Malcolm Holcombe, ‘The RCA Sessions’ (Singular Recordings)

This impressive CD / DVD package traces the highlights of Malcolm Holcombe's career to date, showcasing recently re-recorded versions of tracks from each of the ten albums that this criminally underrated country balladeer has released during the past two decades. The decision to revisit these splendid creations live in RCA's Nashville Studios gives them a freshness and spontaneity which if anything improves on the much loved originals, with "To Drink The Rain," "Mouth Harp Man" and "Who Carried You" emerging as the best of a ruggedly beautiful bunch.
