ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The album opens with a cooking country rock version of Don\'t Miss Your Water and moves swiftly to the title track, Birds of a Feather - a Parsons Green original. On Steve Goodman\'s Looking For Trouble, Meridian\'s vocal shines with a smoky roadhouse flavor and California Blues chugs down the steel rails of this Americana classic like a pedal steel and harmonica powered locomotive. A lively original bluegrass instrumental, Lily\'s Hotbread, is marked by sparkling acoustic guitar work while No, You\'re Not Broken showcases a folk-pop beat and catchy melody, augmented by soaring harmonies.

The banjo and a choir of harmonies highlight the joyous bluegrass-gospel number, Swing Down, and on Michael Smith\'s Spoon River, intimately entwined voices journey through history, haunted by a timeless sounding banjo and an antique echo harmonica. Parsons\' and Gib Guilbeau\'s Wind & Rain evokes the longing to be home from the road while Meridian\'s and Gene\'s folk rock arrangement of Donovan\'s Catch The Wind boasts a bright high-strung guitar and symphonic harmonies. The album concludes with Quiet Joys of Brotherhood, a Richard Farina lyric, set to a primordial Celtic melody sung a capella with dense modal harmonies.
