Steel Notes Magazine December 2016 - Page 60

December 2016 Steel Notes Magazine Track ten,” I Walk The Line,” I was wondering if this was in the cards for us on this release. Thankfully it is and it’s great. Tom really has a knack and understanding of Johnny Cash’s voice and music and it really shows. The guitar work is true to the original and I could listen to this version of this classic all day and I implore you to do the same. If you haven’t bought this music yet, then what are you waiting for?! Track eleven, “Sangria” is a much different tune than what we’ve seen on the rest of this album but it’s a good sort of different that adds variety. Tom proves that he cannot only sing classic rock and country but he can add a contemporary vibe, proving his versatility as a vocalist. Great tune but could have used more lead guitar somewhere, maybe in the intro or as a solo (but then again, I’m biased because I’m a guitarist and I love guitar – so judge for yourself – BUY THE ALBUM ALREADY). Track 12 is an honest thank you from Tom to us. I think it’s awesome he decided to add this thank you section because it is important to remember those who have influenced us musically. Not only does Tom thank his influences, but also he gives some love to Gar Francis and Bongo Boy Records. How cool is that? If you haven’t bought this album yet, do me a favor and get a copy. You’ll thank me later. - Jenny Cat Disc/Download: http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/tomvicario Artist Official WebSite: www.tomvicariomusic.com Record Label: www.bongoboyrecords.com FEATURE VIDEO CLIP HERE -> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L9HCfNzndCE 60 Steel Notes Magazine www.steelnotesmagazine.com
