More drinkin', cryin' and cheatin' country from Dusty to you! "Patchwork" features light and lively real country with a touch of blues. You'll find everything from Canadian country/rockabilly to country weepers like What A Friend (I Lost Last Night), a little country rock, even a 50s-type ballad.
Patchwork Album : $12.00 Canadian ($10 US)
Lights Of Nashville (2:43): A suitcase and an old guitar, and a poor boy's dreams/ but I found out Nashville is not all that it seems... Dream meets reality in Music City. Up-tempo country rock with vocal about the vagaries of fame and fortune. I lived in Nashville and played there; this song is a slice
of reality with a lively shuffle beat.
Slow Dancing With You (2:33): Each time I see you it's like the first time / when our love was young and new... Slow romantic fifties-style ballad reminiscent of Oh Donna and You Send Me.. Lots of
feeling and quite a few doo-wops thrown in.
Blue Alberta Moon (2:14): He's shined his shoes and got himself a haircut / his aftershave would make you want to swoon... Light-hearted romance - something we don't see much of these days. Canadiana country with touches of early Sun Label rockabilly - a bit old-fashioned but maybe that's not a bad thing.
Red Deer Crossing (4:03). Instrumental country with a "Hollywood Indian" sound, extended but
driving. Lively with a touch of foreboding. A reflection on the history of the Canadian west - based on the original name of the city of Red Deer, Alberta.
What A Friend (I Lost Last Night) (2:50): What made me say the things I said / now our love is lying cold and dead... The downside of love. Bluegrass harmonies in a real country honky-tonk weeper
with a solid beat.
Halfway Tempted (2:27): We were perfect strangers when we walked through the door / I asked her
for just one dance, and then one more... Charming, old-fashioned love story in a lively country shuffle. A song that evokes the innocence that once was young love.
This Country Boy (2:43): I need some serious boogie-woogie, that's my heart's delight / and this country boy is gonna rock 'n roll tonight... Good-time driving country rock. Fast and fun honky-tonk. Weekend's here, work's done and it's time to get rowdy!
Full Size (3:01): I'm built solid, ain't built for pretty / if you're gonna be a bear, might as well be a grizzly... We're not all slim and sexy (well, at least not slim). A song about living life "full size". Fun, lively country song with a bit of wry, non-politically-correct truth to it.
I Don't Mind (4:01): I'd give all I own to see you happy / go ahead and break my heart, I don't mind... Sometimes it's nobler to step aside. Slow country ballad, with a classic weeper vocal, Sons of the Pioneers harmonies and a good beat for dancing.
Country Saturday Night (2:47): Papa's got the banjo, I'm here with my guitar, and Uncle Joe is
looking for a fight… Upbeat country two-step with humourous and happy vocal and a bit of an attitude.
Speechless (3:19): Tasty, medium-slow, romantic country instrumental evokes a feeling of space and peace, yet has lots of twang. (So what else would you call an instrumental?)
It's Never Too Late (2:11): I'm going to live it up / until they lay me down / it's never too late to die young... There's no cool like an old cool. A little light-hearted country-flavoured philosophy with a
touch of rockabilly and doo-wops. A fun and raucous bit of truth.
