• slim forsythe This Is Slim Forsythe (red vinyl LP, £20.95)

    label: get hip

    Here are ten songs straight from the soul of this 61-year-old Northern Tier Kid from Bradford, Pennsylvania. In the album's first five numbers, Slim pays homage to his heroes Slim Bryant, Jimmie Rodgers, Hank Williams and Roy Acuff. Then he carries on the tradition, adding five of his own homespun compositions to the 'Great American Songbook'. Slim calls what he does "classic country & western, mountain gospel, bluegrass, rockabilly... and some original stuff that sounds like that!" This edition is limited to 300 copies.
