Currituck Co. - Ghost Man On First



With a transatlantic sound that brings together both UK and American folk influences, Currituck Co.'s Ghost Man On First CD is a unique blend of sonics that occasionally brings to mind an imaginary meeting of Bert Jansch and Robbie Basho, the mixture of covers and originals is a mesmerising stew. There's the traditional banjo/vocal two-step of "I Truly Understand", Jansch's "Silly Woman" and Nina Simone's "Black Is the Colour of My True Love's Hair" (reworked as the folk-raga piece "A Raga Called Nina") as well as Barker originals like "Requiem for John Fahey", the astounding "A Raga Called Pat Cohn", which blends acoustic guitar with tablas and Silvertone air organ to hallucinatory effect, and the fearsome "March of the People Who Do Not Know You", an electric guitar freakout bound (and likely aimed) to upset folk-purist dullards everywhere.
