The Pekin Tapes were recorded 10/1973, 2 years before Pavlov’s Dog’s official debut ‘Pampered Menial’, and intended to become their debut album. They show the variety of the early Pavlov’s Dog, with no producer involved. ABC Records signed them on the strength of the Pekin Tapes for the highest amount ever payed to a newcomer act, but sent them back to studio: ’75 ‘Pampered Menial’ became a milestone in Progressive Rock. The studio in Pekin/IL burned down, the Pekin Tapes were lost, until 2014 a copy was discovered. The 4 bonus tracks (3/1973) are the earliest Pavlov’s Dog tracks ever discovered.
Considered one of the finest Americana musicians performing today, with a musical voice grown directly from roots in Appalachian and Louisiana soil, Dirk Powell is set to release his fourth solo album and Sugar Hill Records debut, Walking Through Clay. The album finds Powell, whom Steve Earle calls “the greatest old-time banjo player alive,” uniting the hard-hitting drums of guests like Levon Helm with homegrown electric guitars, fiddles, amplified fretless banjos and Creole accordions. Barriers between styles are cooked off and what remains is a fearlessly emotional portrait of rural American music presented as only Powell could.
Broken Bones has been pieced together over the last three years in collaboration with former John Butler Trio drummer Michael Barker, but this doesn’t sound like a weekend warrior project. Instead, Broken Bones, somewhat surprisingly, is an assured, confident debut.It starts on a subdued note with the slow-building Overflow, which lays out the sort of territory the rest of the album will cover: tasteful arrangements, rich harmonies, and a vaguely alt-country influence of the Wilco/Wheat variety.

“While most of Americana’s modern practitioners are busy searching for another rough edge to sand down, Curtis McMurtry’s debut is refreshingly unsymmetrical and beautiful. Like few songwriters his age, he truly understands what a big tent American music actually is.” – Joe Pug
