Phil Alvin – County Fair 2000 (1994)

Posted by on April 8, 2013 with No Commentsas

phPhil Alvin’s second solo date, County Fair 2000 continues his thorough exploration of Americana with references to tap dancing (“Low Down Rhythm”), Ellingtonia (“The Terror”), Delta blues (“That Thing”), New Orleans brass bands (“Danny Boy’s Mourning Sunset”), rockabilly/country (“County Fair 2000”), automobiles (“Wreck Your V-8 Ford”), and the Jimmy Reed-styled “Oh, Doctor.” Alvin has the good taste to employ an impressive list of guests including the Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Billy Boy Arnold, Cesar Rosas from Los Lobos, James Intveld, and members of the Blasters (without brother Dave Alvin.) County Fair 2000 leaves no doubt that Phil Alvin is a premier musicologist, preserving and staying true to what he loves.
