John Moreland - High On Tulsa Heat
John Moreland's High On Tulsa Heat is the third solo release by one of the most respected "up and coming" songwriters working today. His songs remind me a lot of Otis Gibbs with a little early Ryan Adams thrown in. They are a little rough and crude and at the same time they feel as truthful and universal as a Sunday morning sermon. The songs are at their best when the arrangements are spare and open. Having said that, my favorite track is "Sad Baptist Rain" which is a great full on rock & roll ballad.
I'm adding "Sad Baptist Rain," "Losing Sleep Tonight, " "You Don't Care for Me Enough to Cry" to rotation.
