Scotty makes me feel like he knows where I"ve been. The music has a way of picking me up and making me feel good. I can see the Sacremento mountains, feel the ocean and I want to book a ride on the train to Mexico. The sound of the guitar makes it seem as if the music is just for me but with the words and the beat it's like he has a few hundred of his closest friends in for a jam session. I highly recommend this CD for the words and the music.

If you have not gotten a chance to know the "Six String Sailor", better known as Scotty Lee Shuffield, you can get a good taste of his special style and authentic Texas twang from his first CD, "Texas Music in the Raw". So many things come to mind when I listen to this record. Each song paints a vivid picture and tells a story that will weave a path in your imagination and set your spirit to float across the Texas landscape. "TMITR" is appropriately titled because it's stripped down to the core. The magic of the production is in the man and the guitar. His experience in the world and on the road of life comes out in each song. Each song is so warm on the record, and so clear its like being at the fireside with him telling his stories influenced by a couple bottles of rum. Of course we are all drinkin together. "TMITR" embodies all the great elements of Texas music in simplicity. Those elements being depth of content, tasteful acoustic guitar, humor, and a voice that penetrates the walls we build around ourselves. Those walls come crashing down when you listen to this record or get a chance to see him perform. A record like "TMITR" doesn't come around very often, nor does the artist. This record is the most authentic sounding body of work I have heard in at least a decade. That's why I am giving this record 4 stars.
