Review

There´s one thing about Al Rose´s album "My first posthumous release" that I like quite a lot and it´s the fact that it feels like Al and his band are playing in my living room.
I think it´s the production that makes them so close in the speaker system, you get a feeling of having the band at home "hear and now" so to speak.
I´m not a huge fan of bluesy folkrock but when the music bring thoughts to Neil Young, I raise my eyebrows and listen carefully.
The rocking "All the trains are gone" could´ve been featured on Young´s 1979 album "Rust never sleeps", great song.
The 3-4 last songs on the album pays a visit in Johnny Cash land and they don´t fit in on this Bob Dylan-soundalike album.
A decent record that won´t make it´s way back into my speaker system I´m afraid.
