Americana Highways Reviews Bridges & Kerosene

“Wretch Like Me,” is an exception. It’s loaded with John Prine’s tendencies & phrasing. But it’s good. Real good. “Rattlesnake,” while explicit is dipped for a few moments in Townes van Zandt’s cauldron where “Waitin’ Around To Die” was born. It has a wonderfully chilling trumpet (unexpected) & it smokes. The trumpet returns on “The Last Rose of Summer,” & slowly starts to sound like a possible signature sound for Mr. Mayse.
