REAL COUNTRY MUSIC FROM DUSTY WOODS

HONKY-TONK DAYS ALBUM

Here it is at last, Dusty's 10th album!  The title song, Honky-Tonk Days, describes what it was like back in Dusty's road-running days, when music wasn't just a living, it was fun.  Ultimate Honky-Tonk – from country through blues.

Here you'll find real country weepers (The Barstools Are Getting Higher), a humorous touch of fifties (Drive-In Blues), and a chunk of solid blues from CC Rider to Lone Frog Blues.

Listen for touches of New Orleans R&B (Bourbon Street Stroll), Ray Price (My Turn To Cry) and BB King (It's Over).

Honky-Tonk Days album on CD:  $12.00

Dusty's country music SOUNDS like country music!  This “ultimate honky-tonk” offers a traditional country sound with an outlaw flavour and touches of rockabilly, blues and 50s rock.  

Seasoned by his years of playing bar-band music, Dusty's original country songs have their roots in his early influences, which included Hank Williams, Waylon Jennings, Lefty Frizzell, and Buddy Holly.

DUSTY'S COUNTRY MUSIC ALBUMS

Dusty's country music albums offer classic country guitar twang from Dusty's Telecaster, "Gypsy", a bass line that adds more than just a steady beat, and solid, original country lyrics.  As a songwriter, Dusty was a master of the "hook" and knew how to tell a story - which is the essence of real country.

Most of the songs on Dusty's country albums are originals - but you'll hear definite overtones of artists like Ray Price, Waylon Jennings, Faron Young, Willie Nelson, and even B.B. King.

TELE-PICKIN' BANDIT ALBUM

You'll find the humourous country-boogie boomer anthem of Too Old To Boogie, plus 50s rock 'n roll (Billy's Gotta Rock), Canadiana country/folk (On My Way Again), and pure honky-tonk country (Incredible Drinking Man).

STRAIGHT UP, NO ROCKS ALBUM

Solid country honky-tonk the way Dusty likes it - straight up.  "Give me something real - something I can feel - honest music that cuts right to the bone…" - the defiant swamp-rock of the title song says it all.

This is the place to find country weepers (I Wish I Could Have Heard It From You), country rock (Stumble Inn), and a two-step with a definite Canadiana feel (Cold Wind From Montana).  

Listen for flavours of Merle Haggard (Since You Fell) and Dwight Yoakum (Cruel Cruel Fool).

Special note:  Memory Lane is dedicated to Dusty's dad, Hank Woods.  All profits from Memory Lane will be donated to the Alzheimer's Society.
