Review by Lucky Boyd
From the opening cut, it’s easy to hear the deep traditional roots of this album. Red Dvorak brinks a slice of Americana to the headphones in a gem of a release that uses solid writing and flawless performances to transport the listener to, well, uh, Yesteryear. Dvorak’s voice is true and perfectly suited for storytelling through song. The feel of this album reminds me of a great Gene Watson album, comfortable, pleasant, and masterfully delivered. It’s easy to hear the traditional country influences in Dvorak’s project as the instrumentation screams old-school, without the over-production of those Nashville-come-lately releases. A favorite is “Maria” which reminds us there is a tasteful use of minor chords in country music. Bobby Flores produces, and Tommy Detamore masters, which accounts for the flawless technical end of this disc. Flores and Detamore also appear on the album along with Jake Hooker, Joel Guzman, Jim Loessberg, and Randy Reinhard. You can’t go wrong with that lineup. Leighan Cortes and Lana Dvorak make vocal appearances as well. In addition to the stellar vocal work, the harmonies are outstanding and each track is a treasure. The title cut is a fun nostalgic offering that appeals to the baby boomer in all of us. “Grandfather’s Song” is the lone waltz, a song inspired by a visit to a late 19th century home build by Dvorak’s great-great grandparents. The album is the official debut offering from Dvorak, and it is a great one.
