"Hi'. Anybody familiar with Chris Whitley's stuff. I saw a program
about Robert Johnson and someone did "Hellhounds on my Trail"
playin solo acoustic slide guitar & it was amazing the way he
varied the tempo throught out the song. I think it was Chris
Whitley. He seems to have produced quite a few cd's & I was
wondering how they were."
chris whitley is all over the place. "living w/the law" is nice & a tad
slick "white soul" for my tastes. the second & third discs tend to be
louder & more electric. portions of the second disc remind me of dinosaur
jr. "dirt floor" is his best in my opinion. chris was playing his national &
banjo straight to a dat. the disc was recorded in a barn on his parents
property. i haven't heard the discs w/mm&w or the new one w/dj logic. but i
have a cdr of a show from boston in july of this year w/dj logic that's
pretty interesting. in general, i find i don't really groove on his lyrics
too much. chris has played pgh a number of times & i've missed him every
time. however, my neighbor goes & she reports he's a wonderful performer & a
nice human being to boot. to sum it up, my view of chris is kind of like
what my friend dick says about the dead--" i like the concept of the dead
more than their actual music."
