But, Smither shook things up. During the making of the record, each musician at some point wore a different hat. The engineer played the piano. The drummer played guitar. Chris took a Chuck Berry standard and turned it on its head and it came out in a minor key. They added in another surprise cover (you’ll just have to listen to find out what it is). And to top it off, yes, Chris went electric.
As most Smither aficionados know, he recognizes great songs by other writers and always includes a couple of songs by other musicians. His rendering of “Maybellene” is menacing.
Fans from around the world continue to fill concert venue after concert venue eager for the galvanizing ride of a Chris Smither concert as he draws deeply from folk and blues, modern poets and philosophers.
