"Russ Seeger - Live In Peace (CD, Paradiddle, Pop)"

Although he's apparently a fixture on the Long Island, New York music scene, we have to admit this is the first time we've knowingly been exposed to the music of Russ Seeger. And that's probably because over the past few years Seeger has spent his time acting as a backup player for other artists. In the past Russ has played with Peter Rowan, Vassar Clements, Peter Stampfel, Rick Danko, and Levon Helm among others. He finally decided to collect his best songs and record an album...and Live In Peace was born. This is not a live album as the name might suggest, these are studio recordings mixed by Grammy-winning producer Bob Stander. The overall vibe of these tunes reminds us very much of Elvis Costello...even the vocals are similar. Seeger's got a great knack for coming up with rockin' tunes and his cool masculine vocals are particularly inviting. There's a great deal of commercial potential here...many of these songs sound very much like oughta be hits. Thirteen smart tracks here including "No Crime Like Hatred," "Sound Asleep," "One Side of Love," and "The Great Unknown." -
