Ethan Johns & The Black Eyed Dogs – Silver Liner (2015)

Having released his debut album in 2012, following up with the conceptual, Adams-produced The Reckoning, Silver Liner is now his third, recorded live with a core band consisting of bassist Nick Pino, drummer (and producer) Jeremy Stacey and pedal steel legend BJ Cole and put down over the space of just ten days. All self-penned material, it embraces both homegrown folk and American the influences often clearly out in the open, case in point being the title track which (featuring Gillian Welch on backing) even Neil Young might be persuaded it was one of his own forgotten tracks from the After The Goldrush-era archives, right down to whiny vocal and trademark fiery guitar solo.
