Overview

Never one to rely on formula, Case mixes his brand of incisive folk-rock with some simpatico musical styles for his seventh solo album, a sort of companion to its predecessor, Full Service No Waiting. Using a folk-rock base for songs like "Paradise Etc." and "Black Dirt & Clay," Case continues to ponder his past in song -- from East Coast kid to California musician and seeker. Aiding the new dimension are a folk-blues boogie with horns, "Cool Drink O' Water," and a smoky cabaret number, "Lost in Your Eyes." An old-fashioned Mexican folk melody moves the spiritually directed "Cold Trail Blues"; there's only one of his signature long narrative pieces ("Two Heroes"). For the second time running, producer Andrew Williams guides a slight departure and successful collaboration.
