Album review: Buddy Miller & Jim Lauderdale, Buddy and Jim (New West)
Buddy Miller is fast becoming a ubiquitous presence on quality Americana and, through work with the likes of Robert Plant and Richard Thompson, quality Albiona, too.
Co-hosts of an Outlaw Country radio show, Buddy and songwriter Jim Lauderdale here collaborate on a tranche of down-home rockabilly for which, again, quality is the crucial element, both on twangsome covers of Jimmy McCracklin's r'n'b dance tune "The Wobble" and the rumba-rock celebration "Down South in New Orleans", and their own collaborative material such as the earthy "I Lost My Job of Loving You". It's all delivered with customary warmth and swing from Miller's home studio.
