Album Notes
Spencer Bohren's Solitaire documents many of the most beloved songs from his concert repertoire in their acoustic form.

Though several of the tracks have been previously released, these versions are what the audience typically hears at a Spencer Bohren concert. All of the elements are here, from the deep delta bottleneck slide work of Been 'Round the World, to a chilling rendition of the original, Witch Doctor, performed on the supremely evocative lapsteel guitar.

Other original contributions include the ever-popular Born in a Biscayne, the lonesome ballad, In-Between Friends, and the jaunty Down the Road. Blind Willie McTell, The Rolling Stones, Hank Williams, Skip James and Charley Patton fill out the songlist.

Spencer, pure and simple
This is what Spencer does best. By himself he manages to sound like four or five different people. This CD takes you on a musical journey from Skip James' raw and anguished "Hard Time Killing Floor Blues" to a hilarious self-composed "I Was Born In a Biscayne." "Witch Doctor" has to be heard to be believed. It puts a person creeping and crawling 'round the night streets of New Orleans while the hair raises up on the back of your neck. I love this CD.

A Really Good CD!
I just wanted to drop a line and say that it was a really
good CD. Lots of good tunes and some really good guitar
playing! I would definitely recommend it!!
