There were many more roots tracks on these collections, but we had to keep this within the length of one CD. We dropped the generally known records (like the one by Bonnie Raitt, with here only one song include, though it’s a great record) and concentrated on artists that don’t have that kind of exposure, like the Dutch bands Jack Hustinx & Southern Aces and Hidden Agenda Deluxe, or bands just starting out like Mississippi Bigfoot. There are also some surprises, like Tom Jones, known for wholly different styles of music. We could have filled this with groovy music like # 3, 7, 11 or 13, but we chose to keep it as wide as possible, so you can find gospel inspired sounds (#18 by Birds Of Chicago) or more experimental approaches like #10. But for the most this is good time music… Nothing wrong with that! The compilations we excerped are in chronologic order: ‘BONE (alternative version)’, ‘TRUE’ (that produced the bulk of the material here), ‘SONGS’, ‘ECHO’, ‘STAR’ and ‘FREE’. Full track lists and lengthy comments (mostly in Dutch) can be found at . We plan a second volume by the end of 2016. We hope this selection will satisfy our roots music loving friends… (AL; 01 07 16)
