Acoustic Magazine “If You Want to Go to Sleep, Go to Bed” CD Review

2010.05.12

Another great review of If You Want to Go to Sleep, Go to Bed from Britain, this time from Acoustic Magazine (issue 38):

Named after a favorite saying of banjo player Charlie Lowe, Abair and Robertson present a collection of old time material. The vocals are surprising, as Robertson, featured on the cover, doesn’t look like that sort whiskey-and-cigarettes voice should come out of, and are addictive, especially on I Truly Understand and the well known but speedy version of Old Joe Clark. The real charm in this album is that although the musicians work tightly together, it sounds like it was recorded in someone’s back yard. There’s nothing not to like here; the musicianship is excellent, the rhythm infectious and the style abundant. As the title suggests, it’s not for the tired. http://hunterrobertson.com/ifyouframe.html
