No Cover at the Door

Rick Adams

Available from CD Baby.

A review written for the Folk & Acoustic Music Exchange
by Mike Jurkovic

The twang and tumble of She Got Caboose opens Adams' well-spring of roadhouse country with a fanciful insight to his lady's strut. Honey In The Tree takes it even lustfully further while The More That She Dances just sends the poor boy over the edge.

No Cover at The Door is a no frills, no glossy Nashville cross genre sales oriented mashup of glittery old rock school riffs and superstar duets. Nope, none of that, not on your life. Not on Rick Adams' life either. Can't find much information on Adams, but I can safely say the guy knows his craft (Blue Just Looks Black, Some Winds Are Lonesome, Three More Rivers) and maybe he likes it that way: a mysterious presence known only for his songs. Recorded in Austin, TX and Alexandria, LA with sparse accompaniment from emphatic players including Bennet Spielvogel - keys, Ryan Gould - slap bass, and Lisa Brand - fiddle. No Cover at The Door is one of those discs that you fortunately stumble upon while making your way through all the schlock.
