Album Notes
Buffalo, Jr. is a Connecticut-based band whose music reflects their take on the Golden Age of 1970’s rock drawing on their influences including the Stones, Faces, Allman Brothers, Delaney & Bonnie, Mr. Young and The Flying Burrito Brothers, with a taste of the more contemporaneous Black Crowes bleeding in.

The concept for Tattered Soul was to make a loose, not-to-perfect record filled with a track list of music the players would want to listen to, repeatedly. The album offers hard-driving electric guitar-based songs along with more country-tinged acoustic tunes with and array of keys and steel guitars sprinkled in to great effect. Many tracks would have sounded right at home on a good number of early ‘70s vinyl mainstays loved by the band.

Entering the secluded, log cabin studio overlooking the Connecticut River with 2-3 songs sketched out and a few ideas, Rick Stout wrote the balance of album’s 11 original tracks on-the-run during the recording sessions which consisted of roughly ten or so studio days. Several tracks sprung from a personal demons-inspired idea to recorded rhythm guitar, bass and drum track over a few days and were finished later when the right “feeling” struck the players Rick had hanging around the studio at the time. “Rhythm in Tow” was rough-cut recorded during the January 2018 New England blizzard with Rick and Eric snowed in at the mountain-top studio.
