New Old Stock
WHAT CRITICS, PEERS, AND JUST PLAIN FOLKS ARE SAYING ABOUT J. Brown: Truly professional in every sense of the word. Sounds like a cross between Lonnie and Eric Clapton singing a Robert Cray song. ================ Voice and guitar style reminiscent of Warren Haynes of Gov't.Mule, blended with the raw Rock n Roll essence of Jim O'Rourke ================ A less twangy John Hiatt, road worn like Hiatt, but with a better voice... ================ The guitar playing takes me back and forth between Robert Cray and Peter Green. ================= It's got soul and heart!!!! ================== Great fun to listen to and every pass reveals more great moments. ================== Nice! All around excellent playing, production, and feeling. Love it! ================= A real Richard Thomson vibe (Fairport Convention) that I really like. ================== Heavy lyrics. They will take some time to digest and decipher, but damn they are heavy. ================ There is a lot of passion in your voice that makes this very genuine. ================ Hell yes. Another good, solid tune. If I lived anywhere near California, I'd come see you and bring some friends... ================== NEW OLD STOCK (NOS) is a collection of 11 songs written by James B.
