Bart I own all the other Charlie Parr albums...somehow missed this one. Great singer-songwriter with nothing but a resonator and stomping boot. Great like always. Favorite track: Spike Driver Blues.

Brian Condra It is difficult to find fault with this album, and harder again to pick a "best song". That said for the moment my favorite track is Who killed Cock Robin, which is simply beautiful.

I discovered Charlie Parr a few weeks back by accident and I am currently really enjoying his work.

jabierbrauer The melancholic beauty of Mr. Parr’s Coal Creek March haunts me in the very best ways. My ears hear this version as a call-and-response between a living soul and their dear loved one’s (possibly-departed) spirit. Heavy and floating at the same time; but, isn’t that just like the veil between life and death/heaven and earth? Favorite track: Coal Creek March.

Charlie Parr Duluth, Minnesota

"Parr is scruffy and uncomfortable looking, with a longish beard and balding head. He dropped out of high school in the 1980s, but he looks older than that. He's pathologically deadpan in his delivery of in between song banter. The crowd really enjoyed his depressingly hilarious dead cat story. He never smiles." - Lucy Steigerwald
