An old time employee hipped us up to Crosby Tyler, a recommendation you pay attention to instantly. Thus, we scored a last minute in-store, today at 5pm. Just posting it up on our Facebook got a few fans asking us to say hello. Its Thursday, the official start of San Luis Obispo weekend, so drop on in and witness an amazing act.
“A bohemian troubadour steeped in American traditions, the railroad, the carny, the hobo, the latest in a line that included Guthrie, Leadbelly, Ramblin Jack Elliott and Michael Hurley. Tyler is able to delve deep into tradition to produce some fabulous songs. The stringent folk blues of Ooh You’re Scarin’ Me and the rickety gospel of Train To Heaven are stompingly good. The introspective Bless That Day and Good Ol’ Circus Days reflect his ability to capture an audience with nothing but his guitar and talent. Lectric Prayer is a hypnotic groove with wheezy harmonica and a railroad rhythm and the tub thumpin’ Runaway Hellbound Train allows the band to swing merrily.” – Paul Kerr BLABBER “N” SMOKE
