The County Line

by Tom Savage Trio

Album Notes
With the release of Tom Savage’s fourth studio album, we are witness to the continuing evolution of an artist. However, there is an important distinction to be made between Savage’s earlier solo records, and this new release under the Tom Savage Trio banner.

Tom Savage has all but abandoned his acoustic guitar, in favour of a raucous, electrified, sound. Backed by bass(Geoff Chown) and drums ( Sandy Mackenzie), this is the quintessential power trio , taking on some of Savage’s most powerful roots-rock compositions to date.

From the first rumbling chord of ‘Leaving in a Hurry’, to the final sombre notes of ‘Arizona’, The County Line is an album that begs to be thrown on the car stereo and turned up loud, while driving down the open road.

Pure, unadulterated, dirt road rock ‘n’ roll.

Americana Roots Review of The County Line - by Don Zelazny
Kingston, Ontario’s Tom Savage fourth studio album called The County Line recently founds its way to my ears. Even though it is a 2008 release it deserves your attention if you haven’t heard it. This is the first release under the Tom Savage Trio name. The trio consists of Tom Savage – guitar, vocals and mandolin; Geoff Chown – bass; and Sandy Mackenzie -drums, backing vocals. Think of them as a modern day Americana power trio, at least on this disc. While previous releases from Tom (solo) have been more acoustic, this disc is plugged in and rowdy!

There are nine high octane cuts on the disc, which opens in a hurry with Leaving In A Hurry. The highlight of the disc is the title track, with a guitar attack I imagine must be great to hear live! Perhaps speaking of himself, or maybe some of his obvious influences (Neil Young) is the line from the track Old Rock ‘N’ Rollers:
“Old rock ‘n’ rollers never die, they just keep rollin’ on”

The only time they slow down for a breath is on Tired Old Cliche. Then its back to full speed and on the road for 48 Hours. Then like a good power trio, they end with the lengthy tune Arizona, which features a long power chord fade out ending that even does fade out and return! I held up my lighter when it was done!!

If you like your Americana amped up, i.e. The Bottle Rockets or Drive-By-Truckers then you are sure to like this disc, yet another stellar release from our neighbors to the North!

The County Line
High end Rockin--Country"Leaving In a Hurry" & "When You were Mine" are phenommenally good..."Arizona" came up a little short for me but maybe that is one that needs time to validate. Overall is a good tight mix--especially given the 'compact 3 Piece Size of Band'.
