(180 gr. schwarzes Vinyl im Standard-Cover mit DL-Card) John Oates, eine Häflte der der legendären Hall & Oates, legt eine Americana-Platte vor. Klassischer Delta & Country Blues und Ragtime, dazu neue Stücke von Oates, die sich nahtlos einfügen.nnJohn Oates, eine Häflte der der legendären Hall & Oates, machte endlich die Platte, die er immer machen wollte. Arkansas ist eine Americana-Platte. Von seinem neuen Heim in Nashville, Tennesse aus tauchte er eine Dekade lang tief in die Geschichte der Roots-Musik. Es gibt Interpretationen von Emmett Millers Anytime von 1924 oder den Jimmie Rodgers Tune Miss the Mississippi and You von 1932. Traditional Delta, Country Blues und Ragtime huldigen Mississippi John Hurt und Blind Blake. Dazu kommen neue Stücke von Oates, die sich nahtlos einfügen. The sonic glue that holds the project together is called The Good Road Band. The impressive lineup consists of legendary mandolin players Sam Bush, pedal steel innovator Russ Pahl, world famous electric guitar picker Guthrie Trapp, bass veteran Steve Mackey, cello virtuoso Nat Smith, and the groove of percussionist Josh Day. Combine that ensemble with Oates' warm and personal storytelling, and you have a one-of-a-kind experience that is authentic and unforgettable. The project originally began as a tribute to Oates' idol, Mississippi John Hurt . It evolved organically, during a series of Nashville recording sessions, into a unique, retrospective collection drawing from a wide range of Oates' musical influences. Asked about the style and sound of Arkansas, he say's , It's like Dixieland dipped in bluegrass and salted with Delta blues. The title track is propelled by a driving production that frames evocative images of the mist rising off the mighty Mississippi River and the expansiveness of the cotton fields in America's heartland. With the essence of roots music at its core, vintage and modern recording techniques are woven throughout the album. With this incredible band, Oates shines a light on popular songs from America's past long before the birth of rock 'n' roll. TRACKS: 1. Anytime 2. Arkansas 3. My Creole Belle 4. Pallet Soft and Low 5. Miss the Mississippi and You 6. Stack O Lee 7. That'll Never Happen No More 8. Dig Back Deep 9. Lord Send Me 10. Spike Driver Blues

Pure Prairie League is an American country-rock band whose roots began between 1964 and 1969 in Waverly, Ohio with Craig Fuller, Tom McGrail, Jim Caughlan and John David Call. The band's name was chosen in 1970 by McGrail after a 19th century temperance union mentioned in the 1939 film Dodge City. The band has had a long run, active from the 1970s through the late 1980s and was revived in the late 1990s for a time, then again in 2004. Although the band has its roots in Waverly, Ohio, it was actually formed in Columbus, and had its first success in Cincinnati. Fuller (who would also play with J.D. Blackfoot and Little Feat), McGrail, Caughlan and Call had played together on and off since high school. An early pre-Pure Prairie League recording was a George Ed Powell penned composition, "Break Me Down to Pieces" with Powell (acoustic guitar and vocal), Fuller (lead guitar and vocal), McGrail (drums), Kenny May (bass) and David Workman (pedal steel guitar).
