Stranger in My Land
Released: Feb 2013
Label: Bloodshot Records
In his native Australia, singer Roger Knox is known as the "Black Elvis," so who better to introduce Aboriginal country music to America? Stranger in My Land is a collection of songs written by Aborigine artists. Tales are told with a strong political and moral bent. In some cases ("Stranger in My Country," "Took the Children Away"), the messages are too unwieldy for the music, but when the two mesh, it's magic, like on the yodeling beauty "Blue Gums Calling Me Back Home," the twanging "Ticket to Nowhere," the pining "Streets of Tamworth" and the drinking companion "Scobie's Dream."
