Album Notes
With an organic backdrop of acoustic guitar and harmonica, along with Tony Garnier (Bob Dylan) on bass and Tommy Mandel (Bryan Adams) on organ, Blood In The USA, the album, is an Americana masterpiece. Recorded live in an all analog format by producer Perry Margouleff, it delves into dust bowl era themes but brings it up-to-date, blending a modern edge with the sort of unblinking grit and realism that originated with the likes of Woody Guthrie and Cisco Houston. Sung in a voice somewhere between 1962 Dylan, 1982 John Prine and Ghost Of Tom Joad-era Springsteen, Thom Chacon buoys his poetic verse and all-American sentiment with the kind of memorable characters you just can’t shake.
