James McMurtry "The Horses and the Hounds" [Texas Edition] 2LP $25.99
Opaque blue with white and blue swirl
In James McMurtry’s new effort, The Horses and the Hounds, the
acclaimed songwriter backs personal narratives with effortless
elegance (“Canola Fields”) and endless energy (“If It Don’t Bleed”). This
first collection in seven years spotlights a seasoned tunesmith in peak
form as he turns toward reflection (“Vaquero”) and revelation (closer
“Blackberry Winter”). Familiar foundations guide the journey. “There’s a
definite Los Angeles vibe to this record,” McMurtry says. “The ghost of
Warren Zevon seems to be stomping around among the guitar tracks.
Don’t know how he got in there. He never signed on for work for hire.”
The Horses and the Hounds is a reunion of sorts. McMurtry recorded
the new album with legendary producer Ross Hogarth (Ozzy
Osbourne, John Fogerty, Van Halen, Keb’ Mo’) at Jackson Browne’s
Groovemaster’s in Santa Monica, California. Hogarth recorded
McMurtry’s first two albums, Too Long in the Wasteland and Candyland
and later mixed McMurtry’s first self-produced album, Saint Mary of
the Woods. Another veteran of those three releases, guitarist David
Grissom (Joe Ely, John Mellencamp, Dixie Chicks), returns with some
of his fi nest work.
