Re: The New OK - 10/2/2020 (Vinyl 12/18)

If Go Go Boots was the country soul album, I’ve started to think of this one as their 1960s Atlantic Records/Stax/Muscle Shoals record.

Re: The New OK - 10/2/2020 (Vinyl 12/18)

Grievance Merchants is top shelf Cooley to me and I guess Sarah’s Flame just doesn’t match it for me. I really didn’t like Perilous Night when it came out, but I find this new mix to be really enjoyable.

I think you have a point with Sarah’s Flame, but it’s also historical as well as topical and it has great wordplay and a killer groove. The Perilous Night may not fare as well in a few years though despite being a great song. You never know.

Re: The New OK - 10/2/2020 (Vinyl 12/18)

The only overtly political songs on the album are Sarah’s Flame and, of course, The Perilous Night. The New OK and Watching the Orange Clouds are certainly socially co copy’s but I would not call them political as both sound deeply personal to these ears.

Re: The New OK - 10/2/2020 (Vinyl 12/18)

I suspect PH has spent a lot more time than we appreciate picking songs and sequencing them for this release. At least as to sequencing, Patterson has a well deserved reputation for the time, care and thought he puts into sequencing. If I try to take a stab at the feel of this album, it's warm nigh...

This is definitely a collection of B sides/left overs. Sea Island Lonely is one of my favorite Patterson songs in awhile. The 3 consecutive Patterson songs on the backside are all pretty solid. The front half is officially Neil Young “Monsanto Years” territory. I thought The Unraveling was pretty c...

Did anyone catch the premiere of Perry Mason on HBO? Definitely has potential. Oddly it’s a gritty 1930’s noir with nothing to do with the original series at all but does harken back to the source material.
