North American & Susquehanna is the new CD from Paul Edelman and the Jangling Sparrows. It is the prototype Americana record-wide open and warm, with old fashioned charm-great vocals and great songs. Trains, Civil War soldiers, cars, Abraham Lincoln and many other classic Americana themes are present. A few personal and introspective songs give balance to the bunch. The CD gets better with every listen.

Recorded at Soundgun in Philadelphia with Edan Cohen producing, the 'hopelessly optimistic'Paul Edelman showcases his writing skills with his 10 new originals. Paul, who also plays banjo and harmonica has been in many of Philadelphias top bands including She-Haw, The Boxcars, Naked Omaha, and the Butcher Holler Boys. He contributes to Three songs on 'Burlap Palace', a Philadelphia tribute to the sounds of the Muscle Shoals Studio during which he worked with legendary producer Jimmy Johnson.

Recommended radio tracks are #2, "Lead Me Out" and #4 "Letter in the Dirt". North American and Susquehanna is available at CD and Miles of For more information contact Paul Edelman at 267-879-3512 or e-mail at

Paul Edelman & The Jangling Sparrow... "North America & Susquehanna" (Record Cellar)

Song driven warm classic Americana, set against a tapestry of equaly classic musical textures, Alt Country attitude and soulful resonance. I know I'll be playing this album in twenty years time, it has a self evident ageless charm, and it gets better on every listen, I had to play it back to back on the first listen, always a good sign. Songs about Trains, Civil War Soldiers, Cars, Abraham Lincoln, and a few personal introspective offerings.

Paul Edelman & The Jangling Sparrow hail from Philadelphia, and this is as accomplished a first offering as I have heard, Paul has served his dues however, augmenting some of Philies leading combo's on Banjo and Harmonica for some years, She Haw, The Boxcars, Naked Omaha and the Butcher Holler Boys, have all benefited from his services, also working closely with acclaimed producer Jimmy Johnson, on "Burlap Palace", the tribute to the sound of Muscle Shoal Studio.

"North America & Susquehanna" is released from the caring hands of Record Cellar, who have brought us equally cool collections from the likes of Frogholler The Rollin Hayseeds, Chet Delcampo, Buz Zeamer.

Hardly on the radar outside his home town, where he is as well known for establishing open mike sessions at Doc Watson's and Fergie's, however this is infinitely likable and I believe infectious music, it can't be long before we hearing a lot more about Paul Edelmans clan, remember you heard it first here.

"What will I listen to now? I'll just put this on again while I'm thinking about it. It will have to be something classic, The Byrds, The Band, Burrito's ah "Sweetheart of the Rodeo", ( why not that will do the trick ) I'll just let this one run through first though".

good americana
Great cd. I saw Paul here in Philly and got a copy of the cd from the guy playing bass for him. I really like it. It's americana, but it doesn't have that tiresome "whiskey-soaked" voice shit going on. I think the best songs are "lead me out" and "deacon and the lighthouse keeper."
