Strong Like Bull but Sensitive Like Squirrel

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Erik Hage
Steel player Joe Goldmark proves on his many albums what many have always known: that the pedal steel has potential far outside the sphere of country music. On Strong Like Bull but Sensitive Like Squirrel, Goldmark who has also published a book about his chosen instrument not only breaks down genre barriers, but also shows the emotional range of the steel guitar.

The track is pure, gut-wrenching soul, bolstered by Stax horns.
