ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Man From RavCon Rides Again! is a full on guitar-based Spaghetti Western CD with a twist. Like the latter-day spaghetti western soundtracks of the late 60's and early 70's, the eleven tracks that make up The Man From RavCon Rides Again! incorporate elements of another popular music form of the time: Progressive Rock. In addition to the simple but effective deep surfy single-note guitar melodies present on the previous releases, you'll hear light prog embellishments such as Hammond Organ, Mellotron Strings, Flute and Choir as well as unique time signatures and tempo changes. The new sound has been described as "progressive twang" and it fits.

What the critics are saying...

“(on Rides Again) The Man From RavCon delivers spaghetti westerns with some fine arranging and production. Professional writing and orchestral arranging give the music a film score appeal. Just close your eyes to witness the desert drama unfolding in your mind's eye.”
Phil Dirt - Reverb Central

“An album that is consistently playable, The Man From RavCon Rides Again! is a soundtrack for your own imagination.”
Alan Taylor - Pipeline Instrumental Review

Man From RavCon Does it Again!
Charlotte NC native Mike Brown, who records under the name The Man From Ravcon, recently released an excellent solo instrumental cd entitled, The Man From RavCon Rides Again. If you have followed the local music scene over the years, you may remember Mike from his band The Ravelers. They were a well known local band for almost 20 years. With The Ravelers on what seems to be a permanent hiatus, Mike has had time to pursue his interest in instrumental / soundtrack recordings in his home studio. Rides Again sounds like a long lost western soundtrack, mixed with surf guitar and prog rock. That may sound like a strange brew, but it goes down nicely. A few highlights: The cd starts out with a track called Wichita, and you can almost vision a lonely cowboy riding into a strange town. The Valley of Death, (all the song titles have a western theme) shows Mike’s prog rock influences, the keyboards and choir on this song made me think of Alan Parsons Project or Pink Floyd. Pushing Up Daisies, with its jangly guitar, could have been a long lost Byrds instrumental. The cd concludes with a song titled Utah, and you can just imagine that lonely cowboy from the first track riding out of town. When the harmonica kicks in on this track, it literally brought a tear to my eye. If you have ever enjoyed a good rock and roll instrumental, you should check this cd out.
