Universal United House of Prayer
by Buddy Miller
Released: Sep 2004
Label: New West Records
Miller offers a fusion of dive blues, down-home folk and out-West country; he's like a songster in the rough from a joint along Route 66. Reflective tracks like "Wide River to Cross" favor his sheltered vocal nuances, while "This Old World" is eccentric bluegrass and "Fall on the Rock" is a pure CBGB gem.
