Good tunes, good lyrics and a great story. Isn't that what you want? Koots gives you a nice folk mix of all of these. Good harmonies, variety and even a little humor. Think 1968 and the groups that shaped that era. Listen to "Buffalo Dreams" and you hear a mix of Neal Young and Gordon Lightfoot. "I Dreamed I was a Sailor" channels Simon and Garfunkel - simple, tight harmonies with nice guitar work. "Just the Same" evokes The Byrds with a touch of Chicago. Koots brings together four folk lovers all steeped in the music of the late '60's, but each sharing their creativity in songwriting and performance. Koots is four guys who love music and want you to hear the lyrics. They want you to journey with them to Buffalo, the Falklands, or the Stars. They want you to feel their pain with "I Loved and Angel" or "So Here We Are." And they want you to enjoy the "whole album" experience. This is a CD you will listen to from beginning to end and enjoy the variety. Besides, how can you resist a group named Koots?
