Product Notes

Check out a fine review of 'Someone Take the Wheel' in the Belgian online magazine Rootstime. If you're by chance in Italy... pick up a copy of the January issue of Italian music magazine 'Buscadero'. There's a nice review of my album on page 70. RootsHighway's Nicola Gervasini's review of 'Someone Take the Wheel' eep in mind this was translated from Italian There's a road, there's a car going towards the horizon, there's the American Myth in every line of his songs, there are those sounds covered with Mississippi mud that John Hiatt used to love, there's a big baritone voice talking with keyboards (only piano and hammond organ, don't worry about synthesizers), there is that sensation, that catch you since the first time you hear that record, to be at home again under your reassuring covers. Eyes fixed on Wade Lashley, the last of an American songwriters tradition that lives between folk and southern rock, and upon his Someone Take The Wheel. In 2005 this not-so-young Arizona artist had published a solo record (In From The Wilderness), the result of an activity that last since the 90's, and now he has done his maturity record. Probably Lashley have anything more to say than what Turn Around South Bound (with his Al Kooper-like organ) or Coffee Tea And Whiskey have already said, he only takes on a new life a good tradition without moving anything, and also in the better moments, he seems to have an ordinary pen caught in a right moment. It's not easy today to make roots-records without falling in repetition and mannerism, but if there's no much originality here, Lashley has enough personality to manage things in the right way. So it's fair if we choose Someone Take The Wheel between many others similar records, there is a perfect production (Jeff Lusby, a sound engineer) and there's no lack moments, except probably some repetitiveness in Drift Away. But songs like Fall or Someone Take The Wheel are part of this superior race of songs that you can put on a car-compilation with your best track-list of the moment, because these are tunes that only ask to be heard on the road. Tonight is the irremissible romantic ballad, River Song the classic texan rural ride as Joe Ely used to do, Waiting On The Rain is a patented folk registered by the americanized Graham Parker, Rootless Wanderer the inevitabile hymn to the hobos that close the record with some epic mood. And Someone Take The Wheel is the record that you already have in your CD's collection, but you still need again. (Nicola Gervasini)
