Midwestern Hayride (2006)

Indiana guitarist/songwriter Rand Reynolds' continues familiar themes in his new cd, "Midwestern Hayride" -- bad love, unfaithfulness, death, murder, technology gone awry -- but these new tunes shake the speakers with a clever skillful mix of acoustic music, 1960's rockabilly and modern country pop/rock. Raw, powerful, and yes, crude, at times, but above all, extremely effective.
