Omnivore Recordings Revisits The Past WIth New Releases From Uncle Walt's Band And NRBQ

On March 9th, Omnivore Recordings released the first compilation from the legendary bluegrass trio, Uncle Walt's Band. The new album titled "Anthology: Those Boys From Carolina, They Sure Enough Could Sing..." features 21-tracks, beginning with the wonderful harmonizing of "Seat Of Logic" from the band's 1974 debut album, "Blame It On The Bossa Nova." You really appreciate the classic, acoustic tones of "Dish Wiped Clean" and "Don't You Think I Feel Good Too" as their sound was just pure Americana/roots music. Their second album "An American In Texas" is highlighted by the tracks "Deeper Than Love" and "Bluebird," while "Stay With That One" and "Holding On" come from their third album "6-26-79." This new compilation also features 5 previously unreleased songs, like live versions of "Gimme Some Skin" and "One Meatball." The real gem of this new release is the beautiful acoustic demo version of "I'll Come Knockin'," as you can feel the genuine tone in their delivery.
