- eugene chadbourne musical sounds of gold and platinum
(2016, cdr, usa, private release / house of chadula)
I recently bought another set of albums by Eugene Chadbourne. You may know that Eugene is a perfect example of a contemporary DIY (do it yourself) artist. He writes and performs his own music but he's also not scared to perform pieces by other artists. Music that is part of his history, his life. As Doc Chad has a good taste in music, this usually translates in familiar sounding tunes or fine discoveries. The recognizability depends on the quirky arrangement and/or the instrument that he is playing (guitar, banjo, rake, umbrella,...).
"Musical Sounds Of Gold And Platinum" has Eugene performing solo, in trio, and even with his Doc Chad Contemporary Rock Band.
Lots of great tunes, including Don Van Vliet's 'Orange Claw Hammer'. Very nice.
The CDR comes in the typical unique packaging: recycled / collage LP covers with the info written all over it.
