Album Review: Cactus Blossoms - The Cactus Blossoms (Self Release)
Some fine retro honky-tonking country in the spirit of Hank Williams, from brothers Jack Torrey and Page Burkum, both effectively fronting the Cactus Blossoms. Joined by veteran Minneapolis musicians Mike 'Razz' Russell on fiddle and Randy Broughton on guitar, the boys young and not so young are further joined by Liz Draper on double bass and between them create an authentic old time country roots feel.
Recorded at LittleBig Studios in Cannon Falls, Minnesota with Brent Sigmeth at the helm, this fine debut recalls music from a much missed era, whilst at the same time showcasing original songs that fit perfectly into the retro feel. Listen to Jack Torrey's immediately infectious Adios Maria and anything of your choosing recorded pre-1950 and spot the difference. There's a task.
