Only Joshing

I am a bit slow off the mark with this, but if you haven't already checked out Josh T. Pearson's "Last of the Country Gentlemen" you ought to do so. But you ought to do so properly. This is not an album to be put on in the background while you do something else. Do that and you will probably just find it dreary and dragging on. This is an album you have to make a bit of effort with, but if you do you will be rewarded. You also need to listen to it all the way through to really get yer actual ambience of the piece, which for me is reminiscent of some of Johnny Cash's 'American Recordings' and the good bits of Johnny Dowd.

Here is alternative version  of "Country Dumb" from that on the album, that Josh has kindly made available on his website.

"Country Dumb (Piano Version)" - Josh T. Pearson

And, to pad things out a bit, here are some more Joshes.

"South Carolina Low Country" - Josh Turner

"Kentucky Flood" - Josh Rouse

"Kathleen" - Josh Ritter

And here are Daphne and Celeste with some light-hearted joshing of their own.
