Amer­i­cana man brings some more rock into his roll Jake Smith’s faith in the art of sto­ry­telling with a dread­nought has served him well as The White Buf­falo, with a bari­tone that car­ries grav­i­tas and sin­cer­ity. But he’s brought long­time pro­ducer Bruce Witkin’s elec­tric gui­tar fur­ther into his sound here to cre­ate a rock­ier and riffier drive to Avalon, the Thin Lizzy-fied The Heart And Soul Of The Night and blast of Night­stalker Blues. It’s a nat­u­ral step, not a curve­ball. The jazz­ier strut of Rob­bery is more un­usual for Smith, but fans of his ear­lier acous­tic in­ti­macy will find their fill with The Ob­ser­va­tory and the ten­der If I Lost My Eyes. [DH] Stand­out track: Night­stalker Blues For fans of: Johnny Cash, Bruce Spring­steen, Phil Lynott
