A warm whiskey voice and a flawless guitar explode from the first track to the last as you listen to the jaw-dropping sounds of Tommy Elskes. His first offering from Horizon Records is "BOHEMIA" and if you're a fan of the vast diversity of Texas, then grab your most comfortable easy chair and hold on tight. Elskes' voice wanders effortlessly through this disc with the power of a lone Texas Ranger on a relentless ride toward his capture. This disc is wonderfully mixed by John Viehweg and Larry Nye with production by Nye, Elskes, Stephen Luther Doster and Bruce Hollibaugh. Doster's leadership is evident as he even lends his vocals to the project. The production of this disc is nothing short of expert, and in marksmanship terms, it is a bulls-eye. Orchestration, arrangement, and use of special effects are exemplary. This disc makes my top ten list. Tommy Elskes is a true Texas talent, driving home the point that multiple influences make for great composition. If you've not heard Elskes, give a listen. Samples may be heard at his website. At times his voice may lean toward Bolton or Seger, but Elskes is no knock-off. He is the genuine article. For all my friends who await this review to buy, I suggest you buy now.
