TAW 2-CD set released 2009 produced by Dave Ramont

Ramont’s ragtag ensemble bring inspired playing to these precisely tattered arrangements. Roots without boundaries; grit & twang, with plenty of exorcism. The water’s cold but it feels good. “Differentiating oneself in the burgeoning field of alternative country artists is a tricky proposition these days, but Dave Ramont stands tall in the crowd.” –Russell Hall, Performing Songwriter magazine

Scrawny released 2000 produced by Dave Ramont

“This album glows with true rootsy beauty...the finest collection of songwriting I’ve heard in a long time. His quiet humor and scrappy musicianship allow for a hazy country vision with mystery.” -Mark Guarino, Chicago areas Daily Herald

WOOZY- released 2005, produced by Dick Smith

If you're the type who'd stick your hand -- no, your whole damn arm -- inside a hollow log in the woods, then plunk yer money down friend. Same wonderfully stringy grease with a bit more organ, a tad more piano- it's still raining but it feels good. Drunken mules, women's prison, the splitting of matter, death & sex & the Old Testament...if the brakes are out you might as well hit the gas.

SMOKE DAMAGE- released 2002, produced by Dick Smith

Picks up where the delightfully burnt-around-the edges "Swill" left off. Just plain hummable. Still greezy, but with more seasonings. A little dark, but exuberantly so. Like a sunny night, or dancin' at a wake. More pickin', squeezin', slidin', slappin', and chortlin' than one can shake a stick at. So put down that stick and buy the damn thing.

SWILL- released 2000, produced by Dick Smith

These 15 songs begged to be recorded live. In the basement. And so it was. There's honky tonk (Heart Up on Blocks), prison balladry (Huntsville), south of the border lust-driven avant grass (Brown Dollar), murky swamp odes (Boats on Fire), gospel grass (Church of Yer Choice), and muchos more. A beautiful, infectious mess.

Ben Schiltz and the Illinois 3 released 2016, produced by Dave Ramont

The self-proclaimed Stepfather of Folk is back with his 6th record. Dirt-poor waltzes and country stomp; pedal steel & fiddles, barroom piano and fever-dream keys. And plenty of fringe characters populating the shadows. The stark scenery never looked so pretty...

In cart Not available Out of stock
$12.00

When Reyna Larson walked away from being front-woman for Mabel Mabel, the Chicago Rock/Pop band had built a hardcore following on the strength of their addictive, sexy songs and spirited, spontaneous live shows. During a period of contemplation- and a drive from Chicago to the West coast and back, a batch of beautiful, introspective songs was born. Recorded with members of Mabel Mabel & dick smith, and boasting a more roots vibe, it’s the gem we’re left with until we coax her back into the ring...
