When, I just received an advance copy of the New Album, Long Way From Home by Texas Martha & the House of Twang tonight, and the first thing I have to say is that it has blown my socks off... this entire album is full of great energy and passion for music, which clearly comes through with every song. The album starts off with a remix version of Born to Boogie, (all the songs on the album are written by Texas Martha,) and if you do not get up to dance, then I bet your feet can not stop tapping, it is a great song to start you off on a wodnerful trip, and trip is correct as the second song is called Take You Down, taking us down south, feeling that summer heat as again you start to dance. Then you arrive with a Long Way from Home, more of a slower dance track with a little hint of sadness and a great harmonica solo. Lover's Lane is the 4th track which is a very heart felt song, and you hear the great voice that is Texas Martha, and this is followed by Johanna, a song dedicated to a friend of hers, a song full of love in her voice. Streets of Bordeaux, brings you over to Europe, with just a hint of french in the song... and she really sings in french really well... Where the Red Grass Grows builds you back up again to the next song Strike and your feet start tapping, by now when Do as You are Told you will be up and dancing again... which is just as well, as Gotta Move is a dance track we all should have on our playlist to put a smile back on our faces... my verdict, this is one cracking album and worth every penny/cent/euro.
