Toasty Taranna #26: Sonic Boom #10: Ryan Adams & The Cardinals – Follow The Lights
Sometimes Sonic Boom puts out used Ryan Adams CDs for $2.99, always a sure bet I’ll rescue them – this was one of those times! This EP is definitely laidback, country-tinged, and full of that Adams sound that I just love. I especially appreciated the piano work on this release. The Alice In Chains cover is one I loved a lot! My bias is probably showing at this point, so I’ll just leave you with this:
“The EP contains three new songs and four live studio recordings, including a cover of the Alice in Chains’ song, Down in a Hole. It was produced by then-Cardinals member James Candiloro. The EP includes a re-recorded version of the song Blue Hotel, which originally appeared on Willie Nelson’s Songbird album. This Is It was previously recorded for Rock n Roll, If I Am a Stranger for Cold Roses and Dear John – which was co-written by Ryan Adams and Norah Jones – for Jacksonville City Nights.” (Wiki)
