sound good with
any kind of accompaniment.  They sent me two CD’s, so I’m reviewing this
one early on in the hopes the Rural Roots Music Commission might like
what they are doing.  Once that’s done, they will go to Dale Eichor on
KWMT Radio in Fort Dodge, Iowa.  This is country music in the Hank
Thompson style, kind of like the Mickey Gilley style.  Whaaaat?  Mickey
Gilley? Yes, Gilley will be with us in LeMars too, and he too is going
acoustic.  What fun that is going to be hearing these incredibly gifted
artists performing WHEN THE ELECTRICTY GOES OFF.  Steel guitars get
replaced by the Dobro.  Electric guitars replaced by acoustic Martins. 
Drums replaced by bones or spoon players, or whatever.  Fiddles will be
fiddles wherever they are, same with those acoustic rhythm guitars. 
This is going to be a fun experience for all of us. This CD is
remarkable, they used some extremely good backing all the way through. 
Kim is a guy if you were wondering, and he wrote “Something Between Us”
incredibly good love song.  Wait til’ you hear him sing “Cool Water” ask
for it at LeMars, you won’t be disappointed.  And for Annette, listen
to “I Heard The Bluebird Sing.” Hang on RRMC, good music headed your
way, especially the duets.
