The Talbot Brothers/Reborn (Warner Bros/Sparrow BS 2767/SPR-1008) 1974

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

High-class country rock album from Mason Proffit graduates John and Terry Talbot. Less electric and kickin’ than bands like the Outlaws, but more rootsy feel than the Eagles and all their imitators thanks to an acoustic emphasis and use of banjo, dobro, steel guitar, and harmonica. Includes a fresh version of Little Feat’s ‘Easy To Slip’, as well as a cover of Clayton’s ‘Carnival Balloon’ – everything else was written by the Talbots. Hawaiian guitar leads grace the beautiful acoustic piece ‘Trail Of Tears’. Fast pickin’ on hoe-down ‘Comin’ Home To Jesus’ and Moline Truckin’, both with Randy Scruggs on guitar. The latter song was deleted when the album was re-issued as Reborn on the Sparrow label (SPR-1008). Several mainstream label musicians assisting to create a consistent professional sound throughout without a hint of fluff. (The Archivist by Ken Scott, 4th Edition).
